Magnifier over objects magnified

2 posts in this topic

I know the rules, don't ask for people to write your script for you.. i just need a nudge in the right direction or just tell me if it's not possible.  Here's the skinny, I have an application that shows maps of different areas.  I need to have four areas displayed on the screen, the problem I have is the window isn't laid out well to manipulate the window(s) to easily display the maps.  My thoughts are if i can have each map where it can be seen then map out the coordinates to a "magnification tool" of some sort and re-display it in it's on GUI quartered out on the screen with the "screwed" up maps in the background as there is only one monitor hooked to these computers.  I have been unable to find much on something like this, except for an old post referring to an iGZoom which I think was from back in 2005 and I haven't been able to find anything else on it.  If have performed multiple search queries so I figured I would go ahead and ask the experts.

Thank you

Check out OnTopReplica. I believe it will suit your needs. https://ontopreplica.codeplex.com

Some notable features:

Advance > Click-forwarding - Allows you to interact with applications using OnTopReplica's Overlay.

Select Region > The Green + Button - Allows you to store the Region on a per app basis. This lets you quickly magnify to the proper coordinates. (Don't forget to press Enter before click done when naming the region.)

Position Lock - Allows you to quickly lock OnTopReplica to a corner or center of your screen.

 

Hope this helps. I really love this program. I can watch youtube videos or hulu using chrome in the background while I play dota 2. Got the regions saved. I just have to manually set opacity (transparency) and enable Advance > Click-Through which allows the OnTopReplica's Overlay to pass input to the app below it. When I play dota, I can still click on buttons the overlay is covering up using this option. Very useful.


My Scripts:

False Positive Reporter - Mass email all anti virus vendors with an attachment of your program for easy whitelisting.

PortableApps.com App Creation Wizard  - A simple GUI-based Wizard for creating PortableApps.

AutoISO  - Automatic ISO Image creation using ImgBurn.

SoundBoard - Play any song or sound you want at the press of a hotkey

      Polaroider 1.0.3.1
      Easily Create a picture as a Polaroid and be able after, to create Custom Photos Polaroid Collage.
      May be you know Pola a soft for create easily Polaroid-like photos from your digital images, but after some tries, i didn't find it very handy !
      So i made mine.
       

      Photo can be positioned by drag and zoomed/unzoomed with mouse wheel ( sorry for Touchpad user    )
      Polaroid can be inclined 10 or 20 degrees, on left or right, and with simple or multiple frames.
      Inclination will only be visible on the saved shoot.
      It is also saved with a transparent background for be able to create "Pêle-Mêles" (in french) with a photo editor.
      I have set the desktop as save directory.
      previous downloads : 122
       
      source and executable are available in the Download Section
      All files are included in script.
      I hope you will like it !
      Happy Shooting !

      I'm doing some tests with the ">Magnifier Functions udf" by Ascend4nt.
      Here is a draft for a magnifying glass.
       
       

      I have two problems:
      Issue 1)  When I start the script, sometimes it starts properly, while other times the lens shows only a black box instead of the magnified area. I saw that in those cases, interrupting the script by pressing esc and running it again several times solves this strange problem (ie, after several reboots of the script, it works correctly... (?))
      Problem 2) when the lens works well and you try to drag the lens, the image that is located inside the lens remains frozen until the lens is dropped. I wish that the content of the lens continues to update even while dragging. I tried to use the _WinAPI_SetTimer to update the contents of the lens even while dragging, but without success  (set the variable $b_Test_WinAPI_SetTimer = True at line 11 to see the unsuccessfully attempt)
      Any suggestions for achieve this purpose will be appreciated
      thanks

      This lens snippet (assembled using other snippets from the forum and from the help file)  makes memory usage grow linearly, and never released till closed.
      could someone tell me what should I change to make it do a regular use of memory?
      thanks

      I'm again on a script that simulates a lens on the screen, >here my previous effort that works quite well but only in one mode, that is: it magnifies the area around the mouse while you move it and it shows the zoomed area into the "lens" window that stays somewhere on the screen.

      In the new mode that I would like to achieve, should be magnifyed the area that lies behind the "lens" window and when you move that window it should magnify what's behind it.
      Unfortunately here arises the problem, the magnifier magnifies itself recursively, (because it capture the surface of the "lens" itself and not what's behind) with the unwanted result of a zoom area that seems empty.

      To see the unwanted effect, just change the value of the variable $bFollowMouse from True to False anf then move the "magnifier" window around.
      (the problem is that the function _ScreenCapture_Capture() should be able to capture behind a window)
      (I wish the function _ScreenCapture_Capture() where able to capture behind a window)

      My question is:
      Is there a way to read the content that lies behind the "lens" window? (hopefully avoiding ways like turn off the "lens" windows, make the SnapShot of what's behind, and turn on the "lens" window again, that should result in an ugly flickering effect)

      any advise is welcome,
      thanks
