Repeat a set script and pixel search duration

Recommended Posts

I want to do a pixel search but the problem is that this specific pixel im looking for appears and disappears at random. So basically I tried doing search pixel, if true then click, if false then repeat search. I have

   $pix = PixelSearch(672,315,972,508,0x021831,5)
   if IsArray($pix) = true then
      MouseClick("left", $pix[0], $pix[1],1,1)
   EndIf
   if IsArray($pix) = False Then
      $pix = PixelSearch(672,315,972,508,0x0A75B3,1)
      if IsArray($pix) = true then
         MouseClick("left", $pix[0], $pix[1],1,1)
      EndIf
   Endif

 

But it didn't actually stop to repixel search when the pix wasn't found and continued instead to do the next action. 

my theory was that until u find the pixel, keep looking for it.

 

Any help?

Welcom to AutoIt and the forum!

Can you please tell us which program you try to automate? Pixel related functions are not very reliable because they depend on screen resolution and window position.
Most of the time there are more reliable ways to do what you want to do.

Is pixel search like, it will search forever for that pixel? Or can I set a time like: look for 5 seconds. If not, repeat search.

No, you need to call Pixelsearch in a loop.
But again: If you can tell us which program you try to automate we can give much better advice.

BTW: Could you please use code tags when posting code? Means: the "<>" button in the editor. Enhances readability of your code :)
