Hi,

I have a requirement where, I have an HTML page with a submit button. On click of this button an applet should run and it has to take the screen-shot of a Microsoft Paint window or any other MS application window, and then save the screen-shot as .bmp in local file system.

Hard coding is allowed on the Button click. For eg. Open the MS-Paint window with Title = "xyz".

I know how to take screen shot using Applet. But, I don't know how to bring the MS-Paint application in focus using Applet or Java code or JavaScript on click of Submit button? Is this possible or not?

Please help. Its bit urgent.

Seems rather complicated. What does the applet accomplish that hitting the "Print Screen" button (and subseqeunt saving of the image) would not?

Regardless, if the applet is to access the local file system, then it needs to be signed.

Thanks for your reply Tim.
In order to access the local file system (for saving the screen-shot) we have modified the java.policy file with necessary permissions.

I just need to figure out how Java code can bring into focus an already running Microsoft application (MS Paint, MS Word, etc) on click of a button on HTML page.
Is it doable?
