looking for alternative to pixelsearch

Recommended Posts

looking for a way to click something when something's popped up, pixelsearch has been what i'm using but i'm looking to go a bit more advanced wondering if there's a way to maybe map the pop up? for instance if i had a pop up saying "OK" and "Close" i'd want it to click "Ok" but i don't want to use a pixel search or specific coordinates, would like the script to recognize the boxes as "Ok" and "Close" is that possible or am i reaching out of bounds?

Depends on the application you are trying to automate.  More infos are needed at this point.

i don't have a script written up for any program i deleted my old script  because i was brainstorming this idea. was wondering if it was possible.

If you want to automate "expected pop-ups" then it is quite easy (depending on the application you want to automate).
Unexpected pop-ups (like error messages etc.) are much harder to automate.

So, as always, it depends ;)
