Do you want to make a "screenshot" of a flex-application from within Flex?

Well I have to tell you that this will not be possible.
Flex can only acces WebCams. If you want to access a scanner, you will need to acces the TWAIN adapter of a Scanner that is installed on your system. This can only be done by using Signed Java Applets or an ActiveX Control. If you use the Applet approach you should be able to use the Flash ExternalInterface to communivate with a JavaScript function in your HTML wrapper and in this you could access the Applet. But I have to admin that this would be the only solution I currently could immagine.

Here's a link to an Applet TWAIN control:
