Search for 2. color and move mouse to location.

8 posts in this topic

Greetings everyone!

I have been trying to create a program that is searching for a specific color, the first color will the the "center object"

I have created the following:

$centerColor = PixelSearch(190,182,1813,984,0x11c1A1)
$color2 = l0x5E480F

if IsArray($centerColor) = True Then
   MouseMove($centerColor[0],$checkdog[1])
   Sleep(250)
    ;Moving 50 pixels down and search for the 2. color
   PixelSearch($centerColor[0],$centerColor[1]+50, l0x5E480F)
   MouseMove($color2[0],$color2[1])

   EndIf

The program manages to find the center color with no problems, but I really don't know how to do a "new search" , without writing the specific coordinates in the color2 variable.

Thank you very much for taking your time reading this.

Welcome to AutoIt and the Forum!

The parameters for the 2nd Pixelsearch are wrong. You only specify left and top but miss right and bottom.

Can you please tell us which program you try to automate? Most of the time there are more reliable ways to do what you want to do :)

Thank you for your reply.

I'm not trying to automate a program, I just wish to practice. I have created a maze of colors on a canvas in paint, and I would like to program the bot to clear it with the cursor. It is checking for "walls" around the center color, which is the start point. :)

So - with the modification I suggested - it is now working as expected?

Oh sorry! I though I replied on that, my bad. I tried what you suggested and got the following code:
 

;Variables
$color2 = 0x5E480F

$centerColor = PixelSearch(190,182,1813,984,0x11c1A1)

if IsArray($centerColor) = True Then
   MouseMove($centerColor[0],$centerColor[1])
   Sleep(250)
   PixelSearch($centerColor[0],$centerColor[1]+50,$centerColor[0],$centerColor[1]+50, $color2)
   MouseMove($color2[0],$color2[1])

   EndIf

But I get the following error:
 

MouseMove($color2[0],$color2[1])
MouseMove($color2^ ERROR

$color2 is the color you're looking for, it's not the return value from the PixelSearch, you don't save the return value from the second pixelsearch so the mousemove isn't going to work.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
