I want to make a screenshot of my application. I use JVBridge to make the JAVA code.
I want to know in which view my gideros application is ?

public TakeScreen(Activity self) {
View rootView = self.getWindow().getDecorView().findViewById(android.R.id.content);

File imagePath = new File(Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory()+ "/screenshot.png");
FileOutputStream fos;
try {
fos = new FileOutputStream(imagePath);
rootView.getDrawingCache().compress(CompressFormat.JPEG, 100, fos);
} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {

} catch (IOException e) {


Where Activity self is my app Activity

Thank you

    Hello @jeromegsq
    I think that it won't work that way, because Gideros is drawn on GLSurface, and all you will see there is empty GLSurface.

    Unfortunately I don't remember how to fetch exactly needed view, I think what you are getting is the parent of what was set as setContentView

    But I would suggest trying Media plugin to get a screenshot, it should be included in All Plugins folder in latest builds
