Snapshot button?

 [1/2] from: robert::muench::robertmuench::de at: 24-Oct-2001 18:32

Hi, I had an idea someone might have implemented already. View has the nice ability to save a layout area as an image. This makes it perfect to create window-snapshots from applications to be included into documents. What I'm thinkin of is: A button, which, when pressed, will create a PNG file from the last active window and give it an unambiguous name. The snapshot feature should be added to existing applications by one line ;-): add-snapshot What do you think? -- Robert M.

Hi Robert, I did something like that with my version of makedoc.r. I wanted it a spec to be viewable in EasyVid format and have the ability to GEN HTML from the same source like makedoc. I had used the a block definition to define the layout tag [layout] ... [/layout] format to define a block that is a EasyVID like layout definition then added a file name to the block definition to specify what %file-name.png it would be. Some reflection tells me that the tag definition was sub-optimal. Maybe something like =layout [ ....layout definiton... ... ] %file-name would have been better. I was satisfied with the results of this part of it but did not get a satisfactory completion on the standardization of all EasyVID control tags to equivalent HTML output. 10/24/01 12:32:25 PM, "Robert M.
