    Snapshot of Screen

    Hello

    How can I create a Snapshot of the Screen (Screenshot) by Java ME Code?
    Important thing is, that it should work on all Java ME Clients.

    Thanks

    If you mean capturing the whole screen content with a j2me app, then you cannot do it (a Symbian C++ application would be better suited for this task)

    Not natively. A possible solution could be to use a "mixed" approach (like starting a Symbian helper application running as a local server and accessing its funcionalities via local http requests), but they're maybe more complex than just writing a Symbian C++ app from scratch.

    Note also that this approach does not work on majority of the phones - this is only possible on phones which allow native applications installed as well (like Symbian based OSes). On Nokia Series 40 phones, for example, screen capturing is not possible.

    Why do you need this? If you just need screenshots of some application for user manual for example, you could run the app on a emulator and take scree captures from there...
