How can SilkTest be used to take a screenshot?

To take a screenshot using SilkTest, the TypeKeys method can be utilised to invoke the PrintScreen key as seen in the example below.


Google.Typekeys ("<PrtScr>")

Note that this code only shows how to take the screenshot. You will need to decide what you wish to do with the screenshot once you have it. A suitable script will need to be added to either paste or save the screenshot somewhere accordingly.
