Description

The FontCollection.Colors property lets you get an IntCollection object that represents a collection of colors to be used during character recognition. Individual colors in this collection must be specified by the corresponding integer values. For instance, you can use the color constants defined in the BuiltIn object, which are available in the Code Completion window. These constants have the cl prefix (e.g. clAqua). For a list of predefined color constants and instructions on how to calculate custom color values, see the Working With Colors topic.

JavaScript, JScript

function ColorsExample()
{
  // Specifies the object to get access to
  var Obj = Sys.Process("notepad").Window("Notepad", "Untitled - Notepad", 1);
  // Creates an OCR object
  var OCRObj = OCR.CreateObject(Obj);
  // Creates a color collection for the specified object
  var ColorsOptions = OCRObj.CreateOptions;
  var ColorsCol = ColorsOptions.Fonts.Colors;
  ColorsCol.Add(0xFFFF00); // Aqua
  ColorsCol.Add(0xFF00FF); // Fuchsia (Magenta)
  // ...
  
  // Gets the text of the specified object using the defined OCR options
  OCRObj.GetText(ColorsOptions);
  
}

Python

def ColorsExample():
  # Specifies the object to get access to
  Obj = Sys.Process("notepad").Window("Notepad", "Untitled - Notepad", 1)
  # Creates an OCR object
  OCRObj = OCR.CreateObject(Obj)
  # Creates a color collection for the specified object
  ColorsOptions = OCRObj.CreateOptions()
  ColorsCol = ColorsOptions.Fonts.Colors
  ColorsCol.Add(0xFFFF00) # Aqua
  ColorsCol.Add(0xFF00FF) # Fuchsia (Magenta)
  # ...
  # Gets the text of the specified object using the defined OCR options
  OCRObj.GetText(ColorsOptions)

VBScript

Sub ColorsExample

  ' Specifies the object to get access to
  Set Obj = Sys.Process("notepad").Window("Notepad", "Untitled - Notepad", 1)
  ' Creates an OCR object
  Set OCRObj = OCR.CreateObject(Obj)
  ' Creates a color collection for the specified object
  Set ColorsOptions = OCRObj.CreateOptions
  Set ColorsCol = ColorsOptions.Fonts.Colors
  ColorsCol.Add(&hFFFF00) ' Aqua
  ColorsCol.Add(&hFF00FF) ' Fuchsia (Magenta)
  ' ...
  
  ' Gets the text of the specified object using the defined OCR options
  OCRObj.GetText(ColorsOptions)
  
End Sub

DelphiScript

function ColorsExample;
var Obj, OCRObj, ColorsCol;
begin

  // Specifies the object to get access to
  Obj := Sys.Process('notepad').Window('Notepad', 'Untitled - Notepad', 1);
  // Creates an OCR object
  OCRObj := OCR.CreateObject(Obj);
  // Creates a color collection for the specified object
  ColorsOptions := OCRObj.CreateOptions();
  ColorsCol := ColorsOptions.Fonts.Colors;
  ColorsCol.Add($FFFF00); // Aqua
  ColorsCol.Add($FF00FF); // Fuchsia (Magenta)
  // ...
  
  // Gets the text of the specified object using the defined OCR options
  OCRObj.GetText(ColorsOptions);
  
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function ColorsExample()
{
  // Specifies the object to get access to
  var Obj = Sys["Process"]("notepad")["Window"]("Notepad", "Untitled - Notepad", 1);

  var OCRObj = OCR["CreateObject"](Obj);
  // Creates a color collection for the specified object
  var ColorsOptions = OCRObj["CreateOptions"];
  var ColorsCol = ColorsOptions["Fonts"]["Colors"];
