Pixelsearch Help

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi, i am working on a little project that requires me to search for a pixel color in a specified field.

So far i have managed to make it work on a preset location pixelsearch box, everything works flawlessly.

But for maximum versatility i want to make it so i can click on a point on my screen, then it will form a preset sized pixelsearchbox around the point i clicked at.

So like for example i would like to be able to press f10, then it asks me to click somewhere. Then it takes that location i clicked at and form a preset sized pixelsearch box around it.

Posted Image

The gray dot would be a point i clicked at on my screen.

The red square would be the preset sized pixelsearch box that gets made around it.

I hope i explained it well enough for someone to understand.

As always, any help on how to do this is greatly appreciated. :)

Hi shadowbladex,

Doing a search of your topic, it's been found many times with the search feature or is listed as a non-descriptive topic.

Please do a search before posting new thread topics.

And please use descriptive topics so that others that do use the search feature may also find what they are seeking.

(You'll also find that using descriptive topics, will get people in your thread that know how to answer your questions, those same people ignore non-descriptive topics).

Thanks.

Func test()

        Sleep(100)
    WEnd
    $pos=MouseGetPos()
    $ps=PixelSearch($pos[0]-$width/2,$pos[1]-$height/2,$pos[0]+$width/2,$pos[1]+$height/2,$yourcolor)
EndFunc

Oh thats awesome thanks!

Could you explain a bit on how "$ps=PixelSearch($pos[0]-$width/2,$pos[1]-$height/2,$pos[0]+$width/2,$pos[1]+$height/2,$yourcolor)" works?

How big will this make the pixelsearch box? What numbers correspond with the size of the box?

$width is the width of the box and $height is the height of the box so if

$width=100 and

$height=100 then the box will be 100x100 pixels (50 pixels up,50 down,50 left,50 right)

if $width=40 and $height=80 the box will be 40x80 pixels (40 pixels up,40 down,20 left and 20 right)

cheers :)

Keep in mind that Pixel Search always searches the specified rectangle in a

1. left-to-right then

2. top-to-bottom

pattern until it finds a pixel matching the specified <colour> to within <shade-variation> tolerance.

That left to right, top to bottom hard coded limitation may not always yield the result you are looking for.
