Description

Takes a screenshot of the area used by the webviewer.
The plugin offers several methods. WebView.RenderImage works fine on Mac, but not always on Windows. WebView.RenderPDF is Mac only. So especially for websites with flash or other content which can't be printed, the screenshot method is the best one.
(older versions before 5.2 would have an unused extra parameter before ImageType)
Windows only supports JPEG as type.

Added iOS support for version 8.5.

On Windows may get wrong rectangle if Windows runs desktop with 200% resolution, but you have a 100% resolution screen.

Examples

Store screenshot in container:

Set Variable [$image; Value:MBS("WebView.Screenshot"; "web")]
Set Field [Anlagen::My Container; $image]
