Detect a dark Screen like WinXP-Screensaver

Recommended Posts

Apfelkiller

Hello,

i need help with my script here.

I want to detect when my Screen is nearly or completly dark/black.

I'm using PixelChecksum(0,0,1919,1079) and it's giving me random numbers (e.g. 2690216355, 2589900821, 854331631, 481460664)

How can i compare that with a Black like 0xFFFFFF ?

The number you're getting is base 10, the number you're comparing it to is base 16 (Hex). You can directly compare them, as they are converted when compared to be the same base. BTW, black is 0x000000, not 0xFFFFFF that is bright white.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

      Hello, dear.
      I am a newbie in autoit language
      I don't master any other programming language.
      I also don't understand how to manage the DLL files
      In addition to all this I am blind, and as we all know the explanations provided for the blind in programming are very few.
      So I'm trying to rely on myself for learning.
      I work hard to design some simple software and tools that make it easier to use computers, as they perform some tasks that may be difficult for the blind.
      I am also looking for the programs that the blind need and cannot use it because it's haven't the compatibility with the screen reader, and i try to design a simple programs that do the same work.
      In these tools and programs I have to deal directly with screen readers, when i must to forcing these programs to read some processes and tasks that it cannot be read in normal mode.
      To force these programs to read, I have to deal with the API files.
      And as I said, I'm very weak in managing DLLs.
      So I hope you'll try to help me, please.
      I did a lot of research until I found the API file to manage the free screen reader (NVDA).
      It is open source
      It is based on CPP language and Python
      And I don't understand the both languages.
      For this I decided to put you an API file link here which is attached with it examples, source and DLL file
      I hope you can help me by convert these functions to AutoIt include file
      I offer you a very serious apology if the participation is a violation of the laws.
      I wish I could find here someone to help me.
      To download the file please click on this link
      http://www.nvda-project.org/nvdaControllerClient/nvdaControllerClient_20100219.7z
      and To download the free screen reader,  please following this link

      I repeat my apologies and thanks in advance.

      Hey there!
       
      Is there a way to detect movement only for 1 specific window?

      HWnd is not really working, it still detects movement in all the windows within the region

      This is my script:
       
      ;Checksum actual HotKeySet("{f2}", 'exit_') MsgBox(0, '', '0') Beep(500, 2000) $Hwnd = WinActive('') while 1 $Checksum = PixelChecksum(211, 650, 1094, 914, 1, $Hwnd) If PixelChecksum(211, 650, 1094, 914, 1, $Hwnd) <> $Checksum Then For $i = 1 To 100 Beep(1000, 50) Next MsgBox(0, '', 'New message!', 1) EndIf WEnd Func exit_() Beep(500, 1000) Exit 0 EndFunc I just want to check whenever a message comes because the app i use doesn't give notifications properly.

      Any help is really appreciated!

      MS Splash Screens
      The office 2016/17 office suite has made many people turn heads with its functions and especially their splash screen.
      I now present to you, the MS Style Splash Screen. For Rookies, Novices and anyone who wants a ready made splash screen for your gui application.

      You can now download it and also try it out yourself.
      You have three colors to choose from:
      Blue
      Red
      Green
      All three colours are from the famous programs.
      I also included the KODA form to you can have freedom with this splash screen.
      Note: the KODA form does not have the three colours as well as the correct blue. 

      Have fun and enjoy.
      Note:
      Thanks to kaz for updating the side scrolling dots.

      Hello,
      i am searching for a function that allows me some very specific functions for Screen Captures.
       
      First should be the possibillity to create a Screenshot from a specific window and this is possibly under another window but has to stay there and not getting forced to be in the first - layer position if this is clear enough :-) The other thing should be the ability to create a Screen Capture every couple minutes or a specific period.  
      I tried a lot of Screen Capture tools but neither can do both together.
      Also my try to create my own script with AutoIT failed, because of missing knoweledge about how to use it for this specific reasons, would be very kind if someone can tell me in the first place if this is possible at all and maybe someone has allready an idea about how to realize it?
       
      best regards
