Create image on the fly

7 posts in this topic

Is it possible to have a function that create image on the fly based on user input?

Let say, user input "AutoIT Rulez888!!" then this function will create a file with .png extension that will display the text (image) "AutoIT Rulez888!!".

We can choose the font, size and the target filename.

And second, could we create the above image with not only text, but with another predefined image?

Example: '>

When user input "AutoIT Rulez888!!", it will create a balloon (marker) like the one from google above with text "AutoIT Rulez888!!" on the balloon.

So instead of "A" on the baloon (marker), now it's "AutoIT Rulez888!!" on the balloon.

Not possible?

UEZ? :P

michaelslamet,

the first part isn't that hard to implement. The second part is a little more tricky but also not impossible. ;)

Just look in the Beta help file in GDI+ section how to generate text in a bitmap by calculating its size.

For the second part I will try something when I find some spare time...

Thank you UEZ :)

By saying "Just look in the Beta help file", you mean this will not work with 3.8.8.1 ?

Also, from the old post here, I got a application named "fly" that can create an image on the fly: http://martin.gleeson.com/fly/using.html

Seems pretty simple to use, but surely it cant help for questions no 2.

Should we code it with pure AutoIT or use this external application? Please advice :)

Yes, a lot of additional GDI+ functions were added to the latest beta and those new functions are not available in 3.3.8.1.

Also your second question can be more easily implemented using the "new" GDI+ functions.

Just have a look to the new functions and its examples.
