Hello,

We have some content on a JPanel
As part of our project requirements we have to :
1. Capture this JPanel as an image. How do we do this ?

2. The JPanel has a scroll bar. Is there any way we can capture the entire content (even that beyond the scrollbar) as an image ?
This has to be implemented in Java. If anyone has worked on this could you please provide a solution for achieving the same.

Thanks in advance,

Create an image the same size as your panel, then simply pass the Graphic context associated with the image to the panels paint method:

panel.paint(image.getGraphics());

The image will then contain the contents of the entire panel.
