[GC] Capture offscreen image [message #449003] Mon, 17 January 2005 16:35

Hi !

I use this piece of code to capture shells or widgets and display the
image created in my app.

private static Image snapshot(Composite bean) {
GC gc = gc = new GC(bean);
final Image image = new Image(null, bean.getBounds().width,
gc.copyArea(image, 0, 0);
return image;

Now that all works fine, I put the shell or widget to capture offscreen
(setLocation (-100, -100)) and what do I get ? A blank snapshot (or a
half blank / half widget snapshot if widget's width is more than 100).

So It seems that shells are not drawn when not on screen. Or are they
invisible ? Or do you have to use another method that GC.copyArea to get
capture ?

How can you make offscreen captures ?
