ImageSearch gives Unterminated String

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I just found ImageSearch library, very cool! 

But when I tried to test it out I got strange errors, the only one I can't seem to get around is:

Line 46 (File "C:\....\ImageSearchDLL\ImageSearchTest.au3"): 


Error: Unterminated String.

Thats the error but my script doesn't even have 46 lines so it must be in something its importing, here's the test script:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include "ImageSearchDLL.dll"
#include "ImageSearch.au3"

local $x, $y, $search

$search = _ImageSearch('search.bmp', 0, $x, $y, 0)
if $search = 1 then

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "imagesearch", $x, 10)

its not line 46 in the imageSearch.au3 either. So! my thinking is its a problem with the DLL. 

I'm on windows 7, could it be that imagesearch.dll is not compatible with windows 7??

That would make me quite sad. Can someone help me? Thanks so much!

I found a "fixed" version that works with windows 7 here on the forums somewhere. attached is the file I found. I have no idea what was done to fix these unterminated string errors I kept getting but I must have been using a very old version or something. hope this helps others!

You can't include a DLL. Source code in included and DLL's are called.


Thanks Jos, I'll remember that, I had tried not including the DLL before but I kept getting other errors too.

      Hello i got problem with ImageSearchDll.dll
      It works for me perfect always I made program which one use a lot of ImageSearch funcs on 64bit.
      I got 64bit and i copied to c:/Windows - ImageSearchDll.dll 64bit version
      But I encountered some friends got 32bit OS and then if I compile program for 32bit then they put ImageSearchDll.dll 32bit ver on windows dir and program crash when function is call.
      it happens always :/
      How to run this func on 32bit?

      I saw a couple topics about both mousedrag and imagesearch in background or minimized window, but none of them has the solution, and they were old topics.
      So I wanted to ask whether there is a way to mouse drag without the cursor to move, (I want to use mouse when mousedrag is working on a window). I don't know whether I can mix ControlMove with some other stuff or any other way?
      And also for the image search, is there any way to search for image (or pixel) in a background or minimized window? I thought maybe there is a au3 or dll or ... file for doing this.
      Another question I have: Any way to pinch zoom (two fingers) a window like "windows photo viewer" to zoom in or out? I saw something almost the same here, but not what I want.
      I appreciate it.

      I am trying to integrate imagesearch into a script I am making. When I try to compile the script I get the following inside imagesearch.au3 under all 4 of the imagesearch.au3 defined functions:
      "Error: Missing separator character before keyword"
      I tried the beta version of Autoit and it is doing the same thing. I am using the x32 version of the imagesearch.au3 found here -,d.amc
      I have put the imagesearchDLL.dll in both the includes directory and the system32 directory. I am using x64 Windows 8.1 Pro. I cant see anything wrong. Please help.

      I am back once again to ask for assistance. I am just trying to fool around with the "ImageSearch" function in order to detect when certain elements appear on my active window to then respond to. To begin testing this I simply cut out a small segment of my background, saved it as a BMP, and used that as the bmp for the search function. I had hoped for it to just run through quickly and say it found it and spit out the X Y coords of where it was found. Instead I am getting this :
      Here's my script thus far :
      #Include <msgBoxConstants.au3> #Include <ImageSearch.au3> global $x = 0 global $y = 0 CheckForImage () Func checkForImage () Local $Search = _ImageSearchArea ('ninjaCheck.bmp', 1, 0, 0, 1366, 768, $x, $y, 100) If $Search = 1 Then MsgBox ($IDOK,"Found",$resultPosition) EndIf EndFunc While 1 Sleep (10) WEnd What I would like assistance with is how do I "Debug" this in order to see where/why it is failing.
      I've reviewed but I am not entirely sure how to apply the information. If I could get a return on "Hey, this Func or This Line is where I died" , that would be awesome.
      Any suggestions on how I can tackle this issue?
      Thank you for your time!
      checkNinja.bmp is " " around it now and it has the same result
