Taking Screenshots

Another nice feature that POSE offers, in addition to helping you test and debug your program, is the ability to take a screen capture, or screenshot, of any POSE screen. This can be very helpful in creating program documentation, or in giving visitors to your Web site a sense of what your application looks like.

To take a screenshot, simply run your application in a POSE session (or run any application whose screen you want to capture). Then right-click on POSE to bring up the POSE system menu, and choose Save Screen. After giving a name to the saved screen image, POSE will then store a Windows Bitmap (BMP) containing a perfect 160x160 image of your screen.

Note that the captured screen does not include the silk-screen graffiti area, nor does it include the POSE skin. If you want to capture those areas, you can use the tried and true "print screen" technique to capture the screen to a bitmap, and perform editing/cropping from that point.
