"If the user popped up another window and it covered an existing win-
dow and then made the overlaid window disappear, the application window that
was covered is now corrupted and will need to be repainted. (The graphics system
does not save the pixels underneath."
Core Java Volume 1 (8th Ed) p.296

What if I need to remember the exact layout, as in take a screenshot or a sequence of screenshots (video)? Is it possible to do this programmatically?

I found a working example of taking a screenshot at this link., now I need to create a timer that takes screenshots every so often, for which I was thinking of using the Timer class, to capture screenshots.

Then I would re-arrange the pictures so that they fit a video format (e.g. MPEG, AVI), am I in the right direction?
