_ScreenCapture_Capture not working

Recommended Posts

jameelo25

So this is a part of my script : 

func _xxxxxx
   WinActivate(xxxxx)
   MouseClick(xx)
   sleep(5000)
   send("xx")
   #include<ScreenCapture.au3>
   _ScreenCapture_Capture(@ScriptDir'\test.jpg',1238, 432, 1328, 447)
   EndFunc

Whenever I write this code, I get an error from autoit saying : 

_ScreenCapture_Capture(@ScriptDir'\test.jpg',1238, 432, 1328, 447)
_ScreenCapture_Capture(^ ERROR

Anyone knows how to fix that?

That would be because you need a & between the @Scriptdir macro and the rest of the path. The help file is your friend

You can't put an #include inside of another function. Move that #include line to the top of your script.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Sorry! Here it is

It's the same script above but I added the &

I did remove it from my function actually, I put it on top of the script

And what happened? Where's you ACTUAL script then? We can't work with old scripts you know don't work.

That's not the version of AutoIt, that's the version of SciTE. Run this script, and paste your clipboard in here.

No worries.

BTW, I ran the example script in the help file for _ScreenCapture_Capture and did not see that error. Is it possible for you to post the entire script you're using, or at least a reproducer that demonstrates the problem?

It appears a while statement is missing, at least when I compile it.

I see the problem. Your #include statement is after the While loop, the code in it doesn't get run. The functions are added to the script so the functions are there to be activated but the constants added to the UDF are never added to the variable table.

Do this instead.

#include <ScreenCapture.au3> ; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Moved to the TOP of the script, as I explained previously.
HotKeySet("{^}", "_switchnumb")
While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Thank you so much!! It's working now, moving it to the top actually fixed it! Thanks again!
