How can I search for a certain color in a background or masked window by other windows( no minimized ), and get the color's relative window's coordinates ;) ??

Is it possible ? I appreciate any help....

It is better to simply look at the controls of the application.

You better didn't answer...

I don't want to click anything ! I want to know the position of a certain image while the window is masked by other windows or minimized.

Thanks for your high quality post

PixelSearch will not work on a program that is minimized or not visible.

Yes,I observed, and even if is masked by other window it won't work.Pretty bad ;)

But is there any UDF for AutoIt that could do this ?

Or the API from MSDN ? I don't know how to search there...

If it is a simple static window then are there controls on the window? Second, is it a standard window or a custom type such as a java window?

what happens when you use the AutoIt Window info tool on the window in question?

Well I need to find certain colors in an image and to get the coordinates of them. I don't need any controls or buttons... and is a standard image.

And when I use AWindow Tool its finding the color

Thankyou for replies ... and I was looking towards the method of capturing a bitmap of the window in memory and to search invisible on that bitmap the position of the pixel I want to find = > finding the pixel on a hidden window ;)

Your not making sense. You say "I need to find certain colors in an image and to get the coordinates of them" and say at the same time it is a static window. If it is static then why do you need to search for certain colors? Static means the image doesn't change. You imply the image changes. Does the image change? Either way would you care to share a screenshot of the image you are dealing with? That would make it much easier to see what we are dealing with.

O sorry I didn't know the real difference ;) Its a webbrowser window and I want to download many photos while hidden to not interference with my usual activity like playing a game. But the images aren't moving, the browser's window is sometimes increasing or decreasing in dimention. So everytime I need to ckeck for a certain color and get the coordinates while hidden or minimized

That makes more sense. There is a different approach that would work much better for you seeing how you are downloading pictires. If you look at IE.au3 you can get all the pictures using

_IEImgGetCollection

look in the help file and you can see an example of how to get a collection. It would be a simple matter of downloading the images once you get the collection. That way you don't need to worry about the IE window interfering with anything else you are doing.

I forgot to mention that I can't use IE or Google Chrome and can't install that plug-in for FireFox to work with the UDF because of good reasons ;) ( long story....but trust me I can't )

I can use only Firefox lol, so I need to adapt for it ...

Why can't you use IE? It is built into windows. Does your location or who owns the machine block you?

Unfortunetly...yes..;)( Thats why I cant use it

But please I don't want to deviate from the subject, How can I search for a specific pixel color in a background hidden window ??

Then we can't help you for we will not be a part of you trying to evade or bypass security. Either use it for legit reasons with the owner's blessing or don't do it at all. Your choice.

What do you mean by bypass security ? What security ??

You didn't understand what Im asking for, I want to know how can I find a pixel color in a background window, the same subject was posted in other threads too but I don't know how to apply it, I appreciate if anyone could help me.

Manadar's (and Greenseed's) example.au3 and _PixelGetColor.au3 provide working example of how to basically take a screenshot to memory then pixelsearch it. You've previously linked to it, here it is again. After reading about it then running it, seems to work fine for me. You need to temporarily bring up the window to search so you can get a screenshot, then hide the window, then you can search the screenshot later on in your script. For me I brought Firefox to the foreground-maximized, took the "screenshot", then hid the Firefox window again. I then searched the 10x10 pixel box in the top left corner (starting at 0,0) for the color 0xDCCEBF and found it at several locations: 0,3; 1,3; and 2,3.

You said yes to this question: "Does your location or who owns the machine block you?"

That means you are trying to get past a security measure.

Understand now?

Yes I said that, and its true, but you understand me wrong, its my computer and my parents blocked my computer with limited user account( they are paranoid ) and they say to not use IE and uninstalled it ;) and with limited access I cant install it :) so I really need to do it on the default browser ff

      I'm trying to assign a faint text in the background to an input field that disappears after the input has started. This should have a certain color such as gray.

      hello guys, please i need your help
      am trying to work with CreateWindowEx api, i created the window with it controls, also i setup the call back function
      i'am using WinMSGLoop to focus with the keyboard.
      here i have a problem, i hope that you can help me.
      on the controls i used the UDF that comme with the autoit, such as _GUIButton_Create, _GUIListBox_Create....
      but i can't find a STATIC control UDF, for that i used this

      local $h_ssrvlbl = _WinAPI_CreateWindowEx(0, "STATIC", "الخادم", BitOr($WS_VISIBLE, $WS_CHILD, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN), 250, 10, 100, 20, $hWnd)
      as you can see here, there is an arabic text, so here is the problem, the arabic text isn't show normally, what is the problem here?
      also i have  an other question about keyboard focus, when i used WinMSGLoop, it worked, but if i press alt+tab to switch windows or focus an other window and return back to my window, the focus of control is kill.
      can any one help me to solve that please?
      my code will be as file here with the include files
      i hope can any one help me here
      thanks in advance

