Problems with window info color picker

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

Hello,

I am having problems with the autoit window info color picker. Basically, the color finder is not giving me the correct color. For example, on my desktop I could mouse over a shade of black and the color finder will say its white. I am also having trouble with the pixelsearch() function. It is not able to find the correct colors on my screen. I believe the two issues are connected.

The picture I have uploaded illustrates the problem I am having. I dragged the finder tool over the black strip under "Finder tool". The autoit window info says the color is 0x3C94DC, while the 'Just Color Picker' says it is black.

I am running Windows 10 on my Macbook Pro using bootcamp. Any help or guidance is appreciated. Please let me know if I need to provide more information. Thanks!

Strangely enough I have the same issue, was trying to get a colour yesterday.

The pointer seems to be showing colours from about 2 inches away, I used the magnifier and thought it was not seeing the window but picking up the desktop, it wasn't, it was about 2 inches left x 2 inches higher.

A fix? anyone

Edit; added image, as you can see the mouse pointer was just above the "n" in the word count, miles away

Update: I have downgraded from windows 10 to windows 8 and I am still having the same issue. I discovered I am having the same problem as Phaser. If i hover the color finder over the google chrome application it does not show the correct colors, but when I move the find down and to the right (off of the logo) it gives me the colors of the logo.

EDIT: After a bit more fiddling I noticed the further right you go on screen the worse it gets, so I looked at what the screen res was and then on the tool checked under Window tab and noticed there were 2 different sizes, how do I get the tool to pick up the correct screen res? see attached image

This tool is not DPI aware. In display settings you need to set text size to 100%
