Focal Point Banner


As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

WF8 - Has anyone created an screen-shot of what the user is currently looking at as an image. I have need to be able to let the user click on an image and then generate a screen shot of there current content and then they would like that image placed on a PDF document.

Thanks
Scott

What if you put the content in a Document with a PDF format?

Create a report called car_details.fex and a Document like this should display it in PDF.

ENGINE INT CACHE SET ON
SET PAGE-NUM=NOLEAD
SET EMPTYREPORT=ON


COMPOUND LAYOUT PCHOLD FORMAT PDF
SECTION=Section_1, LAYOUT=ON, PAGESIZE=Letter, ORIENTATION=PORTRAIT, SHOW_GLOBALFILTER=OFF, $
PAGELAYOUT=1, NAME='Page 1', TEXT='Page 1', LEFTMARGIN=0.25, RIGHTMARGIN=0.25, TOPMARGIN=0.25, BOTTOMMARGIN=0.25, $
COMPONENT=IncludeTable_1, COMPONENT-TYPE=REPORT, POSITION=(1.041666 1.041666), DIMENSION=(* *), $
END

SET COMPONENT=IncludeTable_1
-*component_type include

-INCLUDE IBFS:/WFC/Repository/test/car_details.fex
END
COMPOUND END

Not a possibility as they html page is supper complex and they do not want all the data in all the iframes only what they are looking at. Active HTML/PDF is not an option as it is too limited and is not 100% mobile friendly.

Charts have a HOLD FORMAT PNG but not reports. But a PNG saved on disk can then be put into a PDF. It'll be a lot of coding though for a partial solution.

I am aware of that and have done it before but this is a different requirement. and in a scrolling iFrame you do not know what lines the user is looking at that I need a true screen show.

May be an idea to search google and see if there is another option to do a screen capture.

I have used Snipit (a snipping tool) to capture a screen. It is not a WebFOCUS solution, but it does work. I think that SnagIt also would work.
Essentially while your report is displayed open the tool, capture the screen and then paste it to your word or other document.

SnagIt is an end user purchased program.. I think he was looking for a coding solution within his WebFOCUS app.

Hi Gavini,

That was why I made the comment that it was NOT a WebFOCUS solution -- but sometimes solutions are found outside the product --- a suggestion only --- BUT if it can be done within WebFOCUS that would be great!

Vivian et al.

The Snipping Tool is a Microsoft program.
You would have to check if it exists on your WF server (if not copy it to the C:\Windows\System32 directory).
Then create a URL which would run it and make it clickable on the screen.
I don't know if it would then appear on the user's screen and, if so, it would be allowed to save the snip on the user's machine.
It is worth a try.

@GavinL

Do you use HTML2CANVAS ?
I want to test it, but I can't make it work
Should you install anything on WebFocus server ?

I have not seen GavinL active on FP for a long long time. Best to open a case with techsupport on this one.


Thank you for using Focal Point!
