Hi All!

I am trying to lay some objects (text fields, graphics, etc.) over a browser widget. I am essentially just taking a screen capture and then layering the objects on top of the image. Here is my script:

on mouseUp
lock screen
put the rect of current stack into tCoord

set the width of image 1 to the width of current stack
set the height of image 1 to the height of current stack
set the topleft of image 1 to 0,0
export snapshot from rect tCoord to file specialFolderPath("documents") & "File1.png"
set the visible of widget "browser" to false
set the filename of image id 1008 to ""
wait 2
set the filename of image id 1008 to SpecialFolderPath("documents") & "File1.png"
-- I believe i needed the three previous lines to get this to work for some reason???
show image id 1008 with visual effect dissolve slowly
unlock screen

end mouseUp

This works fine on my Mac, but when I test it in the iOS simulator it does not work. Is it not possible to take a snapshot of the browser widget in iOS?

Thank you!
