ImageSearch of an image within an image, help please


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I'm using "ImageSearch2015.au3" and i'm trying to figure out WHY, for the life of me, I can't find an image is hidden.

So what I came up with, is as follows:

_ImageSearchAreaHidden("C:\icon.png", 1, 0, 0, 800, 600, $x1, $y1, 80, 0)

Func _ImageSearchAreaHidden($findImage, $resultPosition, $x1, $y1, $right, $bottom, ByRef $x, ByRef $y, $tolerance, $transparency = 0)
    Local $h, $result
    local $TestScreen = "C:\TestScreen.png" ;previsous screenshot of the image looking for, fully visible
    If Not FileExists($findImage) Then Return "Image File not found"
    If $transparency <> 0 Then $findImage = "*" & $transparency & " " & $findImage
    If $tolerance < 0 Or $tolerance > 255 Then $tolerance = 0
    If $h_ImageSearchDLL = -1 Then _ImageSearchStartup()
    
    If $tolerance > 0 Then $findImage = "*" & $tolerance & " " & $findImage
    $result = DllCall($h_ImageSearchDLL, "str", "ImageSearchEx", "str", $TestScreen, "int", $x1, "int", $y1, "int", $right, "int", $bottom, "str", $findImage)
    If @error Then Return "DllCall Error=" & @error
    If $result = "0" Then Return False
    $array = StringSplit($result[0], "|")
    If (UBound($array) >= 4) Then
        $x = Int(Number($array[2])) ; Get the x,y location of the match
        $y = Int(Number($array[3]))
        If $resultPosition = 1 Then
            $x = $x + Int(Number($array[4]) / 2) ; Account for the size of the image to compute the centre of search
            $y = $y + Int(Number($array[5]) / 2)
        EndIf
        Return True
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>_ImageSearchAreaHidden

Now when the folder with the icon is completely visible, it finds the icon without any issues, however if I cover up the icon, it no longer finds the image in the folder.

Any ideas?

Well, how will the script find something it cant see? It has to be visible, the same way for you to see something it has to be.

There is an image of the desktop that I am trying to use as a reference ... Hence 

local $TestScreen = "C:\TestScreen.png" ;previsous screenshot of the image looking for, fully visible

so if it can't see the image on the screen then reference the TestScreen.png and it that way.

It should detect the image if you feed it a previous screenshot where the image was visible, as you say you did.

I will have to do some tests at home.

      Hi,
      My AutoIt script is as folllows:
      ;use for calling function add2NosA in dll ;Local $vNo1 = 33 ;Local $vNo2 = 11 ;use for calling function sortNos in dll Local $vNo1 = [11,7,9] Local $vNo2 = [1,3,2] ; _ArrayDisplay($vNo1, "vNo1 display") ; _ArrayDisplay($vNo2, "vNo2 display") ;Local $hWnd = DllOpen("E:\CV-Dell-1\autoit3\myComObj1.dll") Local $hWnd = ObjCreate("myComObj1.clsMath") if (@error) Then MsgBox (0, "Error", "Error1 = " & @error) Exit EndIf ;function call method - DllCall with function name ;Local $aRes = DllCall($hWnd, "int", "addNosA", "int", $vNo1, "int", $vNo2) ;Local $aRes = DllCall($hWnd, "Ptr", "sortNos", "Array", $vNo1, "Array", $vNo2) ;function call method - $hWnd.<function name> ;Local $aRes = $hWnd.add2NosA($vNo1, $vNo2) ; this works fine with ObjCreate Local $aRes = $hWnd.sortNos($vNo1, $vNo2) if (@error) Then MsgBox (0, "Error", "Error2 = " & @error) DllClose($hWnd) Exit EndIf ;use appropriate msgbox ;MsgBox(0,"Result", "Result = " & $vNo1[0]) MsgBox(0,"Result", "Result = " & $aRes) _ArrayDisplay($vNo1, "vNo1 display") _ArrayDisplay($aRes , "aRes display") DllClose($hWnd) My VB.Net - ClassLibrary - Dll - COM obj is as follows - has 2 functions - add2NosA and sortNos:
      <ComClass(clsMath.ClassId, clsMath.InterfaceId, clsMath.EventsId)> Public Class clsMath Public Const ClassId As String = "3A42F85E-24C8-4BAA-91B5-AE56C4683C13" Public Const InterfaceId As String = "D99D7C79-2BA7-4A33-B7BC-9B7F19FDF828" Public Const EventsId As String = "CA128AC4-580C-4112-9EAD-8D1599E3F37A" Public Sub New() MyBase.New() End Sub Public Function add2NosA(ByVal no1 As Integer, ByVal no2 As Integer) As Integer Return (no1 + no2) End Function Public Sub sortNos(ByRef no1 As Array, ByRef no2 As Array) Array.Sort(no1) no2 = no1 End Sub End Class  Over all I tried various 8 options mentioned in the attached Excel file - with only 1 combination working.
      Overall could not make Array returned capture in AutoIt script. 
      Can someone help please?
      Thanks in  advance.

