Found this script, but can't get it to work.

6 posts in this topic

I found this while I was working on getting a better understanding of: MouseGetPos, PixelGetColor and ToolTip, it looks like it should do about exactly what I want it to, but it doesn't seem to do anything in its current condition.

Would someone explain how this works, or should work?

Func SelectColor($color_bg)
    sleep(100)
    $msg =     "Left Click on color to Record "
    while 1
        $xy = MouseGetPos()
        $currentpixel = PixelGetColor($xy[0],$xy[1])
        ToolTip("Pixel color:  " & $currentpixel & @LF & $msg)
        If _IsPressed("01") Then
            GUICtrlSetBkColor($display_Color,$currentpixel)
            GUICtrlSetData($display_Color,$currentpixel)    
            $Color_Hex = $currentpixel
    ExitLoop
    EndIf
        Sleep(25)
    WEnd
EndFunc

It looks like it should work fine... it is changing a GUI background

Thats what I thought as well, but it does not mention anything via ToolTip:

ToolTip("Pixel color:  " & $currentpixel & @LF & $msg)

That is not a complete script. You have a function declaration with no calls to run the function. Inside that function you have references to Global variables like $display_Color and possibly $Color_Hex for which there is no usage outside the function. It uses an include file that isn't shown, and has an input parameter that isn't used.

Try this as an educational demo:

#include <misc.au3>
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Quit")

While 1
    $avAnswer = SelectColor()
    MsgBox(64, "Results", $avAnswer[0] & "," & $avAnswer[1] & " = 0x" & Hex($avAnswer[2], 6))
WEnd

Func SelectColor()
    Sleep(100)
    Local $msg = "Left Click on color to Record "
    While 1
        $xy = MouseGetPos()
        $currentpixel = PixelGetColor($xy[0], $xy[1])
        ToolTip("Pixel location:  " & $xy[0] & "," & $xy[1] & @LF & _
                "Pixel color:  0x" & Hex($currentpixel, 6) & @LF & _
                $msg)
        If _IsPressed("01") Then
            Local $avRET[3] = [$xy[0], $xy[1], $currentpixel]
            Return $avRET
        EndIf
        Sleep(25)
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>SelectColor

Func _Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Quit

Yea i was wondering about the $color_bg.

Now that is one nice little program! You basically showed me how to do about 3 things I have been working on figuring out, Thanks man.
