Why All The Fuss About Getting Pixels?

Recommended Posts

Guys,

I'm really curious about this but why do so many users need to know the information about a pixel? I get the impression it's to do with games? I'd be interested in knowing what value is added to an application by collecting pixel dust! :think:

Guys,

In some situations where you can't get information based on "Hidden Control" or a "Non-Existant" one, pixel identification comes in handy when what you want has a specific pixel colour. Although I'm sure they would much rather have controls to use because of the speed and the ability to use controls in a minimized/active/hidden state, sometimes (for gamers or applications (mostly gamers I'm sure)) you have to resort to something like that.

I personally use it when I'm needing to read text that the control is hidden and I can't get the information I need and ControlShow()/ConrolFocus()/ControlCommand() won't work. I just take a bit of my time building an OCR for that specific application.


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
