My Greetings to everyone here...

I have developed a free-hand drawing application which is going to be a part of our project in our Company. I am facing an issue while trying to get an Image out of the SurfaceView I have used.

Its not like that the Image is not being written, but the Image which is written to sdcard is totally black. No drawing which was drawn onto the SurfaceView area just before saving is coming.

I have used getDrawingCache() on SurfaceView object but all in vain.

Can someone please help me out of it.

Thanks in advance.
