_GDIPlus_ImageClone() missing from 3.3.14.5 ?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I find _GDIPlus_ImageClone in the Help, but neither in SciTe auto-complete nor in GDIPlus.au3

Shoud this be reported in Trac?

By searching the forum (and changing the name of the first arguement ot DLLCall, the code appears to be:

Func _GDIPlus_ImageClone($hImage)
    Local $aResult = DllCall($__g_hGDIPDll, "uint", "GdipCloneImage", "handle", $hImage, "int*", 0)
    If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, 0)
    Return $aResult[2]
EndFunc   ;==>_GDIPlus_ImageClone

c.haslam,

That function is in my copy of v3.3.14.5 GDIPlus.au3 at line #2359. I agree it is not in the SciTE autocomplete list, so you might want to open a ticket for that.

It is in my setup so that means that the AutoIt3 installer properly delivered the appropriate au3.api file as it is located on line 1028. 
Wondering why you guys don't have it.

I got it incl. auto complete, too.

v3.3.14.5: GDIPlus.au3 (line 2359)

Func _GDIPlus_ImageClone($hImage)
    Local $aResult = DllCall($__g_hGDIPDll, "int", "GdipCloneImage", "handle", $hImage, "handle*", 0)
    If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, 0)
    If $aResult[0] Then Return SetError(10, $aResult[0], 0)
    Return $aResult[2]
EndFunc   ;==>_GDIPlus_ImageClone

My error: it appears to be missing from 3.3.15.0, but is in my 3.3.14.5.

I am debugging using my cDebug.au3 which requires 3.3.15.0 (because it does maps). There  is no warning about "use maps at your own risk" in 3.3.15.0 so I went ahead and incorporated reporting maps into my cDebug.au3.  From Melb23, I understand that there will be a warning about maps being experimental in 3.3.15.1.

Perhaps I am going to have to create a stream of cDebug.au3 without maps.

Jos,

If it is missing in 3.3.15.# then it might well explain why my SciTE installation is missing it - I installed the (limited-availability, so others please do not ask) pre-release 3.3.15.1 after the 3.3.14.5 release and so presumably overwrote the release files.

@Melba23,

Yeap, that will do it as the AutoIt3 installer will always update the current files and deliver a copy in de C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\Defs tree. 

Don't remember why I removed that option from SciTEConfig back in 2012, which allowed  you to swap between Beta and Production definition files from SciTEConfig.

I did wonder at the time! There must have been a good reason.

I have added a cDebug no maps.au3 stream. Because cDebug is very modular, I could remove the maps stuff with a few #CS .. $CE blocks.

cDebug seems to be pretty bug free, so I should not get confused between the two streams.

      capture content of scrollable window/control capture cascaded menus Due to DllCall("User32.dll", "int", "PrintWindow", "hwnd", $hWnd, "handle", $hMemDC, "int", 0) limitation some windows cannot be captured properly (GDI+, ProgDVB, etc.) but can take screenshots of hidden windows. One workaround is to use full screen capturing (F11/F12) or "Grab Screen" function! Or try double click with rmb on listview items (beta).

      I'm creating a tool which automatically saves screenshots.  I've found that some images appear corrupt after saving.  I've narrowed the source down to screenshots taken from within an RDP session via the Ctrl+Alt+Plus (PrtScn equivalent) and Ctrl+Alt+Minus (Alt+PrtScn equivalent) key combos.
      Here is the example code:
      #include <ClipBoard.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> If _ClipBoard_IsFormatAvailable($CF_BITMAP) Then ConsoleWrite("+Bitmap found on Clipboard" & @CRLF) If Not _ClipBoard_Open(0) Then MsgBox(16, "Error", "_ClipBoard_Open failed") Exit EndIf $hClipboardImage = _ClipBoard_GetDataEx($CF_BITMAP) _ClipBoard_Close() _GDIPlus_Startup() $hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hClipboardImage) $sCLSID = _GDIPlus_EncodersGetCLSID("JPG") _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFileEx($hBitmap, @ScriptDir & "\" & TimerInit() & "_Clipboard_Image.jpg", $sCLSID, 0) _GDIPlus_BitmapDispose($hBitmap) _GDIPlus_Shutdown() Else MsgBox(48, @ScriptName, "No Bitmap found on Clipboard") EndIf If you copy a local window to the clipboard via Alt+PrtScn the above works fine.  If you copy a window in an RDP session via Ctrl+Alt+Minus it saves the image, but the left-hand edge appears to contain a few pixels sliced off the right-hand side of the bitmap (see two attached images for examples; one good, one bad).  If you paste directly into MSPaint, the image appears correctly, so the clipboard contents is good. It seems to be the process of converting the bitmap handle to an image file via GDIPlus which corrupts it (though I may be wrong about this).
      I've tried inspecting the contents of the clipboard via the _ClipBoard_EnumFormats example and I've noticed the clipboard from the RDP session contains a couple more formats;
      Local:
      Clipboard formats ..: 3 Clipboard format 1 .: Bitmap Clipboard format 2 .: DIB Clipboard format 3 .: DIB V5 RDP:
      Clipboard formats ..: 5 Clipboard format 1 .: DataObject Clipboard format 2 .: DIB Clipboard format 3 .: DIB V5 Clipboard format 4 .: Ole Private Data Clipboard format 5 .: Bitmap However the _ClipBoard_GetDataEx function is specifying the $CF_BITMAP constant for the format, which both instances contain, so I'm not sure the extra formats have any impact?
      I've tried using a combination of _ClipBoard_GetDataEx($CF_DIB) and _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromMemory in an effort to write the binary directly to a file, instead of using a bitmap handle, however this doesn't appear to work and just returns a zero and doesn't set @error to anything, which isn't covered in the help file (a failure should return a zero and set the @error level to something).
      I've hunted around the forums and tried everything I can think of. I can normally figure most things out without posting but I've been dipping in and out of this script for a few months now and have finally thrown in the towel and must ask you guys for help, which isn't a decision I take lightly.  Your help is, as always, greatly appreciated.

      Just press the lmb and move your mouse. When lmb is released you can adjust the size of the window by dragging the white rectangle to any direction. Rmb will move the marked area.
      Press ESC to get the coordinates of the marked region.
      If you have any improvements, please post it here.
