Is it possible to add a pixel search in a While Loop?

Recommended Posts

Hi There, I have a very basic question, iv been watching most of Autoit Youtube videos and I understand how the While Loop works but I wanted to know if its possible to add a PixelSearch inside the While Loop?

For example:

HotKeySet("^!x", "MyExit")

While 1
  ; do stuff here
WEnd

Func MyExit()
    Exit 
EndFunc

This is what I normally use for loops but I wanted to understand how to add a pixel search inside a loop, for example doing something extra if a pixel search is found while doing the loop? 

Maybe I am not explaining myself correctly because I don't have a purpose right now but I really wanna understand if this would be possible and how would it work?

 

Also a quick question, when doing the PixelSearch, I normally use the Magnifier to search for Pixels with the AutoIt Windows Info and I dont know if the pixel is the entire square I see within the Magnifier? or just the center of the magnifier? 

 

Thanks in advance!!

Yes, you absolutely can. Lots of things can be put inside of other things...

While True
    While True
        While True
            If PixelSearch() Then
                While True
                    ConsoleWrite("Hi!")
                WEnd
            EndIf
        WEnd
    WEnd
WEnd

(That's an example, don't try it) Loops, functions, and conditionals can all have things inside of them

Edit: Also, Welcome! :)

Thanks!!! I will try it.

So basically I could do something like this right?

 

HotKeySet("^!x", "MyExit")

While 1
  ; do stuff here
   If PixelSearch() Then
   While True
    ; do this
    WEnd
   Endif

WEnd

Func MyExit()
    Exit 
EndFunc

Yes. (I meant don't try it because there was no exit condition and no parameters for the PixelSearch... aka, it won't do anything)
