4:3 window in a resizable window - conversion formula

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a simple click function. The client is resizable(though often widescreen), while the actual clickable area is fullscreen(4:3). I want to make mouseclicks able to be done in %, but I can't figure out a formula to allow the window to be any size while still being able to achieve successful clicks in the locations I need

I currently have something like this


$Title = WinGetHandle("Untitled")

Dim $Size = WinGetClientSize($Title)
Dim $Pos = WinGetPos($Title)
$Pos[1] = $Pos[1] + 25

Dim $Offset = ($Size[0] - (($Size[1]-25)*(4/3)))/2
$Size[0] = $Size[0]-($Offset*2)
MsgBox(1,"asd",$Offset & " || " & $Size[0] & " || " & $Size[1] & " || " & $Pos[0] & " || " & $Pos[1])

MouseClick("Left", $Pos[0]+$Offset+(0.70*$Size[0]), $Pos[1]+(0.17*$Size[1]))

Offset being the empty white bar you'd get on each side, I attempted to add the offset to the relative X position of the window, to get the start of the playable area for horizontal. Relative Y position, +25 for titlebar, for Y. 

The code I have here is pretty close but it doesn't quite do it. It ends up being a dozen pixels off or so when i start stretching it a good chunk. I need it to be pretty precise(not necessarily perfect) as I want to use some pixelsearch and whatnot as well, but a couple dozen pixels is too much. The border window of the window is causing some issues in the formula, but I don't want to remove it if possible.

I would like help in refining or remaking this formula to function more accurately.

It doesn't really matter what program. Any program that has a fixed aspect ratio inside a re-sizable window. I wanted it to work for something like a media player originally but I want it to be versatile for other applications as well, so I don't want to use controlclick.

I don't think this is going to help me. I want the formula I explained to work as intended. And I don't need controls, as I already said before.

I need to compare a wide variety of players across various systems, and I am using the formula to coordinate exact pixel locations so I can use pixelscans. I would like to compare the visual quality of compressions and different versions of videos and things of that nature. I would also like to use the same formula for hopefully other applications in the future.

All I need is the formula refined.

Can you do it or not?

Mostly are better solutions possibele than a MouseClick.

and the UDF's i linked iare the best possible usable solutions for a media player automation. I must repeat me:

The way you trie to automatize is veeery dirty, for better way name the app or upgrade your math skills.

i am out or fhis thread. Have luck by finding a solution.

I already told you what apps I wanted it for, media players.

Yes, but you were lying.

I already told you those UDFs don't help. They do not provide a universal solution to my issue.

That is because they are just a response to your reformulated question, which was not to your actual question as stated in the original unedited version of your opening post ;) 

Roses are FF0000, violets are 0000FF... All my base are belong to you.

So what's the worst my "lying" code is for? hacking the nsa?

Nothing bad, just some game. (I happened to read that opening post before you edited it :) ) Now, I don't care about automating games, but this forum does for some reason (/edit: well, cares about discussing it at least), so I and many others just don't respond to these questions and let the mods deal with it.

What I personally do care about is people repeatedly lying about their intentions to mislead people into giving you what you want for free. In my book, that's worse than just breaking some subject matter rule on some forum. So when I see that happen I call it out. That's all.

Have a good day.

Yes, I originally wrote game because I thought it would require less to explain than saying I wanted it for a media player. People ask so many questions for something so simple.

Either way, I don't care if you believe that it's really for a game or really for a media player. I have no reputation to protect, and I don't need anything now.
