Cant get pixelsearch to work in Windows 10

7 posts in this topic

Using sample code:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
; Find a pure red pixel in the range 0,0-20,300
Local $aCoord = PixelSearch(0, 0, 20, 300, 0xFF0000)
If Not @error Then
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "X and Y are: " & $aCoord[0] & "," & $aCoord[1])
Else
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Pure Not Found")
EndIf
; Find a pure red pixel or a red pixel within 10 shades variations of pure red
$aCoord = PixelSearch(0, 0, 20, 300, 0xFF0000, 10)
If Not @error Then
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "X and Y are: " & $aCoord[0] & "," & $aCoord[1])
Else
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Variant Not Found")
EndIf
 
and the attached screenshot which has Pure Red (FF0000) in one icon in the area being searched.

Would someone please check this out for me?

What application are you blocking from view? There is undoubtedly a better way to do this.

I blanked out the app I was automating.

I afterwards realised that I was running my test where I run my automation, on a second screen.

If I move SciTE to the main screen the test works so I need to build a better example.

The problem I have is that the pixelsearch which is supplied the handle to the app window always returns the same location for the found (@error=0) pixel.

I am using the handle as the window is not on the same screen as SciTE.

Is the fact I'm running SciTE  on another screen perhaps the cause of my problem?

I don't think that was ever in question. I asked what app it is, because 99% of the time pixelsearch is not the way to go. There is almost always a better way to do it.

MrMajorThorburn, we could gladly help you with your request but first you would have to actually provide information about why are you trying to use pixelsearch? For what purpose is it?

If you can give me details about what you want to use it for then I'll gladly help you

Its ok. I was not aware of the restriction of use of autoit.

I will establish a business scenario and see if I get the same problem and if so raise a new request for help.

I will be able to supply full disclosure that way.

Thanks for your interest and guidance.

Be back soon in another request.

Before coming back please ensure you are familiar with the forum rules, as you obviously had not read them yet. Along with the restriction on game automation, please see this section:

Do not repost the same question if the previous thread has been locked - particularly if you merely reword the question to get around one of the prohibitions listed above.

      How do I work with 2D arrays.  I've tried this but get errors.
      Local $aTest[4][4] = [[1,2,3,4],[5,6,7,8],[9,10,11,12],[13,14,15,16]]
      ;$aTest[0][] = [10,11,12]  ; Error at []
      Local $sTest = ""
      For $i = 0 To UBound($aTest)-1
        Local $aExtract = _ArrayExtract($aTest,$i,$i)
        $sTest = $sTest & MyTest($aExtract)
      Next
      Func MyTest($aTemp)
        _ArrayDisplay($aTemp)
        ; Error at    v $aTemp
        Return String($aTemp[0]) & " - " & String($aTemp[1]) & " - " & String($aTemp[2]) & @CRLF
      EndFunc

      I'm trying to fill a ListView with all normal viewable windows to act with them.
      First I tried with WinList:
      Local $aWinList = WinList("[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)(.+)]") Local $aTmp, $iID ;~ _ArrayDisplay($aWinList) For $i = $aWinList[0][0] To 1 Step -1 ; going backwards not disturbing the index while cycling through and deleting some If StringStripWS( $aWinList[$i][0], 3) == "" Or _ Not BitAND(WinGetState($aWinList[$i][1]), $WIN_STATE_VISIBLE) Or _ BitAND(WinGetState($aWinList[$i][1]), $WIN_STATE_MINIMIZED ) Then _ArrayDelete($aWinList, $i) Else ; Window has a Title and is "visible" $aTmp = WinGetPos($aWinList[$i][1]) If $aTmp[0] < -1000 Or $aTmp[1] < -1000 Then ; Window is minimized or tray icon _ArrayDelete($aWinList, $i) EndIf EndIf Next $aWinList[0][0] = UBound($aWinList)-1 ; getting actual # of windows ; Each row is now [ID]=> [Title], [hWnd] But it keeps getting Windows which are definitely not there at least not visible:

      Those windows "Rechner", "Einstellungen", "Netflix", "Microsoft Store", ... are not there!?! 
      It should list only the first three windows, which are real.
      I even tried it with _WinAPI_ UDF:
      $hWnd = _WinAPI_GetForegroundWindow() ; Add items _GUICtrlListView_BeginUpdate($idListview) If $hWnd <> 0 Then $iI = 0 Do If _WinAPI_IsWindow($hWnd) And _WinAPI_IsWindowVisible Then _GUICtrlListView_AddItem($idListview, WinGetTitle($hWnd)) _GUICtrlListView_AddSubItem($idListview, $iI, $hWnd, 1) $iI += 1 $hWnd = _WinAPI_GetWindow($hWnd, $GW_HWNDNEXT) EndIf Until $hWnd = 0 EndIf But it is the same...
       
      How can i distinguish those invisible windows from normal ones?
      PS: I'm using Windows 10, maybe it is important to know?

      I need help about pixel search. The problem with the script below is that PixelSearch does not continue on the coordinates where it has stopped.
      When the first pixelsearch finds the 1st pixel, it should move the mouse over it and new pixels would appear just like hovering over menus. Then upon hover, there would be another PixelSearch to see if the second red pixel is found. If not found, then it should resume the first PixelSearch instead of starting from left to right again. 
      For example we are doing a pixelsearch on two straight lines with coordinates  [x,y]  :
      [0,0] [1,0] [2,0]
      [1,0] [1,1] [1,2]
      Pixelsearch finds the coordinate [1,0] matching our color. So it checks the pixel just below it which is [1,1] to see if it is color red. If not red then it should continue searching starting on coordinates [2,0] instead of going back to [0,0]
      Local $bflag = False Do     ToolTip("finding..",0,0,"")     Sleep(500)     $var = PixelSearch(591, 169, 1365, 740, 0x464950,50) ; look for initial pixel     If Not @error Then ;         MouseMove($var[0],$var[1],0) ;move on the button to show new selections, new pixels         sleep(1000)         ;search for the red pixel on an area above the first pixel coords which was          ;generated when mouse cursor was hovered on the first pixel found.         $redpixel = PixelSearch($var[0]-50,$var[1]-50,$var[0]+50,$var[1]+50,0xFF0048)          If Not @error Then ; Found the 2nd pixel                 ToolTip("found...",0,0,"")             $bflag = True          EndIf     EndIf Until $bflag I can pay 50USD through Paypal for a working solution. thanks

      Hello all ~
      I am running an autoit script on Windows 10 inside VMware Workstation 12 Pro version 12.5.2.  Technically I am remoting into ESXi which has a Domain Controller (DC), WebServer, FilServer, Windows 10, etc.  Using the GUI (i.e. running explorer.exe) I am able to open several different folders successfully.  The desktop, documents, USB external all open without issue.  The network share opening gives me issues.  Whenever I attempt to open \\filserver\users\user\sharedfolder I get the documents folder instead.  I understand that the documents folder is the default for explorer.  I have also attempted to use the letter drive mapped to the network share (Z:) and receive the same result.  When I run this script on Windows 10 alone without  the VM or the ESXi I am able to open the network share without problems.  I have tried to use the net use command to designate a letter M: to the network share folder prior to running the script.  This did not work for me.  
      One additional avenue I think might work is to use the systreeview321 and _GUICtrlTreeView_FindItem to step through the tree looking for the network share.  Once found,  double click on it and see if that opens the shared network folder.  I can click inside the VM with my mouse on the network share and it opens just fine.  Not sure if running up against GUI issues, or permission issues, or what?
      Thanks in advance,

      This script is a subset of a much larger program, but it illustrates what I am dealing with.
