Is it possible yet to do this? I'd like to pick several points on the screen and get the color from each spot separately.
After declaring your object reference for a color, and setting it, you can use UserAssign
Dim col as New Color
Other than that we haven't got the cool eyedropper feature for vba yet, even though we've asked a million times. You'll have to do it directly using WinAPI.
I'm not trying to assign a color, but pull one from a bitmap based on a set of coordinates. It doesn't seem like it should be so hard to do. This would open a whole new level of macros.
Thanks for the confirmation, at least I know to stop looking for now. :)
Hi Sub GDG_John( ),This thread is from years ago, and i hope you are still active on the forum.So the release of the eyedropper is here.... and i was wondering if you ever gave this a go again?" b = ActiveDocument.GetUserClick(x, y, Shift, 10, False, cdrCursorEyeDrop)"I am racking my brand with this....I have managed to pull the CMYK values from a filled object; and then i can create a textbox next to this with the given CMYK from the "userclick" x, y co-ordinates but I cannot figure out how to sample directly from a bitmap / image.If you have some insight on this it would be great it you could share!Thanks.Keith.
Have you tried using the Document.SampleColorAtPoint method?
After using GetUserClick to get x,y coordinates of a point?
