procedure FindAndConnect(Graphic: TBitmap; SourceColor, DestColor: TColor);

type

  TRGB32Array = Packed Array[0..(MaxInt div SizeOf(Integer)) - 1] Of Integer;

  PRGB32Array = ^TRGB32Array;

var

  CurrentLine : PRGB32Array;

  X, Y : Integer;

  StartPoint,

  EndPoint : TPoint;

begin

  Graphic.PixelFormat := pf32bit;

  FillChar(StartPoint, SizeOf(TPoint), 0);

  FillChar(EndPoint, SizeOf(TPoint), 0);

  For Y := 0 To Graphic.Height - 1 Do

    begin

    CurrentLine := PRGB32Array(Graphic.Scanline[Y]);

    For X := 0 To Graphic.Width - 1 Do

      begin

      If (CurrentLine^[X] XOR SourceColor) = 0 Then

        begin

        StartPoint := POINT(X, Y);

      end

      Else If (CurrentLine^[X] XOR DestColor) = 0 Then

        begin

        EndPoint := POINT(X, Y);

      end;

    end;

  end;

  Graphic.Canvas.Pen.Color := clBlack;

  Graphic.Canvas.Pen.Width := 1;

  Graphic.Canvas.PenPos := StartPoint;

  Graphic.Canvas.LineTo(EndPoint.X, EndPoint.Y);

end;



procedure TForm2.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);

begin

  FindAndConnect(Image1.Picture.Bitmap, clRed, clBlue);

end;



procedure TForm2.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);

begin

  Image1.Picture.LoadFromFile('C:\test.bmp');

end;

hi ThievingSix;

with that .bmp, It can connect both lines, but if I will use a graphic bmp file pictures, why it can't

I'll close this post after this and answer;
Actually I'm detecting the persons eye with clWhite to clWhite, but didn't work.
Any suggestion?

Connecting an eye to an eye is much more complicated than connecting two colors on a white background.

First, this doesn't have a color threshold. The white of a persons eye won't always be clWhite (#FFFFFF). .

Second this doesn't have a range threshold either. So if it see's two white pixels next to each other it will connect those two.

The ideal solution is to find a face detection library.

But for something more simple targeting the  two issues above would be:

1) http://www.delphigroups.info/2/7/299790.html - Color Threshold
2) If you're scanning the image line by line (like the function in the last post) on a face, you'll notice color --> white --> color --> black --> color --> white --> color --> white --> color --> black --> color --> white --> color. In this fashion you would detect this sequence in the scanline over the entire image width. You would mark the scanline and if you notice a group of scanlines that are more marked than not you know where the eye's are.
