How can i search a specific area on the screen. Right now i can only do a single pixel or point, but i want to do an area. Can i make a moveable label that takes up whatever image is behind it and then search that label? If yes, how can i make that label separate from the form?
Right now i only have it searching the mouse pointer. I want to have a draggable box that is also resizeable, that shows the border but is clear on the inside, and shows whatever is on the other side, and search inside that box for a specific color and return true if its there. How would i accomplish this?
Create a form with no title bar and set the background to transparent (I believe that someone posted how to do that on this site, you'll have to search). Allow the user to resize the form. Capture the form image (not sure if this will get the background, but it's worth a try. Otherwise you'll have to use GDI to get the screen info).
I made the form(its a square that is transparent), but its not draggable or resizable. Getting rid of the title bar and everything got rid of the ability to drag. I dont know how to capture the image in the form, but i found ActiveForm.BackgroundImage; Can i use that? Also i have no idea how to search the image for a color(i am a noob). I know it has something to do with for statements though.
Ive never had to bump here, but it seems i got overlooked and dropped down the list real far. But overall the response time and help has been phenomenal. I hope someone continues this help though, im still searching for answers myself, but nothing seems to fit my current situation so far that ive found or given me what i needed.
