Compairing PixelGetColor using If will only detect black or not black

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a simple bot that beeps when a certain pixel changes color, such as watching a health bar to alert you when it is low. So far my code looks like this:

$pos = MouseGetPos()

$desired_color = PixelGetColor($pos[0], $pos[1])

ToolTip("Watching: "& $pos[0] & $pos[1], $pos[0], $pos[1], "Information", 1, 1)


ToolTip("For the color: "& $desired_color, $pos[0], $pos[1], "Information", 1, 1)


ToolTip("", $pos[0], $pos[1], "", 0, 1)

While 1

$actual_color = PixelGetColor($pos[0], $pos[1])

If Not $actual_color = $desired_color Then

Beep(400, 500)


ToolTip("Color: "& $actual_color, $pos[0], $pos[1], "Information", 1, 1) ;(line 13) this line was added only to make sure the color value did in fact change



What I can conclude is that it will only compare black vs not black. So say I put my cursor on a white explorer window, if I move the window so that the watched pixel is at a yellow icon, it will not beep. However, when I slide a black icon under the watched pixel, it will beep. It seems as though 0 is the only value not equal to any other color value, but I know it isn't by using line 13 of my script. I guess I could use pixel checksum, but I'd rather not unless I have to. And because as far as I can tell, there is no reason why this should not be working.

I'm rather new to AutoIt3 scripting, so it could easily be something obvious.

Why would variables show up differently in a message box than in a tool tip? The variables are showing up correctly in both the message box and the tooltip. I tried it and it does the same thing both ways.
