Need GDI graphics cleared after BitmapSetPixel()

Recommended Posts


I'm really new to working with the GDI API. What I want my script to do is:

  1. get a screenshot of a 100x100 region
  2. go through a list of captured colors in this region
  3. highlight them in red
  4. prompt if I want to continue to another captured color
    1. somehow make the red parts of the region go back to normal/reset/clear/revert to original screenshot
    2. Repeat Steps 2 to 4

Here's my work on how far I got:

#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Global $g_hGUI, $g_hGfxCtxt, $g_hBitmap, $g_hBMP, $g_hGraphics
HotKeySet('{F1}', 'Example')

While 1

Func Example()
    AutoItSetOption("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
    Opt("MouseCoordMode", 0)

    Local $iW = 50, $iH = 50
    Local Const $iWidth = $iW * 2, $iHeight = $iH * 2, $iBgColor = 0x303030 ;$iBGColor format RRGGBB

    ;   create a GDI bitmap by capturing a confined region with the mouse cursor as the center
    $myMouseCoords = MouseGetPos()
    Local $hHBmp = _ScreenCapture_Capture("", $myMouseCoords[0] - $iW, $myMouseCoords[1] - $iH, $myMouseCoords[0] + $iW, $myMouseCoords[1] + $iH, False)

    _GDIPlus_Startup() ;initialize GDI+

    ;   create a GUI with the dimensions fitting the captured region for previewing screenshot
    $g_hGUI = GUICreate("GDI+ Example (" & @ScriptName & ")", $iWidth, $iHeight)
    GUISetBkColor($iBgColor, $g_hGUI) ;set GUI background color

    #Region     GDI+ setup
    $g_hGraphics = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($g_hGUI) ;create a graphics object from a window handle
    $g_hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromGraphics($iWidth, $iHeight, $g_hGraphics) ;   Scaling: Magnify the captured screen by /2, zoom out by *2
    $g_hGfxCtxt = _GDIPlus_ImageGetGraphicsContext($g_hBitmap)
    $g_hBMP = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hHBmp) ;convert GDI to GDI+ bitmap
    _WinAPI_DeleteObject($hHBmp) ;release GDI bitmap resource because not needed anymore
    Local $iX = 0.0, $iY = 0.0 ;define start coordinate
    #EndRegion GDI+ setup

    Local $aColorCoords[$iHeight * $iWidth][2], $pixelCounter
    For $iRow = 0 To $iHeight - 1
        For $iCol = 0 To $iWidth - 1
            $iColor = _GDIPlus_BitmapGetPixel($g_hBMP, $iCol, $iRow) ;get current pixel color
            $aColorCoords[$pixelCounter][0] = $iColor
            $aColorCoords[$pixelCounter][1] = $iCol & "," & $iRow
            $pixelCounter += 1

    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Exit")
    $aUniqueColors = _ArrayUnique($aColorCoords, 0, 0, 0, $ARRAYUNIQUE_NOCOUNT) ;   Creates an array of unique colors from the whole capture
    _ArrayColInsert($aUniqueColors, 1)

    #Region     CORE PROBLEM
    For $findUnique = 0 To UBound($aUniqueColors) - 1 ; Find and stores the total of every color captured
        _GDIPlus_GraphicsClear($g_hGfxCtxt, 0xFF000000 + $iBgColor) ;   clear bitmap for repaint
        $aColorIndexes = _ArrayFindAll($aColorCoords, $aUniqueColors[$findUnique][0])
        $aUniqueColors[$findUnique][1] = UBound($aColorIndexes)
        $totalQueries = UBound($aUniqueColors)
        For $getIndex = 0 To UBound($aColorIndexes) - 1
            $sThisCoordSet = $aColorCoords[$aColorIndexes[$getIndex]][1]
            $iCommaPosition = StringInStr($sThisCoordSet, ',')
            $iColorCoordX = StringMid($sThisCoordSet, 1, $iCommaPosition - 1) ; The index yields a string of the coords; they need to be parsed to integers
            $iColorCoordY = StringMid($sThisCoordSet, $iCommaPosition + 1) ;    +1 ignores the comma
            p('$iColorCoordX', $iColorCoordX)
            p('$iColorCoordY', $iColorCoordY)
            _GDIPlus_BitmapSetPixel($g_hBMP, $iColorCoordX, $iColorCoordY, 0xFFFF0000)
        _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImage($g_hGfxCtxt, $g_hBMP, $iX, $iY) ;    draw bitmap to backbuffer
        _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImageRect($g_hGraphics, $g_hBitmap, 0, 0, $iWidth, $iHeight) ;copy drawn bitmap to graphics handle (GUI)
    #EndRegion CORE PROBLEM
EndFunc   ;==>Example

Func _Exit()
    ;cleanup GDI+ resources
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

_GDIPLUS_GraphicsClear() doesn't work. I tried it on $g_hGraphics, $g_hBitmap, $g_hGfxCtxt, and $g_hBMP which are my graphics objects located in #Region GDI+ setup. My usage is under the #Region CORE PROBLEM. I wonder what I'm misunderstanding here.
