Screen Capture Browser Window Only

6 posts in this topic

I'm having a blast capturing images of IE using AutoIT.

_ScreenCapture_Capture("C:\blap\" & $alarmName)

 However I only want to capture just the browser window...not a region, not the whole screen (which includes my Windows start menu and other icons).  Is there some switch that says only capture immediate window?

Thanks!

this is subetley become more clear to me 

Im trying to accomplish the same thing and have a slight issue with defining the window I want to use

I thought it might work the same as controlclick where I could define $handle as the destination but I think my application is incorrect

I understand the basis of what this script is doing but when I look at the page this is posted as an example for it itemized and explains everything except the entire gui function

so basically the changes I made

insert a variable definition to be used as a target for the screen capture

changed the function name to screencap

set the save path to d:\test\test

changed what I thought was optional coords

 

I get an error regarding line 18

$handle = WinGetHandle( "Test" )

Sceencap()

Func Screencap()
    Local $hGUI

    ; Create GUI
    $hGUI = GUICreate("Screen Capture", , )
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
    Sleep(250)

    ; Capture window
    _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd(D:\test\test.bmp, $handle)

    ShellExecute(D:\test\test.bmp")
EndFunc   ;==>Example

I'm not sure what error you're getting, but you're missing several quote marks around your strings.

ok by my logic which is not very fluent this should 

include screen cap

get a variable $handle

insert that variable as a destination window for screencapture

and save the capture to d:\test\test.bmp

 

 

#include <ScreenCapture.au3>

$handle = WinGetHandle( "test1" )

_ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd("d:\test\test.bmp", "$handle")
