PixelSearch not looking at loaded file image

Recommended Posts

Can someone please tell me what is wrong this is code and WHY it's not looking a a VERY simple png file that has 3 colours ... RED 0xFF0000 @ 0x0 ... Blue 0x00FF00 @ 0x1 ... Green 0x0000FF @ 0x2

#include <GDIPlus.au3>

;Details of the image we are about to search
$imageFile = "C:\Test.png"


$hImage = _GDIPlus_ImageLoadFromFile($imageFile)
$hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateHBITMAPFromBitmap($hImage)
$width = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hBitmap)
$height = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hBitmap)

If @error Then
    MsgBox(0,"","Not found")

_GDIPlus_ImageDispose ($hImage)
_WinAPI_DeleteObject ($hBitmap)

it always returns "Not Found" or just crashes out right

You're supplying the function with a GDI+ image handle, when you need to supply it with a window handle. I'm not sure it will work without an actual image to look at.

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.
