Pixel detection on Surface Pro

Recommended Posts

MelaField

Hi everyone. It's been some months from when I started using autoit. Never had any issues with the PC desktop or the notebook.

I recently purchased a Surface Pro (1° gen) and no script related to any Pixel[..] works

Here's why: '>

Using autoit Window info (with magnify active) I get wrong pixels

I updated windows 8, tried a new fresh installation, but the problem stay. I already tried using the Beta release of autoit

Show us your code. I cans see why it wouldn't work if you use autoit to get the pixel color and coordinates that it couldn't read it when asked to. I also don't understand your explanation of why it doesn't work.


Get Scite to add a popup when you use a 3rd party UDF -> http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/docs/SciTE4AutoIt3/user-calltip-manager.html

Hey, thanks for the prompt reply.

An example of code could be:

Local $white=PixelSearch(0,0,1366,768,0XFFFFFF,0)
Mousemove("left",$white[0],$white[1])

 

It won't find the pixel on the desktop background (that has that color). On PC desktop and notebook it works, but not on the surface pro,

With autoit window info, using Magnify, it doesn't detect the right pixel. The pic show the mouse pointed in a blue point, but on Magnify I get another portion of the screen.

Surface is running Windows RT right ? dunno if that is compatible with au3.

So may be hard to detect pink laserbeam farting zebras.

He is mentioning surface pro 1, according to wikipedia it ran RT, then it became Surface RT, then surface 2 came, also with RT.

Edit, sorry, you're right, I looked at the non pro version, :P

From that link.

Operating system Windows RT (Surface devices) or Windows 8 (Surface Pro devices)

Already corrected myself :D thanks :)

Maybe the tablets handles/communicates with the gfx differently, like the new pro3 is advertised with "Pixel-Free" technology, dunno what that means but may have some something to say.

Pixel-free. Microsoft says that the 2160 x 1440 Surface Pro 3 screen is "pixel-free," which is really the same claim that Apple makes when it describes screens on its own devices as being "Retina": Individual pixels are too small for the human eye to see at a normal distance from the screen. The screen has 50 percent more pixels than Surface Pro 2.

Surface pro was using the 125% as default, I changed it to 100% and now the pixel are detected in the proper way!
