Hello forum,

Is it possible for that by touching a button, you send a screenshot of my game to print?

As if pressed Control + P in my browser

Sorry for my english.

For security reasons browsers can't automatically print. But you can snapshot the canvas (with the system object) and get a PNG or JPEG file which you can then prompt the user to print.

o.o you can use a tool called " snipping tool " from windows. you can search it on the startmanu search bar .


also if you are using chrome there is some apps can do what you want and the most useful one i ever use is : screen capture (by Google).

also you can use the useless way ( click screenshot button in your keyboard, put it on paint or photoshop , corp , save, upload, put links)
