How to take screen shot of pega screen

Hi All,

I would like to take screen shot of the screen before submit the work form. Once I get the screen shot , I have to attach with an email and have to send it to some one else. We have an option in PEGA application document generate wizard to create an application document with use case screen shot. Could any one have idea about how we can implement the same in norm flow runnning.

You can also use the ScreenShot Attachment type. It will require the OCX on the users desktop to take the screenshot.

Thanks for your response. It has to start once user clicked the submit button in the work form. Could any one of tell me how we can do this.

I have tried with java code which is taking screen shot but its only taking the actual screen but its not taking the full work form in the screen.

Dimension screenSize = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();

Rectangle screenRectangle = new Rectangle(screenSize);

Robot robot = new Robot();

BufferedImage image = robot.createScreenCapture(screenRectangle);

But I just need the emtire form in the screen . The above code is not taking full form if form having scroll bar in screen.

Any updates on this? 

Can Pega Robotics (Formaly known as OpenSpan) be used for this?
