How can I capture the image of an AWT GUI?
Scott StanchfieldThe resulting Image contains a picture of the GUI. Note that if the GUI is not displayes, you either need to display it first or call addNotify() on it to create the necessary peer components.
You can use the printAll() method of Component to accomplish this.
As an example
Component comp = ... ; // the top-level component // you want to capture // create an image for the capture Image img = comp.createImage(comp.getWidth(), comp.getHeight()); // grab a graphics context for that image Graphics g = img.getGraphics(); // print the GUI into that image comp.printAll(g);
