Re: [QF-Test] Unlimited screenshots in Qftest 2.0

Hello Venky,

currently screenshot will only be extracted from the run-log during
report generation. Until then they are still stored as part of the
run-log, so unlimited screenshots are not yet an option. However,
splitting run-logs into various parts is already partly implemented
and should become available some time after the 2.0 release. That will
remove the memory issue.

Creating and saving screenshots from scripts should be possible with
today's QF-Test 2.0 Release Candiate, though it's not officially
documented. You can try the following in an SUT script (untested):

imageHelper = rc.access.getImageHelper()
data = imageHelper.pngEncode(imageHelper.grabScreenshot())
# now data is a byte array that just needs to be saved to PNG file, e.g.
from java.io import FileOutputStream
fos = FileOutputStream("myimage.png")
fos.write(data)
fos.close()

Best regards,
    Greg
