# Quick newb question about PixelCheckSum...

## Recommended Posts

=\

Sorry for the horrible question, but I am just starting to learn AutoIt...

Well, I am needing to know the total sum of pixels so that I can use the command PixelCheckSum... I searched forever including google, but no luck.. i found one post that said something about paint/photoshop, but I tried that and I can't figure out where it will give the total pixels... well anyways...if anybody could help that would be great.

Thanks!

hhmm... this may not help i donno but your total pixel count is

X * Y if ur on 800X600 then your pixel count is 800 * 600... i dont think you need a pixel count to use PixelCheckSum though...im probably being an idiot again

I don't think that is what I am meaning... here is an example..

If PixelChecksum(70, 290, 100, 305) = 365980723 Then

Endif

This is from some free source code I got.. how did the programmer find out the number 365980723? Isn't that the total count of certain pixels within that rectangle?

PixelChecksum generates a number that depends on the pixel colors in the region specified.

You can determine the checksum number with a line of code like this:

MsgBox(0, "", PixelChecksum(70, 290, 100, 305))

Perfect. Thanks a bunch
