GetPixel - Pixel Color of background Window

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

as I used this function in a lot of projects, I might as well share it :)

It gets a color value from a background (or foreground of course) window by using a combination of WinAPI.au3 and GDIPlus.au3 (might as well be replaced with https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd144909(v=vs.85).aspx which should work too and is maybe a bit faster, as it wouldn't need to create an extra GDIPlus Bitmap).

 

Long story short; here is the function:

 

;===================================================================================================================================
;
; Description:      Gets the Color Value from a Pixel (possible in background windows [not hidden!])
; Syntax:           GetColor()
; Parameter(s):
;                   $iX - X Coordinate (In the Window, not whole Screen), get it by using the Autoit Window Info tool!
;                   $iY - Y Coordinate (In the Window, not whole Screen), get it by using the Autoit Window Info tool!
;                   $WinHandle - Handle obtained by WinGetHandle
;                   $iWidth - Width of the Window to Capture
;                   $iHeight - Height of the Window to Capture
;
; Return Value(s):  Hex of Color Value
;
; Requirements: 
; #RequireAdmin Braucht Adminrechte falls ihr auf ein Programm mit Adminrechten zugreifen wollt!
;#include <WinAPI.au3>
;#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
;#include <GDIPlus.au3>
;#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
; #include <Array.au3>
;
; Note: Does NOT work on hidden or minimized windows as Windows stops rendering them.
;       If you do not want to put in the $WinHandle all the time, replace the $WinHandle Parameter
;       with $WinHandle = $hwnd (if $hwnd is your Handle obtained by WinGetHandle)
;
;       Tested only on Windows 10 Professional 64 Bit
;
;===================================================================================================================================

Func GetColor($iX,$iY,$WinHandle)

    _GDIPlus_Startup()

    Local $aPos = WinGetPos($WinHandle)
    $iWidth = $aPos[2]
    $iHeight = $aPos[3]
    Local $hDDC = _WinAPI_GetDC($WinHandle)
    Local $hCDC = _WinAPI_CreateCompatibleDC($hDDC)

    $hBMP = _WinAPI_CreateCompatibleBitmap($hDDC, $iWidth, $iHeight)


    _WinAPI_SelectObject($hCDC, $hBMP)
    DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "PrintWindow", "hwnd", $WinHandle, "hwnd", $hCDC, "int", 0)
    _WinAPI_BitBlt($hCDC, 0, 0, $iWidth, $iHeight, $hDDC, 0, 0, $__SCREENCAPTURECONSTANT_SRCCOPY)


     $BMP = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hBMP)
     Local $aPixelColor = _GDIPlus_BitmapGetPixel($BMP, $iX, $iY)

    _WinAPI_ReleaseDC($WinHandle, $hDDC)
    _WinAPI_DeleteDC($hCDC)
    _WinAPI_DeleteObject($hBMP)
   _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($BMP)
    _GDIPlus_Shutdown()

    Return Hex($aPixelColor, 6)
EndFunc   ;==>GetColor


And when we are at it, here is a little program to get the right color values for your program, just press Shift + X after configuration it, by putting in the right Program Title and you will get the coordinates and the color value of your mouse position inside of the program you wanted ^^

 

; #RequireAdmin Braucht Adminrechte falls ihr auf ein Programm mit Adminrechten zugreifen wollt!
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#include <Array.au3>


HotKeySet("{ESC}","_exit")
HotKeySet("X","Go")
Global $x
Global $y
Global $hBMP
;~ MsgBox(0,"","OK!")
$Title = "PUT THE TITLE OF YOUR WINDOW HERE!"
$hwnd = WinGetHandle($Title)
MsgBox (0,"",$hwnd)