      I have create a function in FreeBasic like below:
      Extern "Windows-MS" Type tA f1 As Integer f2 As Integer End Type Public Function _switchOrder(ByVal no1 As Integer, ByVal no2 As Integer) As tA Export Dim result As Integer Dim taa As tA taa.f1 = no2 taa.f2 = no1 Return taa End Function End Extern Caller AutoIt code is:
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Global Const $sTag_ftdi_version_info="struct; int no1a; int no2a; endstruct" Local $aRet=DllCall("Math1.dll","Ptr","_switchOrder", "Int", 10, "Int", 30) ;MsgBox (0,"",@error & "-" & $aRet[0] & "-" & $aRet[1]& "-" & $aRet[2]) Local $t_ftdi_version_info=DllStructCreate($sTag_ftdi_version_info,$aRet[0]) MsgBox (0,"msg1=",@error & "---" & $aRet[0] & "-" & $aRet[1]& "-" & $aRet[2]) ;Local $retData1 = DllStructGetData($t_ftdi_version_info,"",1) Local $retData1 = DllStructGetData($t_ftdi_version_info,"no1a") MsgBox (0,"msg2=",@error & "--" & $retData1) ;Local $retData1 = DllStructGetData($t_ftdi_version_info,"",2) Local $retData1 = DllStructGetData($t_ftdi_version_info,"no2a") MsgBox (0,"msg2=",@error & "--" & $retData1) ;ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($t_ftdi_version_info,"",2) & "--" & @error) ;ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($t_ftdi_version_info,"no2a") & @CRLF) ;ConsoleWrite(DllStructGetData($tversion_str,1) & @CRLF) Getting error 2 for DllStructGetData or it give Close Application AutoIt popup message. 
      Certainly DllCall is not returning pointer to the Structure in $aRet[0] hence issue.
      Can someone help me fix this please?
      Thanks in advance.

      This simple dllcall gives me error 5, access denied,
      Func _WinAPI_VkKeyScan($__key) _WinAPI_SetLastError(0) $res = DllCall('User32.dll', 'SHORT', 'VkKeyScan', 'CHAR', $__key) _xConsole('res: '&$res) $_LastErr = _WinAPI_GetLastError() If $_LastErr <> 0 Then _xConsole('Err: {' & $_LastErr & '}> ' & _WinAPI_GetLastErrorMessage()) Return $res EndFunc Am i doing something wrong?
      Also tried VkKeyScanA and W

      I downloaded: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/files/file/471-image-search-udf/
      I have also added #include "_ImageSearch.au3" and "_ImageSearchDebug.au3" to my script.
      My script its in the same folder of _ImageSearcha.au3,_ImageSearchDebug.au3 (with dll files etc.)
      Every time I try to run my script I get: Line48 Error: Unknown function name.
      While(_ImageSearch(Seach_1.bmp, 0) And _ImageSearch(Seach_2.bmp, 0) <> True) Sleep(100) WEnd ;Sleep until you see this 2 image If(_ImageSearch(Seach_1.bmp, 0) And _ImageSearch(Seach_2.bmp, 0) = True)Then
