Hi friends,
I have designed a page, kindly a dashboard which is driven internally with JSP and ajax, some html tags, tables etc, This page includes flash charts "swf" files.
I need to take a snap shot of the complete webpage by using JavaScript , i am stuck up here for the snapping of whole page, is there any way to proceed with javascript api ? so that i can take the snap shot of the whole webpage and save as a PDF (Adobe) file or a JPEG ?

Please Assist,

Why can't the user use the screenshot facilities that is built into the operating system?

You would have to use an applet or some other clientside language that has the ability to do it. I do not know how to do it in those languages so I am no help there.