      Hello everyone,
      I have several signals on the screen that need to be monitored while a program is running. These signals are scattered around an image which is maximized on 4  equal resolution screens - the AutoIT Window Info does not recognize any objects on the program meaning that I'm left with the PixelSearch() and PixelCheckSum() functions to monitor the signals:
      The signals are as small as a 5x5 pixel area and their coordinates are known.
      I've been digging around for a while now in this forum about the PixelSearch() and PixelCheckSum()  and found some interesting and useful ideas for the use of them. I also came across some other UDF functions like MultiMon(), FastFind(), TtColXY() and the ImageSearch2015 scripts that might be useful for the final output. I don't know if hovering the mouse by using TtColXY() and output its ToolTip() information onto the log file will be faster than using PixelSearch() and/or PixelCheckSum() in a loop for all signals' coordinates.
      The colours of the signals are below:
      red - 0x00FF00 (opaque red)
      green - 0x00FF00 (opaque green)
      yellow - 0xFFFF00 (opaque yellow)
      black - 0x000000 (opaque black, default colour)
      EDIT:
      The desired output is to monitor and record/log the changes and status of each inside a .txt file or a .csv with the below format: 
      Local Machine Time        Signal,      Change,               delta-t
      14:32:07                  Signal1     Green - Yellow         DELTA-t1
      14:34:02                  Signal1     Yellow - Red           DELTA-t1
      14:35:14                  Signal2     Yellow - Red           DELTA-t2
      ...
      Below is the code I came up with. 
      #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <misc.au3> #include <Date.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <File.au3> #include <ScreenCapture.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WinAPIHObj.au3> Global $program_name, $program_open, $Wname, $tCurrent Global $button_xy[2] = [150, 175] Global $iniColour, $ColourCheck, $NewCheck Global $Red, $Green, $Blue, $Nil Global $sFilePath = @ScriptDir & "\Signals_status.txt" Global $SignalID[10] = ["Signal_1", "Signal_2", "Signal_3", "Signal_4", "Signal_5", "Signal_6", "Signal_7", "Signal_8", "Signal_9", "Signal_10"] $program_name = "Signals.exe" $Wname = "Training Task 3" $program_open = ShellExecute($program_name, @ScriptDir) WinWait($Wname) $iniColour = "0x" & Hex(PixelGetColor($button_xy[0], $button_xy[1]), 6) ;~ $iniChecksum = "0x" & Hex(PixelChecksum($button_xy[0], $button_xy[0] - 5, $button_xy[1], $button_xy[1] + 5), 6) $ColourCheck = "0x" & Hex(PixelChecksum($button_xy[0], $button_xy[0] - 5, $button_xy[1], $button_xy[1] + 5, 1, $Wname), 6) ConsoleWrite(_ColourID($iniColour) & " // " & _ColourID($ColourCheck) & @CRLF) ;~ $ColourCheck = "0x " & Hex(PixelGetColor($button_xy[0], $button_xy[1]), 6) $iniColour = $ColourCheck ;$iniChecksum = $currentCheck Do ;~ While 1 _WindowOnTop() _Close_Notepad() $NewCheck = "0x" & Hex(PixelChecksum($button_xy[0], $button_xy[0] - 5, $button_xy[1], $button_xy[1] + 5, 1, $Wname), 6) $tCurrent = _NowCalc() $LogFile = FileOpen($sFilePath, 2) FileWriteLine($LogFile, "Local Machine Time " & "Signal, " & "Change, " & "delta-t") ;~ $ColourCheck = "0x" & Hex(PixelChecksum($button_xy[0], $button_xy[0] - 5, $button_xy[1], $button_xy[1] + 5, 1, $Wname), 6) If $ColourCheck <> $NewCheck Then ;If there's a colour change from the current colour $ColourCheck = $NewCheck Local $tChange, $NewCheckID, $ColourCheckID, $sLogMsg $tChange = _NowCalc() ConsoleWrite("Colour changed!" & @CRLF) $ColourCheckID = _ColourID($ColourCheck) $NewCheckID = _ColourID($NewCheck) $iTimeDiffh = _DateDiff('h', $tChange, $tCurrent) ; time difference in hours $iTimeDiffm = _DateDiff('n', $tChange, $tCurrent) ; time difference in minutes $iTimeDiffs = _DateDiff('s', $tChange, $tCurrent) ; time difference in seconds $durationCheckSum = $iTimeDiffh & ":" & $iTimeDiffm & ":" & $iTimeDiffs ; Timestamp of the signal until PixelCheckSum $sLogMsg = " " & $SignalID[0] & " " & $ColourCheckID & " - " & $NewCheckID & " " & $durationCheckSum _FileWriteLog($LogFile, $sLogMsg) ElseIf $ColourCheck = $NewCheck Then Local $Colour_check = _ColourID("0x" & Hex(PixelChecksum($button_xy[0], $button_xy[0] - 5, $button_xy[1], $button_xy[1] + 5, 1, $Wname), 6)) ConsoleWrite($tCurrent & " " & $Colour_check & @CRLF) EndIf FileClose($sFilePath) Until Not ProcessExists($program_name) And Not WinExists($Wname) _IsProgramOpen() Func _Close_Notepad() $notepad_open = ProcessExists("notepad.exe") ?

      goodmorning; autoit team
      please their are any youtube search way working?
