What functions are you referening to?

e.g. When you talk about PixelGetColor it returns the coordinates depending on the AutoItSetOption("PixelCoordMode", mode) option ....

Maybe this helps:

PixelCoordMode

Sets the way coords are used in the pixel functions, either absolute coords or coords relative to the current active window:

1 = absolute screen coordinates (default)

0 = relative coords to the active window

That answer can be found in the same place in the helpfile as I mentioned above. Shoulnd't be too hard to find...

Also take a look at AutoItSetOption. Its options CaretCoordMode, MouseCoordMode and PixelCoordMode determine how various parts of AutoIt look at co-ordinates.
