PixelChecksum - PixelSearch

Recommended Posts

I was able to do what i wanted via PixelSearch.

Now, how can i create a PixelChecksum of a certain are on the screen and then use it to find that exact location on the screen again ?

Draft:

$bla=CreatePixelChecksum(screenarea)

LocateChecksum(screen,$bla)

Thanks folks.

What have you tried? Seems like 2 For/Next Loops to me... (the answer I gave, the example I didn't (look familiar :D :D )

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.

Ok, doing a pixelchecksum search via 0 to height nested in 0 to width works but very SLOOOOOWLY, is this the only way to do it?

No, let's say you pixelchecksumed from 200, 200 to 300, 300.

You get the value $myCheckSum.

You also stored the color of 200, 200 in a vairable called $topLeftColor.

You PixelSearch for $topLeftColor and check whether it is the thing you want by PixelCheckSumming the appropriate area.

Hope I make any sense.

Thanks, I finally figured it out with the PixelAreaFind.au3 example.

I'm going to post code shortly of what I have been working on. - Posted

Instructions:

Needs beta to run.

Start it up.

Setup for area to PixelCheckSum.... I minimized everything and used my desktop.

Move mouse to Top/Left corner of area you want to PixelCheckSum.

Press either Shift key once.

Move mouse to Bottom/Right corner.

Press either Shift key again.

MessageBox will pop up with Left/Top/Bottom/Right/Width/Height/Top-Left Pixel color and PixelCheckSum for the area you have selected.

You can click OK or it will time out. (Put the time out in because I selected the entire screen once and couldn't get back to messagebox to click OK - lesson learned)

After that press the ~ (tilde) key and it will attempt to find the area you selected before. Doesn't work very well. Still trying to figure out how it's searching.

If you recognize some of your code - THANKS it helped me learn alot.

The results from the previous efforts just didn't do what I wanted. So I rewrote it.

Explaination: This, simply put, allows you to select a portion (any size) of your screen and then it gives you the information of the selected area . Then it attempts to find the area you selected.

Gotta say, so far it's got a 100% success rate.

More features planned... stay tuned.

Feedback and bug reports welcome.

Edit: Forgot to mention it requires Beta

Instructions:

Start the script.

Position your mouse pointer to where you want to begin

Press either Shift key

Reposition your mouse pointer (down & right) to complete the selection area.

Press either Shift key again.

Self explanitory beyond that.
