Rez Independent Pixelgetcolor...possible?

Recommended Posts


I am wondering if it is possible to PixelGetColor independent of the current client window resolution? For instance, I can make a script that works flawlessly at 1024x768 resolution, but if someone wants to run the game in a different res setting then the script won't work. I thought I had this licked by doing the following with my PixelGetColors:

if WinActivate("World of Warcraft","") = 1 then
        $size = WinGetClientSize("World of Warcraft")
        $clientWidth = $size[0]
        $clientHeight = $size[1]
        MsgBox(64,"Not Active","WoW does not appear to be active at this time.  Please start WoW and try again.")

Then in all my PixelGetColor statements I would do this:

$var = PixelGetColor(Round(($clientWidth*370)/1024), Round(($clientHeight*81)/768))

The actual x.y coord is 370,81 at 1024x768 so I figured using the ole ratio math I could find the same pixel at any other resolution. However, this does not work. The x coord works out but for some reason then y coord is off. Granted I thought this would work on any resolution that maintained the same aspect ratio but it doesn't. For instance, when I change to 800x600 the y coord is off by something like 12 pixels or so. Any ideas other than make anyone who wants to use the script use 1024x768 only?

Use Client Coords and Opt('PixelCoordMode', 2).

(You're AutoInfo Tool can be changed to Client coords under options / coord mode)

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.
