Robot().createScreenCapture() to capture 2nd monitor?

This code snippet takes a screenshot of the screen, however it is noted that whilst I have two monitors, the screenshot is only generated for a single screen. Is it possible to modify the program to take a screenshot of both screens, not just my primary monitor?

I am currently using WinXP SP3.

Have you read the API for Toolkit#getScreenSize(), which you use in your code? It tells you there how to obtain
Multi-screen aware display dimensions


luck, db
There are no new questions, but there may be new answers.

Finally, an actual SSCCE was posted with a question

Unfortunately I don't have access to a multimonitor setup so I can't help. Maybe next time.
