Time for me to be honest

8 posts in this topic

I want to make a program that makes it so that whenever I press the "print screen" button on my computer it will automaticaly save a Screenshot to a predefined location and rename the picture with the date/time. Any tips?

Take a look at HotKeySet() in the help file - this will allow you to make the Print Screen button perform a function in AutoIT. Then in your function, you'll want to use _ScreenCapture_Capture() to take the screenshot, and _ScreenCapture_SaveImage() to save it. There are some other _ScreenCapture functions you may want to use as well.

Thanks a lot for your help. Are all of the _screencapture functions built in? or do I need to download them?

They're built into the latest build.

Good project!

Take a look on Gadwin printscreen... a freeware that does exactly what you want (http://www.gadwin.com/download/)

You will get good ideas on what you can add to your app.
