Capture Application Window

The Capture Window feature allows you to visually capture states at any point in a test and export them as PNG files to a specified folder. These images are larger and with higher quality than what is presented in the Storyboard.

This article demonstrates how to add this type of step into the test and use its properties.

Add Capture Window Step

Choose the Capture Window option from the Step Builder and click on the Add Step button in the lower right corner of the pane.

Find the Images from Capture Window Step

The images from Capture Window step are generated and stored when the test is executed as part of a test list.


Images from Capture Window step are not stored to disk when the test is executed through the Quick Execution mode. The following message appears in the log: Image not captured to disk. CreateLogFile is set to 'false'.

To store the Window and Desktop Capture images to disk include the test in a test list and edit its settings. Ensure CreateLogFile is enabled and, optionally, specify the output directory for the image captures in the LogLocation setting.
