I was wondering if someone could help. I'm developing a project that requires a screen capture to be made and saved as an image.
I am coding in ASP and have no budget (as it's for a charity). I have searched high and low for a component to perform the screen capture but cannot find anything.
Does anyone know of a component that works like below:
1. I feed it a URL
2. It goes off and performs a screen capture of the URL
3. The screen capture is saved as a file.
Not sure if you have any .NET knowledge, but you can do it with about 3 lines of code.
dim wshell, intReturn
set wshell = server.createobject("wscript.shell")
intReturn = wshell.run ("URL2BMP [parameters] ")
set wshell = nothing
However, there's a major memory leak in the component that has yet to be addressed. if your site does heavy amounts of thumbnailing, your server will need to be rebooted frequently.
