How to simulate Print screen button using selenium webdriver in Java?

Software TestingAutomation TestingSelenium Web DriverJava

We can simulate a Print screen button with Selenium. The screenshot is captured with the Print screen button. Capturing a screenshot is a three way process. It is an important step towards failure analysis.

We shall convert the driver object to TakeScreenshot interface.

Syntax

TakesScreenshot s = (TakesScreenshot)driver;

Then, with the getScreenshotAs method we shall have an image file and copy that file to a location with FileUtils.copyFile method.

Syntax

File sp=s.getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE);
FileUtils.copyFile(sp, new File("path of image file"));

Example

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.OutputType;
import org.openqa.selenium.TakesScreenshot;
import org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils;
import java.io.File;
public class PrintScreenSimulate {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver",
      "C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Desktop\\Java\\chromedriver.exe");
      WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm");
      // screenshot capturing
      File src = ((TakesScreenshot)driver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE);
      FileUtils.copyFile(src, new File("logopage.png"));
      driver.quit();
   }
}
