Get text color

Dear all,

is it possible to get color of a string in a field of a desktop application? I see only activity related to color in excel activities but this is standalone application.

Thanks in advance.

But I am on the web page. Not in excel.
I found this IEnumerable < TextInfo > variable type

However, when I type item.color.tostring , I am getting only zeros.

Hello @mario, do you want to take color of some text from a web page, or from a desktop app?
If from web, is it possible to take the take color from the web’s CSS or other attributes?

Hello,

Unfortunately it is a text inside a desktop application such as calculator.

@mario I have created a custom activity for this… let me know if it works for you.

Hi,

unfortunately the position is not always fixed.

You have to get the position using get position activity and pass it as an input to this activity.

@balupad14 Done … thank you

Can you share a screenshot of the element (whose color you want extract) and your flow in UiPath ?

Hi,

Check out the latest update in my ColorDetector Custom activity. Now it has feature to highlight pixel on the screen.
You can use it to adjust the co-ordinate X and Y.
