Hi,
I have JTabbedPane which has 2 tabs. First tab component has one labels and JTabel and second tab components has 2 Jtables. I wanted to store the runtime Frame as a image when save button is clicked (Similar to file save option). I saw on many tutorial they have icons of runtime Frames. How can I achive this?
Thanks,
padma

There are other ways, but the simplest is to use the Robot class to get a screen capture and use the new ImageIO classes to save the image.

This may be overly simplistic, but if you just want a .jpg of a screen shot and don't need it generated programmatically... on a Windows machine with the screen active, press "alt-Prt Scr" and a copy of the active window will be saved as an image to your clipboard. Then you can simply paste it where ever you want it.