While 1
Sleep (100)
WEnd

Func Go()
Local $MousePos = _WinAPI_GetMousePos(True, $hWnd)
$x = DllStructGetData($MousePos, "X")
$y = DllStructGetData($MousePos, "Y")
;~ $x = if you want to set them manual
;~ $y = use this and comment out both DLLStructGetData
$Color = GetColor($x, $y, $hwnd)
MsgBox(0,"","x: " &$x& " y: " &$y& " Color: " &$Color)
EndFunc

Func _Exit()
   Exit
EndFunc

Func GetColor($iX,$iY,$WinHandle)

    _GDIPlus_Startup()

    Local $aPos = WinGetPos($WinHandle)
    $iWidth = $aPos[2]
    $iHeight = $aPos[3]
    Local $hDDC = _WinAPI_GetDC($WinHandle)
    Local $hCDC = _WinAPI_CreateCompatibleDC($hDDC)

    $hBMP = _WinAPI_CreateCompatibleBitmap($hDDC, $iWidth, $iHeight)


    _WinAPI_SelectObject($hCDC, $hBMP)
    DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "PrintWindow", "hwnd", $WinHandle, "hwnd", $hCDC, "int", 0)
    _WinAPI_BitBlt($hCDC, 0, 0, $iWidth, $iHeight, $hDDC, 0, 0, $__SCREENCAPTURECONSTANT_SRCCOPY)


     $BMP = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hBMP)
     Local $aPixelColor = _GDIPlus_BitmapGetPixel($BMP, $iX, $iY)

    _WinAPI_ReleaseDC($WinHandle, $hDDC)
    _WinAPI_DeleteDC($hCDC)
    _WinAPI_DeleteObject($hBMP)
   _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($BMP)
    _GDIPlus_Shutdown()

    Return Hex($aPixelColor, 6)
EndFunc   ;==>GetColor




I hope  I was able to help somebody on the long run :)
If you have any improvements or found any mistake, please let me know and I will try to improve the function as soon as possible.

Also please excuse my "not so clean" coding, I am still learning ;)


Have fun,
KryTonX
 

EDIT: Thanks at JohnOne for his improvements on the Script, I have added WinGetPos...I wonder why I never got that Idea :D

Appears to do what it says on the tin.

;#RequireAdmin
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

$scite = WinGetHandle("[ACTIVE]")
$gui = GUICreate("gui", 1000, 500)
GUISetBkColor(0x112233)
GUISetState()
WinActivate($scite)
Sleep(500)
$hwnd = WinGetHandle("gui")
MsgBox(0, 0, GetColor(100, 100, $hwnd))


Func GetColor($iX, $iY, $WinHandle)

    Local $aPos = WinGetPos($WinHandle)
    $iWidth = $aPos[2]
    $iHeight = $aPos[3]

    _GDIPlus_Startup()

    Local $hDDC = _WinAPI_GetDC($WinHandle)
    Local $hCDC = _WinAPI_CreateCompatibleDC($hDDC)

    $hBMP = _WinAPI_CreateCompatibleBitmap($hDDC, $iWidth, $iHeight)

    _WinAPI_SelectObject($hCDC, $hBMP)
    DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "PrintWindow", "hwnd", $WinHandle, "hwnd", $hCDC, "int", 0)
    _WinAPI_BitBlt($hCDC, 0, 0, $iWidth, $iHeight, $hDDC, 0, 0, $__SCREENCAPTURECONSTANT_SRCCOPY)

    $BMP = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hBMP)
    Local $aPixelColor = _GDIPlus_BitmapGetPixel($BMP, $iX, $iY)

    _WinAPI_ReleaseDC($WinHandle, $hDDC)
    _WinAPI_DeleteDC($hCDC)
    _WinAPI_DeleteObject($hBMP)
    _GDIPlus_ImageDispose($BMP)

    Return Hex($aPixelColor, 6)
EndFunc   ;==>GetColor

Note: altered func params and does not require admin.

Thanks for your little improvement :)

I have added the change.

For me, somehow, it still doesn't give back the right ColorValue without Admin rights -_- I will let it in for now, if some people can confirm that it works without I will put it out!

