Print Screen?

7 posts in this topic

Any ideas on how I would build a script to print screen to a file?

Has anything like this been done before?

When you use the Print Screen button the image is temporarily saved to the Clipboard. You would have to open an application, such as MsPaint, and issue a Ctrl + V to paste [convert] to a file type.

Yea..I kinda figured that..is there no way to do this without opening mspaint, and pasting, etc, etc ,etc?

If you say it's saved in the clipboard..then a ClipGet() would reveal it, wouldn't it?

I think ClipGet() is limited to text

LazyCat has a DLL for it...I'll zip a copy of my files for you...I think my test script takes screenies every few seconds...and stops when you hit a certain keystroke...

Writing AutoIt scripts since
_DateAdd("d", -2, _NowCalcDate())
