_ScreenCapture_Capture doesnt saves the image

Recommended Posts

letsCodeMyLife

Hello,

I want to save a screenshot with _ScreenCapture_Capture. My code:

#include <ScreenCapture.au3>

_ScreenCapture_Capture(@ScriptDir & "/test.jpg", 0, 0, 1366, 700)

The problem is not to capture the screen, the problem is to save the image.

Can you help me?

Thanks.

Just to let you know, desktop.ini is a virus called Recycler, you should check if it's a positive and if it is, avoid deleting massive amount of files.

About your problem with ScreenCapture, try instead using _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd

Like this:
 

#include <ScreenCapture.au3>

$0 = @ScriptDir
$a = Random(0,200)
$ab = Random(0,10)
$b = "10.9.8.7.6.5.4.3.2.1"
$c = StringSplit($b, ".")
$b0 = 1
For $d in $c
    If $b0 <> 1 Then
        SplashTextOn('', "Capturing in " & $d& "...", 150, 100, 100, 100, 0, "Tahoma", 16)
        Sleep(1000)
        If $d = "1" Then
            SplashOff()
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Else
        $b0 = 0
    EndIf
Next
$HWnd = WinActive('', '')
Sleep(500)
_ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd($0 & "\Screenshots\" & "Screenshot" & $a +$ab & ".jpg", $HWnd, 0, 0, -1, -1, False)
MsgBox(0, '', "Screenshot saved on " & $0 & "\Screenshots\" & "Screenshot" & $a +$ab & ".jpg")
exit 0

 

  • Variable $0 stores current script working directory
  • Variable $a stores a random number between 0 and 200
  • Variable $ab stores a random number between 0 and 10
  • Variable $b stores a countdown
  • Variable $c splits the variable $b into an array countdown
  • Variable $b0 debugs For loop to skip the first subscript [0] that contains amount of subscripts
  • For loop does a countdown and splashs it on screen.
  • Variable $d stores the countdown
  • Between each $d round, it sleeps a second.
  • After countdown end, variable $HWnd stores the handle of the actual active window
  • _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd searchs for a folder called "Screenshots" on @ScriptDir and stores screen capture there.
  • Then a MsgBox saying the location of screenshot saved pops up
  • Exit script.

Desktop.ini happens in normal windows operation. It's presence does not mean he has a virus.

nope my Desktop.ini isn't  a Virus.

And the _Screencapture_CaptureWnd also doesnt work.

And when i try to execute it on the SciTe Shell it Displays this error: (its german)

>"E:\AutoItEdit\..\AutoIt3.exe" "E:\AutoItEdit\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.au3" /run /prod /ErrorStdOut /in "C:\Users\Sybille\Desktop\test.au3" /UserParams   
>Das System kann die angegebene Datei nicht finden.
 

"Das System kann die angegebene Datei nicht finden." is translated to english: "The System cant find the file."

About desktop ini, theres a virus called Recycler that tries to impersonate common recycle bin files to fill the hard disk of trash and let other viruses in.

 

There shouldn't be 2 of them, and if they also appear on other folders non related to desktop (Maybe along with links) then is a virus.

About ScreenCapture its cause you need a folder called Screenshots placed on the same directory as script, in example: C:/Test/Script/Screenshots

 

Where Script folder contains the script and Screenshots saves the screen captures.

 

You can, however, edit the script to change the directory to save screenshots at.

letsCodeMyLife,

The _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd function definitely does exist! Please run the following code and tell us what appears in the MsgBox:

MsgBox(0, "Version", @AutoItVersion)

@Melba23: The MsgBox Displays: 3.3.14.3

@DynamicRookie: I won't program Spyware and i already have created the Screenshots Folder and it also doesnt work.

But i find my own solve:

I use _WinAPI_SaveHBITMAPToFile. This works on my Computer, but  on my Laptop it Ends with error code 30.

letsCodeMyLife,

So, as explained here:

to which thread I linked you earlier, you are NOT using the latest version (despite your earlier comment) and, because of a known bug, the _ScreenCapture functions will not save a file. Update to 3.3.14.5 where the bug has been fixed (along with some others) and all will be well.

Might I suggest that in future you actually take the time to read the responses you get - then we would not have all wasted our time over the past few days.

      Hello friends, I have a query, it happens that I have a matrix nxn, the first column of this contains each cell a number with 21 digits, when I pass this matrix to Excel I obviously write that number as 1,10016E + 20, I solved it by adding a * at the end of each cell, but I want it to be written as a text so that I do not have to remove that *, I searched in Google but could not find an effective solution, thanks in advance.

      Hi, This is my first post on the AutoIt Forums, I most of the time was able to get help from this community by merely searching though google and have been able to solve hundreds of problems this way, though in this case I was incapable of finding a solution to my problem. I am quite confident that it is a user error (And my fault) but I haven't been able to determine what I did wrong, any and all help would be greatly appreciated! I have uploaded my whole script pardon passwords to provide as much information as possible.
      I declared a global array at the top of the script and am having issues when I try to set it's value, and I fail to understand why.

      Hey. I'm working on a new project and was wondering if there is a better way to "update" my Column E array. 
      Here is my code: 
      Local $nI  = 0                                                            ;Creates a name index of 0: nI = Name index Local $nII = 1                                                            ;Creates a name index of 1 for second loop: nII = Name Index 2 For    $iN = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1                                       ;Checks the roster for any names that appear twice      For $iN2 = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1          if $d_Names[$nI] == $d_Names[$nII] And $d_Names[$nII] <> "" Then              Local $timeSheetName = _ArraySearch($e_Names, $d_Names[$nI], 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)              ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Found it", $d_Names[$nI] & " In column E on Row " & $timeSheetName)              Local $eI  = $timeSheetName + 1              ;ConsoleWrite($timeSheetName & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite($eI & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)              _Excel_RangeInsert($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, "E" & $eI & ":F" & $eI, $xlShiftDown)                                                                          ;Inserts a empty cell in columns E and F.              _Excel_RangeWrite($OpenWorkbook, $OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $d_Names[$nII], "E" & $eI)                                                                         ;Fills the empty cell in columns E with the doubled name              $aArray_Index = 2                                           ;Array element counter              For $Index = 2 To $IndexRows Step 1                        ;Loops through every row in the Excel file unto no rows are found or a null row is found                  $Array_Value_E = _Excel_RangeRead($OpenWorkbook, Default, "E"&$Index)                  $e_names[$aArray_Index] = $Array_Value_E                ;While the code loops every value in column E is stored in the E array (updating the array)                  $aArray_Index += 1              Next              ExitLoop          EndIf      Next      $nI  += 1      $nII += 1 Next Basically, It checks a roster for people whose name appears twice then inserts a new "row" for that person because they work in two different departments.
      I have to find that name however in Column E if two appear in column D. My code works but I think it is not as efficient as it could be. 
      Any ideas on how to improve the "update" for my array?
      (once it finds the double names in Column D it then searches for that name by going name by name in the Column E array and once it finds it inserts a new row. However, the E array doesn't have that new row stored in it so I have to "update" the array to properly find the next name)
      Any and all tips would be greatly appreciated. 
       
      NOTE: Just assume I'm opening the excel file properly please do not add that code in, it only complicates your answer.
