Snapshots Tutorial

Complete: 3

Responsible: IannaOsborne


Basic Concepts

The event display can automatically produce snapshots. The snapshot service produces a raster screen resolution PNG format file for each window in the MDI workspace. The file name is unique. The snapshot file has a .png extension and a corresponding ASCII file with the same name has a .date extension. The latter contains complimentary ASCII information: a date/time stamp and a window name. The files are produced in current working directory.

This snapshot service can be enabled either from the "Event"->"Auto Print" menu or as an untracked bool VisAutoPrint = true/false configurable parameter of VisConfigurationService in the configuration file. The time delay between the snapshots is set by an untracked uint32 VisPrintTimer = 30000 configurable parameter.
