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

5 posts in this topic

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)

Global $lblPikachu2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 180, 675, 50, 30)
Global $lblSquirtle1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 315, 678, 70, 90)
Global $lblSquirtle2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 385, 735, 28, 25)
GLobal $lblLugia1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 1245, 205, 50, 50)

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.

      I need to open an application and send it keys in Session 0.  I have exe's working locally, I can see the application open in session 0 through interactive services, but my send commands do not go to the application.  The following article running-autoit-session-0, directs me to use ControlSend() however my application has no controls that can be identified by AutoIt v3 Window Info.  Get All Windows Controls also returned nothing for the application's handle.  
      What are my options?  
      Can this be done with AutoIt?
      Is there a different "relatively simple" library/tool to use? (I am familiar with C# if there is a viable library there )

      Hey all,
      Has anyone created any queries for youtube? I was thinking it might be something like this but can't quite figure it out:
      $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() _IENavigate($oIE,"") Local $oForms = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "form") Local $sTxt = "" For $oForm In $oForms If $ = "masthead-search" Then $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input") For $oInput In $oInputs If $ = "masthead-search-term" Then _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "cards") _IEFormSubmit($oForm) EndIf Next EndIf Next

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
