Possible to draw line on screen?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to draw a line (can able to change the color of the line) on the screen?

Some kind of UDF maybe... like _drawline( start_x, start_y, end_x, end_y, color, color_mode, line_type)

optionals:

color_mode is

0 - COLORREF rgbcolor

1 - BGR hex

2 - RGB hex (default)

line_type is

0 - dashes ie: --------

1 - fill, thickness = 1 (default)

2 - fill, thickness = 2

3 - fill, thickness = 3

4 - dots ie: ...........

5 - dashes and dots ie: ...-...-...

Of course this function is made up, I was just wondering if such thing possible...?

Thanks.

One Meathod is to use a DLL call to draw directly onscreen, This is a rip from some code I use.

$hdc = DllCall("user32.dll","int","GetDC","hwnd",0)
For $i = 1 to $Path[0][0]
    $x = $Path[$i][0]
    $y = $Path[$i][1]
    DllCall("gdi32.dll","int","SetPixel","int",$hdc[0],"int",$x,"int",$y,"int",0xFF00FF)
Next
DllCall("user32.dll","int","ReleaseDC","hwnd",0,"int",$hdc[0])

There is always a butthead in the crowd, no matter how hard one tries to keep them out.......Volly

Ok how about this...

;Includes
#Include <Array.au3>

;Variables
$debug = 1
Dim $Path[2][2] = [[2,2]]

;Make the Array
;MakeArray(0, 0, 500, 100, $Path)
;MakeArray(200, 100, 0, 300, $Path)
;MakeArray(0, 100, 500, 0, $Path)
MakeArray(500, 100, 0, 0, $Path)

;Display Array (if $debug = 1)
If $debug = 1 Then
    _ArrayDisplay($Path)
EndIf

;Draw
$hdc = DllCall("user32.dll","int","GetDC","hwnd",0)
For $i = 1 to $Path[0][0]-1
    $x = $Path[$i][0]
    $y = $Path[$i][1]
    DllCall("gdi32.dll","int","SetPixel","int",$hdc[0],"int",$x,"int",$y,"int",0xFF00FF)
Next
DllCall("user32.dll","int","ReleaseDC","hwnd",0,"int",$hdc[0])

Exit



;$a must be 2 dimentional array
Func MakeArray($startx, $starty, $endx, $endy, ByRef $a)
    $sz = 0
    $xd = 0
    $yd = 0
    $tx = 0
    $ty = 0
    
    If $debug = 1 Then
        MsgBox(0, 'DEBUG', '$startx: ' & $startx & ' ... $starty: ' & $starty & @CRLF & '$endx: ' & $endx & ' ... $endy: ' & $endy)
    EndIf
    
;if reversed, swap both x and y
    If $endx < $startx and $endy < $starty Then
    ;swap x
        $tx = $endx
        $endx = $startx
        $startx = $tx
    ;swap y
        $ty = $endy
        $endy = $starty
        $starty = $ty
    EndIf
    
;x diff
    $xd = abs($endx - $startx)
;y diff
    $yd = abs($endy - $starty)
;size
    If $xd > $yd Then
        $sz = $xd
    Else
        $sz = $yd
    EndIf
    Dim $a[$sz][2] = [[$sz, 2]]
    
    If $debug = 1 Then
        MsgBox(0, 'DEBUG', '$sz is: ' & $sz & @CRLF & '$a[0][0] is: ' & $a[0][0])
    EndIf
    
    For $i = 1 to $a[0][0]-1
    ;x
        If $startx > $endx Then
            $a[$i][0] = Ceiling($startx - $i * ($xd / $sz))
        Else
            $a[$i][0] = Ceiling($startx + $i * ($xd / $sz))
        EndIf
        
    ;y
        If $starty > $endy Then
            $a[$i][1] = Ceiling($starty - $i * ($yd / $sz))
        Else
            $a[$i][1] = Ceiling($starty + $i * ($yd / $sz))
        EndIf
    Next
EndFunc

_WinAPI_Redrawwindow. eg:

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#Include <GDIPlus.au3>

_GDIPlus_Startup ()

$hDC = _WinAPI_GetWindowDC(0)

$hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHDC($hDC)
$Color = 0xFF000000
$hPen = _GDIPlus_PenCreate($Color,2)


For $y = 0 to 30
    For $x = 0 to @DesktopWidth Step 5
        _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawLine($hGraphic, @DesktopWidth/2, 0, $x, @DesktopHeight, $hPen)
        $Color += Hex(2)
        _GDIPlus_PenSetColor($hPen, $Color)
    Next
Next


_WinAPI_RedrawWindow(_WinAPI_GetDesktopWindow(), 0, 0, $RDW_INVALIDATE+$RDW_ALLCHILDREN)
_WinAPI_ReleaseDC(0, $hDC)
_GDIPlus_Shutdown()