 

Thanks for your help :)

Perhaps the window you are looking at is admin window, and that requires admin rights.

Anyway, might be prudent to shut down _GDIPlus_Startup().

Added :)

You are probably right with the Admin rights,

Fixed it in the code!

      Hi all,
      I'm developing a tool for exploratively testing another software. For that I wanna cover all the GUI functionality from that software and verify everything works as intended. But now I've a problem which I couldnt solve so far.
      One thing that software I'm testing does, is to load up either a single picture or a series of pictures. Depending on how much pictures got loaded, further actions will be proceeded...
      This loaded pictures are schon within a ToolbarWindow and they're clickable. What I need to know is, how much pictures are in this ToolbarWindow...
      Can anybody provide me a tip on how to achive this?
      Would be amazing!!
      BR,
      Mic

      Am trying to automate injecting credential on the login form for all kind of Web application for IE. I know how to identify the form name by viewing the source code and using the method - _IEFormGetObjByName($ie, $form_Name).
      I would like to know how to identify or get the form object for the web app where there is no form name tag for example below, for the is I have used - _IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0) to get the form object.
      My Question is does it work for all kind of application "_IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0)" how to identify Index value? is it always 0? is there any better solution?
      The final solution am looking for is find out form object, get the username, password field and inject credential and submit the form.
      How to find out index value? for the forms which does not have form name field.
      $login_form = _IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0) $email_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_UserName) $pass_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_password) $login_button = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_submitbutton) _IEFormElementSetValue($email_field, $CmdLine[2]) _IEFormElementSetValue($pass_field, $CmdLine[3]) ControlSend($hwnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]","{Enter}") OR This works fine if the form has form name. $login_form = _IEFormGetObjByName($ie, $form_Name) $email_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_UserName) $pass_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_password) $login_button = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_submitbutton) _IEFormElementSetValue($email_field, $CmdLine[2]) _IEFormElementSetValue($pass_field, $CmdLine[3]) ControlSend($hwnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]","{Enter}")

      Hello guys!
      I have a problem with a script, in the past I made a program and it worked perfect, I recently used it again and it already stands still in one step, the problem is a Javascript event that changed but now I cannot execute it.
       
      <td colspan="2" align="center"><input type="button" id="Buscar" name="Buscar" value="Buscar" onclick="javascript:enviarForma(document.obtenercasosPersonaPorDocumento,'0');" class="boton"></td>  
      Previously I used this code and it worked, but now it does nothing
      $botonconsulta = _IEGetObjByName($oIE,"Buscar") _IEAction($botonconsulta, 'click') _IELoadWait($oIE)  
      Now I have tried the following codes but none works.
       
      ;==================== 1 _IEHeadInsertEventScript($oIE, "document", "onclick", "javascript:enviarForma(document.obtenercasosPersonaPorDocumento,'0');") ControlClick("SUPER CELAC", "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]") _IELoadWait($oIE) ;==================== 2 $forma = $oIE.document.obtenercasosPersonaPorDocumento $oIE.Navigate("JavaScript:enviarForma("&$forma&",""0"");") _IELoadWait($oIE) ;==================== 3 $boton = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "Buscar") $boton.document.parentwindow.execScript("enviarForma(document.obtenercasosPersonaPorDocumento,'0');", "javascript") I hope you can guide me, because I think the error is in the parameters that the javascript function receives but I don't know how to send it, here I leave the first part of the JavaScript function.
      function enviarForma(frm,tipoForma){ var bExisteDatoConsulta = false; var bError=true; var mensajeError=""; switch (tipoForma) { //--Forma documento case "0": if (validar_campo_no_vacio_no_print(frm.numeroDocumento)) { if (!isNum(frm.numeroDocumento.value)) { bError = false; mensajeError += "El número de documento debe ser un valor numérico\n"; } bExisteDatoConsulta = true; } else { mensajeError += "Debe digitar un número de documento\n"; } break;  Thanks!
