Hi Rob,

Thank you for your reply. I wonder if this is the only way? I mean using the Robot class createScreenCapture method with Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit
().getScreenSize(). I am just wondering. Anyway, thank you for your comment or I wouldn't even get to know the Robot class can capture screen shot.
