Hi Everyone, I am using this code to try and take a screenshot of the entire screen:

Log("TakeScreenshot activated")
       ' Take a screenshot.
      Dim Obj1, Obj2 As Reflector
  Dim bmp As Bitmap
  Dim c As Canvas
  Obj1.Target = Obj1.GetActivityBA
  Obj1.Target = Obj1.GetField("vg")
  bmp.InitializeMutable(Activity.Width, Activity.Height)
  Dim args(1) As Object
  Dim types(1) As String
  Obj2.Target = c
  Obj2.Target = Obj2.GetField("canvas")
  args(0) = Obj2.Target
  types(0) = ""
  Obj1.RunMethod4("draw", args, types)
  Dim Out As OutputStream
  Out = File.OpenOutput(File.DirInternal, "Screenshot.png", False)
  bmp.WriteToStream(Out, 100, "PNG")
    ToastMessageShow("Screenshot Captured", False)
But this code takes a cropped screenshot. It does not include the title and status bar. Also I am used a tabbed application, so it does not take a photo of the tabs either.

You can just draw them. The title bar and the tabs will not change anyway so you can first take the screenshot, draw manually the titlebar on a different panel then add the screenshot then draw the tabs on the bottom and take a screenshot of that panel...
