Capturing pop-up windows

Postby Tim » Fri Jun 16, 2006 9:41 am

The following workaround is for users having problems capturing things that appear on the screen such as tooltips or small popup windows or menus.

This problem can happen on Windows and Windows Vista when it tries to optimize the video display.

1. Exit out of ViewletBuilder
2. Edit the preferences.xml file
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\ViewletBuilder4\preferences.xml

3. Look for a section named <screenshot> should look something like this:
Code: Select all
<screenshot>
    <showSizerHelp>1</showSizerHelp>
    <showBalloonHelp>1</showBalloonHelp>
</screenshot>


4. Add the following entry in the screenshot group
Code: Select all
<captureBlt>true</captureBlt>


For example:
Code: Select all
<screenshot>
    <showSizerHelp>1</showSizerHelp>
    <showBalloonHelp>1</showBalloonHelp>
    <captureBlt>true</captureBlt>
</screenshot>


Its not necessarily a good idea to always leave it on because it may capture things the user doesn't want.
