Hi,

I've attached an example picture of a shape which i would like to calculate it's area. Let's say a user has marked this kind of shaped area on the screen and you need to run some calculations on it, like getting the area of it.

- How would you go about this problem?

Thanks in advance :)

This is too vague. What do you mean exactly be area? The amount of black pixels? The amount of cm2? And what do you mean by "a user has marked this"? Does that mean you have the coordinates, dimensions and radii of the involved geometric shapes? (From the looks of it, two circles, a rectangle and a triangle...)


Roses are FF0000, violets are 0000FF... All my base are belong to you.

@Valuater great response, way to go!
@SadBunny I have the whole coordinates and i need to calculate the area - by that i mean the number of pixels - I can convert these to whatever I want afterwards anyway.

I can also see circles and rectangles and such but how to i make a code to analyze and calculate that?!

You'd be better off asking this question on a math or drafting forum rather than here. I don't see how this would pertain to AutoIt until you have the math or the algorithm needed to do it.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Given that in the example case one has several geometric 2nd degree shapes (one could be considered a circle but another is clearly an ellipsis) partly overlapping asymetrically, I bet my keyboard that the mathematical solution will be either very complex or too complex to be expressed in what maths call "elementary functions". For instance, just computing the common part between the ellipsis and the square (admit it is one) is awful.

For the well-known goat and field problem (involving just two overlapping circles), see http://mathforum.org/library/drmath/view/51746.html
It was only in 1995 that a closed-form solution was discovered by Shepherd and van Eetvelt.

I'd go for the pedestrian way which is guaranteed to work whatever image is given: examine the bitmap row after row and accumulate the black pixels.

I may not know what I am talking about, but if the pic above is an example, and the colors are going to be that dramatic, then why not just count the pixels in the image (all the same color) then figure out how many pixels are in a inch squared, and then create a ratio to solve

 

Actually after reading @jchd's last comment, I think we are on the same page

      First I would just like to say HELLO! to anyone reading. It has been a while since I've posted to the Forums but I'm always crawling around.
      Now to the matter at hand. I have been looking high and low for a simplistic answer my burned out brain can find but to no avail. I've only recently upped my AutoIt skill and only by a little bit such as ordering my script neatly with my own UDFs and using Global/Dim more often to make my GUI creation understandable and easy to keep things orderly. My current problem however is figuring out how to make my newest endeavor work which is my own "Debugger". I've made a GUI with an Edit Control to display what my Variables are holding and other information from a concurrently running Script. I have access to all of the scripts I'm attempting to connect but I'm dumbfounded on how I would separately read variable information from one running script into another. I'll provide my "Debugger" script that I want to read variables into and a "Meta Script" I'd want to pass info from.

Please forgive anything ignorant but point it out if you will, I'll take any pointers to get better! (I usually use a Select to get $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE but this is early on)
      Now if I made another script with a basic GUI similar to this and wanted to read say the GUI Width ($gMainW) into the Debugger Edit Control could I do it? If so, could I do it for every variable I have in a script? I read something about the Run function and adding the variables as an option parameter I believe which I think I could do with an array to keep it from being super long and ugly but would that be the only way to do this? Any information is going to be appreciated and thank you in advance for your time!
       
      Edit: Sadly it just dawned on me that I could make a UDF that will create a child window that will do this instead of having a separate script trying to invade another... I'll still be keeping an eye on this for any comments but I apologize if I wasted your time!

      Hello everybody (and sorry for my bad english)

      I try to get the position of a contextmenu (GUICtrlCreateContextMenu) on a TreeView, with ControlGetPos, but i can't.
      Someone can help me ? Thank you :)

      PS: I need the position to select item wtih rightclick before read the text of the item, because rightclick don't select item (only leftclick).

      Hello eveyone,
      I installed the latest version of Autoit (x86 - for greater compatibility) and SciTE.
      Every time I want to generate the GUI code designed in Koda, the program freezes (only Koda, not SciTE).
      Have you ever had this problem? Do you know how to fix it?
      Thanks!

      hello sirs, i've created a tool to the blind users, this tool helps the blind to listen to a audio effect when moving between the GUIs controls on they computers
      where this tool can get the class for the current focus control and play a sound from a folder
