// Identify the color of the pixel (15, 25)
// in the Image control named "IMG_Drawing"
ResColor = dPixelColor(IMG_ImageDrawing, 15, 25)
Syntax
<Result> = dPixelColor([<Image>, ] <X coordinate> , <Y coordinate>)
<Result>: Integer
Color of the specified pixel in RGB format.
Caution: the value returned may differ according to the display configuration (resolution, ...).
<Image>: Optional control name or optional Image, WDPic or picLayer variable

Remarks

Coordinates

Coordinates are given in pixels with respect to the top left corner of the image (coordinates: (0.0)).
To retrieve the position of a mouse click in an Image control, use MouseXPos and MouseYPos.

How to retrieve the components of the color?

To retrieve the components of the color returned by dPixelColor:
  • To get the red component, use RGBRed (or perform a division modulo 256 of <Result>),
  • To get the green component, use RGBGreen (or perform a division modulo 256 of <Result>/256),
  • To get the blue component, use RGBBlue (or perform a division modulo 256 of <Result>/256/256).

Using the drawing functions

The drawing functions can be used according to 2 methods:
  • Method 1: Using dStartDrawing
    • dStartDrawing must be called before any other drawing function. dStartDrawing is used to define the element (Image control or variable) to which the drawing functions will be applied.
    • When drawing on an Image control:
      • The drawing functions operate on a copy ("bitmap") of the image. You can use the drawing functions of Windows (via API or CallDLL32) but these functions must use the DC (Device Context) returned by dStartDrawing.
      • dEndDrawing and dStartDrawing must not be called in the same process.
        The drawing will not be displayed if dEndDrawing and dStartDrawing are called in the same process: it will be automatically erased.
  • Versions 24 and later
    WindowsLinuxJavaUser code (UMC) Method 2: indicating the drawing target directly in the syntax (via a parameter)
    The <Image> parameter is used to specify directly the target of the drawing. dStartDrawing becomes useless. This function must be deleted.

dPixelColor, Zoom and automatic scrollbars

The option "Zoom and automatic scrollbars" available for an Image control is not compatible with dPixelColor. If this option is used on the Image control, the display performed by dPixelColor is fixed in the control. The zoom and the scrollbars are also fixed.
