How to use PixelSearch to search the specified pixel dimension..?

Recommended Posts

gracea

I am having difficulties using ImageSearch and knowing that if i compiled my imagesearch script and use it to other pc (which autoit never installed on it) it would required the imagesearch dll files to be manually copied to those pc. So far i do not want to do copying dll files to those pc.

I think..

ImageSearch can/will search for the dimension of the image..

While PixelSearch search for the coordinate (like..1 pixel point)..

Question:

How to code PixelSearch to search for the specified "pixel in dimension" instead of coordinate-only (1-pixel-point) then MouseMove on specified coordinate inside the specified "pixel in dimension"?

It kind a pixel search authenticate by dimension not by coordinate?!

Does it even possible?

Without seeing your code it is difficult to say how well it will translate to another machine. PixelSearch is, by its nature, somewhat volatile. Can you please give us a better idea of what you're trying to accomplish? 99% of the time there is a much easier way to manipulate a window or application (Control commands, etc.) which is more likely to work across different PCs.

Hey JLogan3o13

I am hoping this could be done only for PixelSearch to prevent additional files (like dll and bmp/png).

Maybe a simple things but i am not a logical person (also not a programmer) specially most on complex things.

I wanted this code to search not by coordinate but by dimension. It is from sample out here just edited to prevent confusion to me.

$Targett = PixelSearch(0,0,1359,767,0X7E0000)   ;----- 0X7E0000 = THE TARGET (IPMSG ICON)
If Not @error Then
    MouseMove($Targett[0],$Targett[1],1)    ;----- ,1 = MOUSE SPEED 1=FASTEST 0=INSTANT 10=DEFAULT 100=SLOWEST
EndIf

I think the above code will only search the 0X7E0000 (a-pixel-point-only like 1pixel) from the icon of ipmsg.

According to my ipmsg icon cropping it has a dimension of 16x16 pixel. But PixelSearch only search 1pixel point inside that 16X16 pixel dimension where i point the Au3Info.exe tool.

I wanted the above script to translate it so that it would actually search the "whole 16x16 pixel".

maybe

Opt("PixelCoordMode", 0) ; relative coords to the defined window

Still have no idea even pixelcoordmode recommendation.

Find this and i'm just staring at it..

AutoItSetOption("PixelCoordMode", 1)    ;----- 1 = WHOLE SCREEN AREA (NOT WINDOWS)
Sleep(5000)
$var = MouseGetPos()
MsgBox(0, " ", $var[0] & " " & $var[1])

I knew the pixelsearch will search the entire screen pixel by pixel. What i mean is the coordinate point.

Don't you just want to search the 16x16 area?

gracea,

Please explain exactly what you are trying to do and in what app - if possible with a screenshot showing this coloured pixel for which you are searching. At the moment we are all very confused as to whether you are looking for a pixel, an image, or something else entirely. :wacko:

Don't you just want to search the 16x16 area?

 

I'm sorry if im not making sense if this is possible.

No. The 16x16 area is the target (it is the icon). The search area is the whole screen 1360x768.

In PixelSearch currently the target area is 1 pixel only.

What i want to achieve is the target area is 16x16 pixel.

The PixelSearch will look on the whole screen for 16x16 pixel.

gracea,

As its name suggests, PixelSearch looks for a single pixel not a 16x16 section - so I think you not going to be able to do what you seem to be asking. :(>

But I return to the other part of my question: what are you trying to do when you find this "icon"? What is the end point of all this? As was pointed out right at the beginning of this thread, there might well be other ways to automate the app you are using. So please give more details as to the purpose of all this. :)

essentially you only want it to search for the whole icon, that is not a single pixel :(

IPMsg is only my example. IPMsg is IP Messenger.

For ImageSearch usage.

Reason for not using it (for now) is because it requires additional file (ImageSearchDll.dll) when i used my script to more than 20 pc. It is definitely easy to copy that file to 20 pc. But i do not want to do that - i just want to run the my script.

 

For PixelSearch usage..

Reason for using PixelSearch is because it does not required additional file to copy to other pc.

Reason for asking the 16x16 pixel target is that i am assuming that my target pixel "0X7E0000" from the example below would have identical/same pixel that PixelSearch would find (one is IPMsg icon and other is not).

$Targett = PixelSearch(0,0,1359,767,0X7E0000)   ;----- 0X7E0000 = THE TARGET (IPMSG ICON) 
If Not @error Then
     MouseMove($Targett[0],$Targett[1],1)    ;----- ,1 = MOUSE SPEED 1=FASTEST 0=INSTANT 10=DEFAULT 100=SLOWEST 
EndIf

@Melba23

IPMsg is only my example.

Same thing if those 16x16 pixel dimension was found then MouseMove then MouseClick. I know there is other solution like if ProcessExists and WinExists. I just thought that target pixel (not searched) is not restricted by 1 pixel only. I am also authenticating IPMsg system tray icon - it has 3 system icon image type.

 

As for what Melba23 recent statement. I think she also understood what i wanted. She think it is not possible.

And maybe i should stick to my current example.

 

"Thank You" again for all your time.

PixelChecksum?

There are all kinds of different ways to search an image, but ultimately, direct automation is way way faster and more reliable than farting around with images.

I do know the are some reasons you might need search but the ones that are not game bots are few and far between.
