Add image to GUI and tell me what kind of an animal.

Recommended Posts


My image has a lot of small pictures with different kinds of animals.

My idea is, when you press each pictures a messagebox should apear with the word of what kind of animal.

How do I add an image to a GUI and how do I control the mouse to tell me what kind of picture I pressed?

Yours sincerely

Hmmm need more information, what have you tried? Is it one image file with different animals in it?

If it's one image you can use GUICtrlCreatePic and load your image, define the areas of each animal yourself (x, y, width, height of the animal, I'd suggest an array), and when the user clicks the picture, grab the x, y coordinates of the click. Go through the array and use _WinApi_PtinRectEx to test if the click was in the area for each animal. Alternatively you can just create labels where each animal are and set an OnEvent for each label (Or a case for each label, depending on if you use GUIOnEvent mode or not). Whenever the user clicks the picture they'll click the underlying label and activate what you want to do.

I'd use the images as if they were buttons, and do something like this.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>


Func Example()
    GUICreate("My Draw")
    Local $idTech = GUICtrlCreatePic("\AutoIt3\Examples\Helpfile\Extras\Tech.bmp", 10, 10, 100, 100) ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<  Change this to the path that your AutoIt installation is in.
    Local $idAutoIt = GUICtrlCreatePic("\AutoIt3\Examples\Helpfile\Extras\AutoIt.bmp", 120, 10, 100, 100) ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<  Change this to the path that your AutoIt installation is in.

        $idMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $idMsg
            Case $idTech
                MsgBox($mb_systemmodal, "Clicked", "Tech clicked")
            Case $idAutoIt
                MsgBox($mb_systemmodal, "Clicked", "AutoIt clicked")
    Until $idMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
EndFunc   ;==>Example

I don't have much, as I don't know how to start.

But yes, it is just one image with different animals in it.

Yours sincerely

I was bored.... This would be one way to do it, you probably don't have to get as detailed as I did to outline the animals with labels (take out the for $i = $lblPikachu loop to see where all the labels are).  This won't work on all computers, my desktop resolution is 1920x1080, some may have larger or smaller resolutions.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $hWndGui = GUICreate("Example", @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, 0, 0, $WS_POPUP)

      My color of pixel exists more than one place.
      How can I control the position so I find the exact position before I continue in my code?

      Hi dear
      With this script you can print Unicode text in the CMD screen
      the script is  easy to use
      just you  write the text that contains Unicode in the first input
      and the script automatically reflect the code in the second input
       you can copy the text to the clipboard
      or you can try printing the text in the CMD window
      I apologize to everyone for colors and shape if not appropriate
      I'm a blind man and I do not see
      Thank you for your understanding

      Hello all, i have about 20 arrays in my script and i need to delete the first element of each, i have the name of the arrays in another array (its used in another part of the script)  and i tried to passing the names to from that array to the _ArrayDelete function but nothing happens and i get an error code :1 which state that i'm trying to delete an array which is not an array
      code example
      #include <Array.au3> global $allarrays[3] = ['array1','array2','array3'] global $array1[3] = ['1', '2', '3'] global $array2[3] = ['1', '2', '3'] global $array3[3] = ['1', '2', '3'] for $i = 0 to UBound($allarrays) - 1 _ArrayDelete($allarrays[$i], 0) Next _ArrayDisplay($array1) obviously i can just use  _arraydelete over and over however i'm looking for a more elegant way of doing this

      I am trying to use the ControlClick in a "save as"-window to select the path of where to save the document.
      I found out that when in press the icon in front of the path, i select the path. So I am trying to press that button (i have attached a print screen of this window).
      While trying to figure out how i had to use the ControlClick, it said somewhere that i could us Au3Info to find out what title,... i should use with the ControlClick.
      The result of the Au3Info I have attached aswel.
      The ControlClick that i tried are these: (and none of these even move the mouse)
      ControlClick("[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:4]", "", "", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      ControlClick("[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:4]", "", "1001", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      ControlClick("[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32]", "", "", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      ControlClick("Save project as", "", "", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      I don't know what I am doing wrong.
      Should I use a controlID? is my windowtitle wrong?
      Can anyone help me?
      Thanks in advance,
