The filename to use for the picture. Default is "image" with the extension matching the image type.
Returns image for storing in container.
DescriptionTakes 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.
