Direct2D UDF

Is Direct2D the new GDIPlus?

Hmm - I think it is not! It is too complicated and Microsoft failed at the design :

But Direct2D is hardware accelerated and it has some features I always missed in GDIPlus, like loading/saving animated GIF´s, combining path´s or drawing bitmap´s in a perspective view...

check out the examples to see, what can be done

Thank you very much for your efforts on this UDF -> great stuff to play with  :thumbsup:

Maybe we can add this later to the AutoIt package...

Impressive!!!

As a quick way to grasp the power and speed of Direct2D, I think your _D2D_Matrix4x4_PerspectiveProjection.au3 example really sums it up.

Moreover, your example required only 33 statements to produce the effect.

Thanks for this library.

      I am busy with building a solution for change monitoring of VOIP call program and to be properly automated means among others need for some limited OCR functionality. Current works of others are way too much overkill for this case what makes the need to build it myself. But to do it properly I significantly have to increase my knowledge about digital graphics management.
      For now I already have discovered here and there some mind blowing  Autoit miracles what can be achieved with Windows own possibilities to manipulate that what is output to the monitor. And as far I can judge there are 2 options to process graphics without use of any external libraries like ImageMagick, FreeImage and so on. These are:
       WinAPI  GDIPlus It is for me quite obvious to have various holes in general understanding of graphics and it is once more very clear what advantages gives consistent general study in 1 or another official institutions like University.  Cause there you are introduced into certain domain of knowledge in a way which usually has been perfected over long period of time. So you are not overloaded by stuff which requires a certain amount of information to be initially clear for you. For example, before starting to solve physics you first learn to read, count and so on and then move to subjects like physics.
      Though in my case opportunity to study in such educational system I had only for 8 years, from my 7th to 15th year of age in the country that was falling apart now Ukraine but used to be USSR, was all what it was. After have immigrated to Netherlands possibilities to study further haven't occur. And this therefor causes often various implications when going deep in that or another field of practical knowledge acquiring for any needed physical result, like programming to perform enormous amount of tasks. In this particular case automating VOIP call program.
      Anyway, right now I think the best direction to move is to concentrate on as basic as possible image management and if someone would maybe explain in general what is a pixel will definitely help. Particularly I am very curious about how to do picture manipulations in Autoit. Especially would help a lot to produce eventually following functions:
      createImage($imageFileName, $width, $height, $color) readImagePixel($imageFileName, $x, $y)  writeImagePixel($imageFileName, $x, $y) I do not know exactly how image is handled in computer but preferably above mentioned functions should deal with so far possible origin of graphics creation on computer. But nevertheless I definitely would love to hear any proposition for solution.
      The problem with explaining screenshots:
       VOIPConnect full Window  Part of Window with control to monitor for changes  Exact location of area where actual changes occur and have to be processed  It comes down to a rectangle of approximately 51 pixel wide and 7 pixel high. In fact if I get to learn as far as to be able exactly read, write and compare 2 images consistently across different computers I could narrow down then even further the area to watch as little as a square of 2-5 pixels wide. 
      To finish here is last detail about particularly no need for ultra fast solution at all. This because it is needed only once when it is first run on a new computer and to have to wait few minutes while it is being set instead of just a few seconds make no sence.
      This is it and what I too think to do beside this very particular case is to purify out beautiful generic Autoit functions for core image manipulation by using WinAPI or/and GDIPlus.

      What I am trying to accomplish is to simplify a .PNG image and convert it to use only a specified pallet of colors. Eg if I have a pallet of 0xFF0000, 0x00FF00, 0x0000FF, it would change every pixel in the image to one of those three colors by whichever color is closest.
       
      The simplest method I have tried is simply converting the image to a 16 bit bitmap, and that does simplify the pallet of the image, but I want to be able to specify what colors it specifies to. The other problem is the resulting saved .BMP file is much larger (file size) than the original, and I don't know if it's possible to make a 16 bit jpg.
       
      It looks like _GDIPlus_BitmapConvertFormat is the solution but the help file doesn't go into how to use the pallet and I couldn't find an example that did what I needed. Can anyone help me?

      Hello all . i'm trying to build a tool to generate some pictures/graphs automatically based on some variables. I have completed the first part and I'm struggling now on what I thought would be the easiest part :
      In my tool there is a "preview" button, which helps to display on a new children GUI the generated picture. What I do in simplified :
      Global $g_hGraphics = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($g_hGUI) ;Then, I'll add multiple objects to this graphic, for example $Temp = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($temp[1]) _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImage($g_hGraphics,$temp)  
      I'm then able to have a preview GUI showing all my elements perfectly. This works but now I want to be able to really generate it and have a ".png" file written to disk.
      What I tried without success:
      $g_hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromGraphics($previewWidth, $previewHeight, $g_hGraphics) _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFile($g_hBitmap,$OUTPUTDIR & "\generated\test-"&@HOUR&@MIN&@SEC&".png") But what I write to file is a transparent PNG without anything.
      I'm pretty sure I'm missing something obvious there, I need your help
       
       
      NB : If this change your answer, my goal will be to generate transparent png, meaning I'll add multiple objects/pictures/texts on a transparent png background and if there are some "transparent holes" I need them to be transparent in the generated png.
       
      Thanks a lot for any help !

      Hi folks,
      I would like to create a traffic light like gui object, where the user (me) can see if something went well or not.
      For that I wrote this:
      $Kontrolllampe1 = GUICtrlCreateGraphic(432, 20, 31, 32) GUICtrlSetGraphic(-1, $GUI_GR_COLOR, 0x000000, 0xFFCC33) ;== yellow GUICtrlSetGraphic(-1, $GUI_GR_ELLIPSE, 6, 8, 20, 19) I got seven traffic lights.
      When I would like to change the color, what did I need to do?
      I tried this:
      Case $ButtonErstellen $Kontrolllampe1 = GUICtrlCreateGraphic(432, 20, 31, 32) GUICtrlSetGraphic(-1, $GUI_GR_COLOR, 0x000000, 0x00FF00) ;== green GUICtrlSetGraphic(-1, $GUI_GR_ELLIPSE, 6, 8, 20, 19) but I have to click the button twice to see a result
      Is there a possibility that I use something like
      Case $ButtonErstellen $Kontrolllampe1 = GUICtrlSetGraphic(-1, $GUI_GR_COLOR, 0x000000, 0x00FF00) ;== green (I know this doesn't work)
      Thank you in advance
