How to get color in a minimized window?

Recommended Posts


WinGetState, WinSetState, PixelGetColor.

Determine if window is minimized with WinGetState, un-minimize with WinSetState (flag: @SW_RESTORE), grab your pixel color, then re-minimize if you want. It'll happen quickly enough that the user doesn't need to know what happened, they might just see a quick flash on the screen.
