Need help with with basic script (new to autoIt)

20 posts in this topic

First off, Hello everyone I'm new to AutoIt and the forums here. 

So.. I want to automatically click if the color of the pixel is equal to $color1

But I just can't get it to work so anyone who could give me a solution with explanation would be perfect!

Here is my code and thanks in advance!

 

HotKeySet("{F4}", "MyExit")

$pos = MouseGetPos()
Global $color1 = 0xDEDEDE
Global $color2 = PixelGetColor

While(1)


$posx = random(4,1915)
$posy = random(184,1014)

    MouseMove( $posx, $posy)
    sleep(1000)

    PixelGetColor($pos[0], $pos[1])

    if $color1 == $color2 Then


    MouseClick("Left")

    sleep(200)

    Else

    sleep(100)

    EndIf


    WEnd

func MyExit()
    Exit
    EndFunc

@Dariorio it is a little difficult to troubleshoot if we can't see what you're trying to click on. Are you getting an error of some sort, or does AutoIt just not find the color? What are you trying to accomplish with the mouseclick? Is it something you can use ControlClick for (generally much much easier)?

Alright yeah my bad. I'm trying to randomise my mouse movement and when it hits a certain color I want it to click. I don't get any errors what so ever, but when my mouse jumps on the color (As it should) the script doesn't click.. And I can't figure out why excactly. I'm trying to click on a regular checkmark  button by the way. Thanks for the fast reply also! I hope this is enough information

I guess I am not understanding what you're after, if you're trying to click a "checkmark button" why do you want to "randomise" it? Is this a GUI application (if so, which?) or is it in a webpage (URL would be helpful)?

Well It's not really important what I want to click on because I'm just experimenting with AutoIt since I'm new to the program. The point is that I can't figure out how to automatically click on a color when the mouse hovers over it. Really hope someone could help me.

It is really important, as otherwise you are asking us to first guess at what you're trying to do and then troubleshoot for you. The more information you provide, the more likely you will be to get the assistance you're after. Not everyone is going to spend the time to pull teeth in order to get basic info so they can help ;)

Okay so, I have an other topic running but wasn't providing enough information so I hope if I start this topic with all the information provided that I will get help. So I have no "GOAL". I'm just experimenting with AutoIt. But I got stuck, I wanted to move the mouse every 1 second to a different spot in a specified area on the screen and if the mouse moved to a specific color it would click. But the problem now is, it isn't working and I dont know why. I use this site for testing my script: http://mrdoob.com/#/106/checkbox_painter . So.. When my mouse jumps on a checkmark it should click but it doesn't and I hope you guys can help me! Thanks in advance. This is the script I got for now: 

HotKeySet("{F4}", "MyExit")


$pos = MouseGetPos()
Global $color1 = 0xDEDEDE
Global $color2 = PixelGetColor

While(1)


$posx = random(4,1915)
$posy = random(184,1014)

    MouseMove( $posx, $posy)
    sleep(1000)

    PixelGetColor($pos[0], $pos[1])

    if $color1 == $color2 Then


    MouseClick("Left")

    sleep(200)

    Else

    sleep(100)

    EndIf


    WEnd

func MyExit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Dariorio,

So please stick with it.

P.S. When you post code please use Code tags - see here how to do it.  Then you get a scrolling box and syntax colouring as you can see above now I have added the tags.

I wasn't able to visit your website due to our web filters at work, but I did notice a couple of issues with your code.  Try the changes below and see if it works better for you:

HotKeySet("{F4}", "MyExit")


$pos = MouseGetPos()
Global $color1 = 0xDEDEDE
Global $color2 = PixelGetColor ; Not correct syntax and color needs to be grabbed after each mouse movment

While(1)

    $posx = random(4,1915)
    $posy = random(184,1014)

    MouseMove( $posx, $posy)
    sleep(1000)

    $pos = MouseGetPos() ; You weren't updating your mouse pos after the mouse was moved
    $color2 = PixelGetColor($pos[0], $pos[1]) 

    If $color1 == $color2 Then ; You weren't valuing $color2 properly before the While
        Msgbox(0,"Got it", "Thats my color") ; added to help troublehsoot

        MouseClick("Left")

        sleep(200)

    Else

        sleep(100)

    EndIf

WEnd

func MyExit()
    Exit
EndFunc

HotKeySet("{F4}", "MyExit")


$pos = MouseGetPos()
Global $color1 = 0x0xDEDEDE
Global $color2 = PixelGetColor ; Not correct syntax and color needs to be grabbed after each mouse movment

While(1)

    $posx = random(4,1915)
    $posy = random(184,1014)

    EndIf

WEnd

func MyExit()
    Exit
EndFunc

 

First, I want to thank you, there is only one little problem left. You put the "0x" in front of the color so the program recognises it as a color. Now when I try and run the script it gives an error: "error: syntax error". Just don't know how to fix that so yea :$

Oops, sorry, I tried another color and left an extra "0x" in there when I put yours back.  Remove that and try it again...

Dariorio,

Just remove the first "0x" so that it reads as before.

And when you reply, please use the "Reply to this topic" button at the top of the thread or the "Reply to this topic" editor at the bottom rather than the "Quote" button - responders know what they wrote and it just pads the thread unnecessarily.

Okay so that is very strange, it works perfectly with that site and that color. But not with the site I use.. Maybe it's a very strange color ?? That's my theory. Thanks so much for helping :)

@Dariorio , sometimes the colors in images can fluctuate a lot, but we really can't tell the difference.  The PixelSearch function will search a range and see if some variation of that color is there.  I have not used it before, but had a little time to kill while I sat on a conference call.  Try the code below on your original test page and see what happens.  If you still have issues, try bumping the last parameter of the pixelsearch up a little and try again.  The help file will tell you more about how the shade variation works in PixelSearch.

 

HotKeySet("{F4}", "MyExit")

$pos = MouseGetPos()
Global $color1 = "0xDEDEDE"

While(1)

    $posx = random(4,1915)
    $posy = random(184,1014)

    MouseMove($posx, $posy)
    sleep(1000)

    $pos = MouseGetPos()
    $color2 = PixelGetColor($pos[0], $pos[1])

    $PixRange = PixelSearch($pos[0],$pos[1],$pos[0],$pos[1], $color1, 5) ; 5 is the shade variation setting (can be 0-255)
    If IsArray($PixRange) Then ;If pixel color is within the range of variable $color1, an array will be created
        Msgbox(0,"Got it", "Thats very close to my color") ; added to help test/troublehsoot
        MouseClick("left")
        Sleep(200)

    Else

        Sleep(100)

    EndIf

WEnd

func MyExit()
    Exit
EndFunc
