I am busy with building a solution for change monitoring of VOIP call program and to be properly automated means among others need for some limited OCR functionality. Current works of others are way too much overkill for this case what makes the need to build it myself. But to do it properly I significantly have to increase my knowledge about digital graphics management.
For now I already have discovered here and there some mind blowing Autoit miracles what can be achieved with Windows own possibilities to manipulate that what is output to the monitor. And as far I can judge there are 2 options to process graphics without use of any external libraries like ImageMagick, FreeImage and so on. These are:
WinAPI GDIPlus It is for me quite obvious to have various holes in general understanding of graphics and it is once more very clear what advantages gives consistent general study in 1 or another official institutions like University. Cause there you are introduced into certain domain of knowledge in a way which usually has been perfected over long period of time. So you are not overloaded by stuff which requires a certain amount of information to be initially clear for you. For example, before starting to solve physics you first learn to read, count and so on and then move to subjects like physics.
Though in my case opportunity to study in such educational system I had only for 8 years, from my 7th to 15th year of age in the country that was falling apart now Ukraine but used to be USSR, was all what it was. After have immigrated to Netherlands possibilities to study further haven't occur. And this therefor causes often various implications when going deep in that or another field of practical knowledge acquiring for any needed physical result, like programming to perform enormous amount of tasks. In this particular case automating VOIP call program.
Anyway, right now I think the best direction to move is to concentrate on as basic as possible image management and if someone would maybe explain in general what is a pixel will definitely help. Particularly I am very curious about how to do picture manipulations in Autoit. Especially would help a lot to produce eventually following functions:
createImage($imageFileName, $width, $height, $color) readImagePixel($imageFileName, $x, $y) writeImagePixel($imageFileName, $x, $y) I do not know exactly how image is handled in computer but preferably above mentioned functions should deal with so far possible origin of graphics creation on computer. But nevertheless I definitely would love to hear any proposition for solution.
The problem with explaining screenshots:
VOIPConnect full Window Part of Window with control to monitor for changes Exact location of area where actual changes occur and have to be processed It comes down to a rectangle of approximately 51 pixel wide and 7 pixel high. In fact if I get to learn as far as to be able exactly read, write and compare 2 images consistently across different computers I could narrow down then even further the area to watch as little as a square of 2-5 pixels wide.
To finish here is last detail about particularly no need for ultra fast solution at all. This because it is needed only once when it is first run on a new computer and to have to wait few minutes while it is being set instead of just a few seconds make no sence.
This is it and what I too think to do beside this very particular case is to purify out beautiful generic Autoit functions for core image manipulation by using WinAPI or/and GDIPlus.
May be some of you know Songr .
This script do the same job, it can find more mp3 files but is not as fast as Songr.
Sites used are music search engine Websites designed for LEGAL entertainment purposes only.
Thanks to Brett Francis, Prog@ndy and Eukalyptus for >Bass Udf, trancex for >WinHttp Udf and the AutoIt Community for his help.
Changes of v22.214.171.124
Three websites replaced cause they are dead or use now js.
All search engines updated ( not without difficulties for audiodump)
I use RAGrid.dll for the first listview (more fast and stable, but with some inconvenients to manage the no-edit of cells)
Input queries are saved ( the twenty latest)
I use now an mp3 pre-Load management before playing and a double progressbar for visualize pre-load and play, where you can click for directly go play in the loaded part.
Most includes needed are embedded and all external files are embedded in script with >BinaryToAu3Kompressor .
Multi downloads available with embedded downloader.exe
Changes of v126.96.36.199
Search on audiodump and myfreemp3 fixed.
Added Gui Menu.
Titles are no more editable.
New "About" with >TaskDialog (Thanks Prog@andy)
Query button permit now to check / uncheck all checkboxes
And some few fixes and cleaning.
Really more stable now.
Changes of v188.8.131.52
Dilandau is replaced by mp3chief and mp3ili by mp3clan
Search on mp3juices, baseofmp3 and soundcloud fixed.
Soso now provide m4a (aac) instead of mp3 ( m4a can be played by MSE)
Added possibility to encode automaticaly to mp3, aac or ogg ( at the end of download) using bassenc.dll and command line tools : lame, faac and oggenc.
Changes of v184.108.40.206 mp3skull fixed mp3chief fixed myfreemp3 fixed mp3clan changed to tusmp3 mp3juices changed to emp3world baseofmp3 changed to imp3 and some minor improvements.
Most previous websites used are dead or have changed the way to get links,
so instead of try to repair the previous version, i have created a complete new version.
The main tendency is the simplification :
Only one website : audiodump (Up to 500 results by request)
Script use now the little pearl created by Ward : curl.au3
It permit to create tasks (get source and get multi mp3) in asynchronous mode.
So now, no need to use several executables and no more gui who do not respond in case of connection problems.
Script use Bass.dll X86 loaded in memory for play songs.
Result is light and fast, but don't abuse of audiodump servers who are not beasts of race.
Warning : For avoid errors with curl.au3, you'll need to comment the line 63 : ;~ #Include <BinaryCall.au3>
@AutoItX64 not supported and only tested on Win7X64 and Win8.1X64.
As your browser, use Ctrl+w for remove the current Tab.(if there is no search or download running from it)
And also Ctrl+q for set/remove Gridlines.
Events are displayed to the bottom of the Gui.
Added a Paste Button.
Querry list is now correctly saved.
Querry Combo is now sorted in alphabetical order
After a 'No match', the next search will use the previous empty listview.
Bug when removing tabs is corrected.
Added string correction for the request that, in the previous version, was not always able to return a correct result.
A big thanks to Ward for his great UDF, and Nina my favorite tester, (who between us is also my third daughter), for his precious advices .
previous downloads : 1703
As there is no more script downloads count, source and executable are available in the downloads section
July 2017 Project Discontinued due to website changes
Func dg_get_images() $x1=0 $y1=0 ;MsgBox(0,"start","start") do $result = _ImageSearch("C:\Users\Server\Desktop\my project\image.png",1,$x1,$y1,0) until $result = 1; if $result=1 Then MouseMove($x1,$y1,3) MouseClick("left", $x1,$y1, 1) WinWait("[Title:TightVNC File Transfer]", "", 10) EndIf this code works when i search the image, but when i change the location of the desktop icon it can't find the desktop icon anymore. i wanna try image search area. but i don't know how to use it because i cant understand the parameter for the image search area. please help me how to solve it thank you in advance.
Hi Autoit Community,
do someone know, if is possible to creat an 3D-ModelSearch script ?
I've thousands of URLs to check them these are safe, malware infected or any other type of error, that's why I searched and found Google Safe browsing API with this we can send HTTP GET request so different code will return to make us clear is it our sent URL is safe or not. Please guide me how can i make this possible I know basics of Auotit but don't know how to use this API to fulfill above mentioned purpose. Your help will be much appreciated. Thanks
Here is API URL;
