[archive] Snap shot of a thin client session

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 08 August 2007]

Does anyone know of a way to take a snap shot of a thin client session.

We are running acuconnect on a Linux server and the the thin client on a Windows workstation.

What we want to do is be able to take a snap shot of at least the last window, but if possible a snap shot of the entire session and send it to a file. That file would then be pulled up by a supervisor to do an override function. The way we vision it is the override would have to write the override creditials out to another file so the requesting persons program would be monitoring for that credintial file and accept the override when it is done.

If anyone is currently doing this another way, please fill free to explain.

Thanks,

Consider using W$BITMAP using the WBITMAP-CAPTURE-IMAGE option. You'll see some info using this with Thin client in the documentation

Thanks this should do what we want. I am having a problem when using it in thin client.

I am doing call "W$BITMAP" using WBITMAP-CAPTURE-IMAGE "testfile.bmp".

When I am not in thin client it creates the file using the file name above but in thin client it creates the file but under a system name ex. C06H85~6.BMP

The feature works in thin client mode. The file you refer to is a temporary file that should be deleted. The proper name should be found on the server. If the temporary file is not deleted on the client, this is a bug and should be reported.
