ScreenShot capture to email, Capx + Tutorial

Show us your works in progress and request feedback

I had a request by someone who had seen my tutorial on sending an email in C2, if, and how it would be possible to take a screenshot within C2 and send it to an email address, with no plugins.
I had had trouble with this in the past, with it being a bit complex.

But I think I have finally come up with an answer, it involves :-
Sending data from C2 to a php script which in turn stores the screenshot on your server, then sends the picture to the email address chosen.

Now I need to broadly test it, which is where you come in ! Hopefully

If generally successful I will share a tutorial with all the necessary files.

So To test just click on the link below and then click the button to take the screenshot, then don't forget to fill in your email address, then click send.

Then you will have to wait to receive the email, could be between 1-15 mins.
Then please Let me know if it was successful.

The test has a random number of pigs displayed at random angles, so each grab will be unique.

Update.

Tutorial and capx can be found here.

Im sorry but after 30 min i receive anything.

Btw i will be happy to see how you do that and it would be a nice feature for my app, and if it can send video files it would be amazing.

If i receive the email i will edit my post.

Strange, I have only tested in Chrome myself and that seems to be working for me, thanks again.

@sizcoz I thinks it's all about my gmail account, so dont worry.

But btw it doesnt work with chromium but i dont really make good test. (Like verify every setting etc...)

It worked with firefox 5/5 but the phishing security of gmail alert me.

Have a good day.


@LaurenceBedford I thinks a capx doesnt mean anything with his method... I thinks it's just a simple Ajax Post and the website make everything.
