I'm absolutely new to FreeBasic, so there might be much better approches! 

May be new to FreeBasic but you learn quickly !

Nice work UEZ ! ;)

Thanks wakillon.

 

FreeBasic has similar syntax as AutoIt. So it's not very hard to learn the "basics".

 

Btw, since some days I'm writing a DLL for image filter effects (SymmetricNearestNeighbour, Jitter, Median, Kuwahara, Convolution, etc.) which I will release soon.

Wow, a big job ahead ! :sweating:

Yesterday i was looking again to Anisotropic Kuwahara Filtering by kyprianidis 

I am really looking forward to try your dll ! :hyper:

@UEZ ,

Did you use any step by step tutorals or any books. I have installed FB but i didn't even started learning.

Only a small tutorial written by eukalyptus how to create a DLL using FB. It's in German only.

Hi GDI King :thumbsup:

When i compile Plasma Variante 5 with FB Editor i get a warning : 

warning 1(1): Passing different pointer types, at parameter 2 of GDIPCREATESOLIDFILL()

So, why use @hBrush instead of hBrush ? :huh2:

Edit : i use FbEdit FreeBASIC code editor v 1.0.6.8 (Last Update: 2016-03-19)

These are warnings only. Currently I'm not able to answer what to do to get rid of these warnings.

As far as I understood the @ char is the address in the memory.

@UEZ: very interesting line of development.  Thanks for posting.  If and when you add any other examples, a "latest and greatest" ZIP of everything together would be much appreciated.

      AutoIt Windows Screenshooter
      Key Features:
      takes easily a screenshot from any visible window capture any region of the desktop incl. freehand capturing capture GUI controls and GUI menus separately capture a marked area every x seconds for a duration of y seconds create a GIF animation from saved frames (Vista or higher os required) capture to AVI file (without audio!) takes a screenshot from web sites (available only on Win7+ os and when Aero is enabled) put images to clipboard to paste to other applications easily color picker save image in different formats and also to PDF! add timestamp to saved images simple image editing options: greyscale, b&w, invert, rotate +-90° send image to printer and default email client preview of captured screens incl. zoom option multi monitor support display pixel color under mouse ruler basic image editor (paint, highlight, ellipse, rectangle, text and some graphic FX) watermark captured image no 3rd party tools or DLLs used - pure AutoIt! fully portable - no installation is needed multi language feature (Eng, Ger, Tur, Fra and Rus only) To do:
      capture content of scrollable window/control capture cascaded menus Due to DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "PrintWindow", "hwnd", $hWnd, "handle", $hMemDC, "int", 0) limitation some windows cannot be captured properly (GDI+, ProgDVB, etc.) but can take screenshots of hidden windows. One workaround is to use full screen capturing (F11/F12) or "Grab Screen" function! Or try double click with rmb on listview items (beta).

      User your mouse to scroll preview window or
      Numpad 8: Scroll preview window up
      Numpad 2: Scroll preview window down
      Numpad 4: Scroll preview window left
      Numpad 6: Scroll preview window right
      Numpad +: zoom in preview window or mouse wheel down
      Numpad -: zoom out preview window or mouse wheel up
      F1: capture again on last position
      F5: refresh Windows Name list
      PRINTSCREEN: take screenshot from whole screen
      ALT+PRINTSCR: take a screenshot from active window
      F10: Undo made changes with Image Editing function
      F11: take screenshot from whole screen incl mouse cursor
      F12: take screenshot from whole screen
      Ctrl+Alt+F9 start "Grab Screen" mode
      Ctrl+Alt+F12: take a screenshot from active window using alternative screenshot functionality (beta)!
      Ctrl+r: call ruler
      Ctrl+s: save current displayed image
      Ctrl+x: exit program
      ctrl+w: call web grab input field (available only when Aero is enabled)
      Ctrl+i: call image editor
      Ctrl+m: call watermark editor
      Ctrl+z: undo
      Only available on Vista+ os: double click with rmb on list items to use alternative screenshot functionality (beta)!
      When 'Grab Screen' is clicked you can hold down the ctrl key to switch to 'grab controls' mode. Control under mouse will be framed red.
      ctrl + shift will take the screenshot of appropriate control. To capture GUI menus you can press rmb which simulates the lmb. When a menu is opened press shift additionally to capture it.
      Press and hold only the shift key to capture any region on the desktop using freehand capturing - release it so capture marked regions!
      Or just mark resize able area which you want to grab. Press CTRL key to grab marked area or right mouse button to capture the marked area every x seconds for a duration of y seconds.
      When saving the image just enter the extension you wish to use (*.jpg;*.png;*.bmp;*.gif;*.tif;*.pdf). Big thanks to taietel for his PDF UDF!

      Just press the lmb and move your mouse. When lmb is released you can adjust the size of the window by dragging the white rectangle to any direction. Rmb will move the marked area.
      Press ESC to get the coordinates of the marked region.
      If you have any improvements, please post it here.
       
      Tested on Win10 x64 only.

      Hey, All!
       
      I was looking into the help file at all the drawing utilities and I was wondering if you draw a translucent line that follows your cursor. Upon looking for ideas I came across this thread (1.0) and saw UEZ's response. I also came across another post that UEZ replied to and found this reply (1.1) where he shows how you can draw on the desktop. This is what I'm looking for however I'd still like to be able to interact with a designated application and have the line/curve/vector passively follow it. Obviously we don't move our cursor very linearly so it would have to be able to draw on vectors. Am I over complicating this? 
      Any ideas or starting points I should look more into?

      Hello,
      I am making a program where the button is an image that "changes" when specific conditions are fullfilled. Problem is that these images have different dimensions and when a smaller picture is displayed over a bigger one both will be seen, therefore i would like the images to be hidden, invincible or, alternatively, deleted.
      I have tried using _GDIPlus_GraphicsClear() with no luck
      However that might just be me not using it right as im quite new to autoit
      Here is the code if you want to test run it:
      Thanks to everyone helping!
