Your Take a View Screenshot Nativescript Plugin!
npm i --save nativescript-cscreenshot

Nativescript Cscreenshot :camera:

This plugin was created so you can take screenshots of views easily and then store it as you like.

this plugin is based on enchev's NativeScript Screenshot nativescript-screenshot but updated for better stability and angular, vue and react compatibility (still testing vue and react)

Now working in Nativescript 8

IMPORTANT: For some reason I can't test the ios version because of this problem Github, i will appreciate if you can and report this in the issues page.


Use the install command:

tns plugin add nativescript-cscreenshot


Just import the plugin in your project and use it like this

using Typescript:

    import { Cscreenshot } from 'nativescript-cscreenshot';
import { ImageSource } from "tns-core-modules/image-source";

// then in your take a screenshot method
let screen = new Cscreenshot();

// Using vanilla Nativescript
let view = page.getViewById('main');

// Using Angular Nativescript
@ViewChild("main", { static: true }) main: ElementRef;
let view = this.view.nativeElement;

// Using Vue Nativescript
let view = this.$refs.main.nativeView;

screen.take(view, (image: ImageSource)=>{
// Do whatever you want with the returned source image

and in your template

    <!-- Assign the reference name depending on the framework -->
<!-- 'id=""' for vanilla nativescript -->
<!-- '#main' for angular nativescript -->
<!-- 'ref="main"' for Vue nativescript -->
<GridLayout id="main" #main ref="main">
<!-- Content of your app here -->
