Capturing screen into image

Thanks for your help.

I have changed the script to below and it does not work.

set the lockLoc of image "myImage" to false
export snapshot from rectangle (the rect of widget "Browser") to pictVariable as PNG
put pictVariable into image "myImage"
set the width of image "myImage" to the formattedWidth of image "myImage"
set the height of image "myImage" to the formattedHeight of image "myImage"
print card from topleft of image "myImage" to bottomRight of image “myImage"

The image “myImage" on the screen seems to be the same as widget “Browser”
but the print card line of the script shows the grey bar at the top.


Any other ideas please.

Thanks

Terry

If necessary, set the width of the image to the formattedWidth of the image and set the height of the image to the formattedHeight of the image.
