2 different pixel search and clicking it after another

Recommended Posts


this is my first script and sorry if it is not perfect,

HotKeySet ("{F1}", "start")
HotKeySet ("{F2}", "stop")

 $Variable1 = PixelSearch (37, 0, 1195, 742, 0x752850)

Func stop()

Func start()
 $on = 1
While $on = 1
$Variable = PixelSearch (37, 0, 1195, 742,0x9AD234)
if IsArray ($Variable) Then
        MouseMove ($Variable [0], $Variable [1], 0)

        MouseClick ("left")
        Sleep (1000)

$Variable1 = PixelSearch (37, 0, 1195, 742, 0x752850)
If IsArray ($Variable1) Then
        MouseMove ($Variable1 [0], $Variable1 [1], 0)
        MouseClick ("left")
        Sleep (1500)


While 1
    Sleep (100)

$variable is always clicking the pixel but it cannot go through $variable1

and also a code that search always for the $variable after the $variable1 performs, 

 please help me..

The following is NOT meant to be rude. Only to inform and to ask questions.


Your new. Glad you are here. Now, before I go further, I have no idea the INTENT of your script. It could be for anything. OK, got that out of the way.

Now, here is the rub. Usually the new person who comes here who does pixel searching and mouse moves is 99% of the time using it for a game. That will be a problem. You see, game automation is not allowed to be discussed here in the AutoIt forum. Again, I have no idea if that is your intent or not but if it is, then you may want to ask a moderator to delete your post. It will save lots of time and save you lots of grief. If you have questions on our forum rules you can look here. We are happy to help you, however we have to go by the forum rules.

Now if game automation isn't your intent, would you be so kind in telling us the name of your application you are automating? In just about every case using pixel searching is a bad idea for it is notoriously unreliable. Usually one can hook into the controls of the application to do what they need and in some cases command line can be used and the GUI can be bypassed all together. Using this approach will be much more rewarding to you and save you time.

thank you for your reply, im only new to this and i learn only through videos, im using ms paint for this with a resolution of 768x1280. i want only a script that will click my 1st color and then it will click the 2nd color and back again to the 1st color and so on. the color given in my script above was the result of using autoit info tool. 

but the problem is,  

1. only clicking 1st color and then no click on 2nd color.

2. and i want to have it return to search for 1st color and so on,

OK, you make this in MSPaint but for what practical purpose will it serve? Again, I want to point out how notoriously unreliable using pixel search is. Even if you get this to work - how will this help you? Saying you want to "learn" I can understand, however if the knowledge doesn't really help you in any practical purpose, whats the point?

Also, your script is searching a LARGE area - pretty much the entire screen. This also is a huge red flag in that this looks like game automation. (I can point to lots of post that look the same as yours) If you are using MSPaint the colors are static and not moving. Why do you need to do a search on the entire screen? You would be able to pick the exact spot you want to look if the picture was not changing

Third thing - why do you need to loop in MSPaint? Again, it is STATIC image, not moving so once you find a pixel, why do you need to search for it again?

Forth thing - Why do you need to do a mouse click on the spot where the color is found? Unless you have a certain control in MSPaint preset before you run your script the mouse click won't do anything.

I'm sorry, but I'm having a real hard time believing you are using MSPaint to do a pixel search. It makes no sense. Everything your doing is saying you are trying to automate a game. At this point you are on a very short leash and I've alerted a moderator to take a look.
