Getting A Screenshot Of Desktop (Whole Screen)

Post by Googie85 » Tue Sep 22, 2020 11:07 am

Hi Guys, me again!!

Is there a way to use "export screenshot" to capture "Full Screen" or do I have to get the measurements of the screen and enter them into the "export snapshot from rect "X,X,X,X" to file "Nav.jpg" as JPEG"?

I hope I explained myself clearly!!

Many Thanks,

Googie.

Hi,

Yes, you may use the screenrect like this:

Code: Select all

   export snapshot from rect (the screenrect) to file "Nav.jpg" as JPEG" 
Works on OS X but should work on windows

All the way from an ancient stack of mine from 2001:

Be aware that with Macintosh, unless you have set your default stack elsewhere this will export a screen snap
into the LiveCode app folder.

Here's the stack.
