      How to capture screenshots programmatically in html5/javascript app.using html webview i can capture webpages but i wanna take screenshot to save images on workingset in my application.this is for save and save as options.

      is there any possibility to use RenderTargetBitmap class in Windows runtime component using c# or will it support only xaml elements.

    any help would be appreciated

  • RenderTargetBitmp is Xml only. It cannot be used in an HTML app and there is no analogous HTML/JavaScript class to directly render controls.

    That said, you can save a canvas to bitmap and you may be able to render your HTML elements to a canvas. I haven't tried any of these libraries and don't know how complete or up-to-date they are.

  • No. That sample doesn't do screenshots. You need to already have the image before using the sample.

  • No, you can facilitate the Screenshot functionality of Windows programmatically. For privacy reasons.
