Question for Pixelsearch

15 posts in this topic

i'm a total, and yes, TOTAL noob on autoit.. in fact.. scripting... the only script i'm familiar with is Flash scripting =x

ok, but right now, i've roughly guessed how to make it work properly, the only thing right now is... i cannot differenciate the coordinates in pixelsearch.

i read through their helpfile, they told me "right top left bottom" respectively. but when i use "autoit window info", it only gave me x and y, ended up i dont know where to put what.... so someone please enlighten me >.<

thank you

omg... i'm so bad with maths... i failed it real hard... >.<

need some example... ~.~ such as like.. when "x = 88 y = 96" is shown on autoit window info,

so what will x1,y1 x2,y2 be?

Not trying to be cruel, but this aint advance math.

PixelSearch is explained simple inn the helpfile.

Here you go image illustration with code matching it :)

post-16522-1178487809_thumb.jpg

$color = 0x000000

$top = 40
$left = 45

$height = 200 + $left
$width = 150 + $top

$search = PixelGetColor($left,$top,$width,$height,$color)
If Not @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "Yeeey search finished with good results.", 'Your color was found at location: X:' & $search [0] & " Y:" & $search [1])
EndIf

BTW: Searches within the illustrated window inn the example image.

erm... sorry, but i still dont get it...

first, i can safely conclude that pixelsearch is to find the corresponding colour i've indicated it to find in an area of rectangle right? let's say, if i want it to search a specific area for that colour, example white (#FFFFFFF), what should i key in?

for example, the autoit window info says x = 88 y = 96, what should the parameter be?

the monitor is 1024 768 wide.

pixelsearch( ?left, ?top, ?right, ?bottom, #FFFFFFF )

x = 88, y = 96

This is only 1 point on your monitor. 1 Pixel. its not a region to search.

To define the rectangle, you take the (x,y) positions for 2 points you will end up with an (X1, X2, Y1, and Y2); One at the top left of the rectangle, and one at the bottom right of the rectangle.

Then, they are put in the function like this

PixelSearch( X1, Y1, X2, Y2, Color)

mmhhmm, look at the image again, X1 Y1 describe the upper left corner of this "rectangle" that the function will search, now X2 Y2 describe the bottom right of this box...

if I wanted it to search the whole screen, I would set X1 to 0 and Y1 to 0, because thats the beginning of the screen, then X2 will be @desktopwidth because it represents the width of the whole screen, and same with Y2 = @desktopheight

PixelSearch(0,0,@DesktopWidth,@DesktopHeight,COLOR)

so x1, y1 (88, 96) coordinates will be the upper left corner of the rectangle which i'm trying to search?

then x2, y2 will the lower right corner of the rectangle?

so in short, it will be something like (88, 96, x2, y2)?

example again:

coordinates for the top left corner, (88, 96)

coordinates for the bottom right corner, (92, 100)

colours White (#FFFFFFF)

so the command will be

Pixelsearch(88, 96, 92, 100, #FFFFFFF)

???

eh.. wait.. i realise something...

the above thread state that x2 y2 is the width and height of the entire square...

to reconfirm...

x = 88, y = 96

width = 100, height = 150

so the coding will be

pixelsearch( 88, 96, 100, 150, 0x#FFFFFFF)

and that will command it to search for #FFFFFFF within the box which it's top left corner starting from coordinates 88, 96?

Not quite.

Here, let me explain it in steps.

  • Find your rectangular region on your screen (no need for numbers yet, just visualize it)
  • Open the Autoit Window Info tool
  • Move your mouse to the top-left-hand corner of the region.
  • Record the (x,y) values from the Window info tool (For reference, this is X1 and Y1)
  • Move mouse to the bottom-right-hand corner of the region
  • Record the (x,y) values from the Window info tool (For reference, this is X2 and Y2)
Now for your code, Format the call like:

PixelSearch( X1, Y1, X2, Y2, Color)

Does that clarify it at all?

???

erm... so this is correct instead?

Everything you say in this post is correct, apart from the last parameter. I did show you how it was supposed to be,

but obviously the only thing you considered slightly and used from that was the 0x-prefix (0x#FFFFFFF ?), ignoring

everything else completely.

So, did you try the code in my post ?

Edit : wording
