Is it possible to get a sceenshot from running an app on the emulator in AVDD?
I want soe 10in tablet and smaller phone screenshots but I've only got a nexus 7, and don't want to rush out any buy lots of new toys just for that.

Thanks.

If you want I cn test it for you. I have:
- Galaxy S4 i9505
- Galaxy Tab 4
:)

EDIT: And if you want to test it yourself, you can download "Bluestacks", it is a good emulator for PC.

Directly from the IDE.

Look at chapter 4.1.5.5 Take Screenshot in the Beginner's Guide.

The Take Screenshot function works also with a device connected via B4ABridge with USB or WlFi, not with Bluetooth.

Thanks, the 'take Screenshot' option whilst debugging on the emulator works, for smaller phone layouts but I get an
'unable to capture screen buffer : null' error when trying 10 inch emulated tabl;ets, with both the nexus 10 setting and the other lower res 10.1in tablet that in AVDD.

I'll give Bluestacks a try.
