Capturing a Screenshot in Java (Using AWT)

Image
Taking a screen shot in Java, sounds interesting right. Suddenly, While Searching to internet I came across this.

Here is the piece of code with which you can do this task:

import java.awt.AWTException;
import java.awt.Rectangle;
import java.awt.Robot;
import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;
import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;
import javax.imageio.ImageIO;

public class ScreenCapture {

public static void main(String[] args) {
try {
Robot robot = new Robot();

//The Size of Rectangle is Similar to Screen Resolution.
BufferedImage bi=robot.createScreenCapture(new Rectangle(1280,1024));

//This will write the image to this particular location
ImageIO.write(bi, "jpg", new File("C:/Ashish Docs/ScreenShot.jpg"));

} catch (AWTException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
} catch (IOException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}catch(Exception ex){
ex.printStackTrace();
}
}
}

Don't worry guys the code is working and tested. Here …

Bridging Java and Adobe Air - Merapi

Image
How Exiciting it will be if you can call Java directly from an AIR Application? I got excited when i read first time. And I feel you will also be. So why to wait, here is the solution for it........ Merapi
Merapi: A Bridge between Adobe AIR and Java
Merapi is a bridge between applications written in Java and those running in and created for Adobe AIR™ (Adobe Integrated Runtime™).

Merapi has been designed to run on a user's machine, along with an Adobe AIR™application and providea direct bridge between the Adobe AIR™ framework and Java, exposing the power and overall calabilities of the user's operating system, including 3rd party hardware devices.


With a light weight and straightforward API, developers can leverage the OS by writing Java companion applications for their AIR™ applications. Java programs treat Merapi as a bridge to the running Adobe AIR™ application and vice-versa. How to achieve this is given below:

Finding Postions of HTML Element in a Scrollable Div

Hi Friends,

Have you ever find it difficult to find the x, y coordinates value for a HTML element in side a scrollable div. Just few days back, i got this problem. where i wanted to show tool tip on a link, but since the HTML element was in a scrollable div, the positioning to tooltip was not correct. Here is the code earlier i used to find the X and Y positions:

function findPosX(obj)
{
var curleft = 0;
if (obj.offsetParent)
{
while (obj.offsetParent)
{
curleft += obj.offsetLeft
obj = obj.offsetParent;
}
}
else if (obj.x)
curleft += obj.x;
return curleft;
}

function findPosY(obj)
{
var curtop = 0;
if (obj.offsetParent)
{
while (obj.offsetParent)
{
curtop += obj.offsetTop
obj = obj.offsetParent;
}
}
else if (obj.y)
curtop += obj.y;
return curtop;
}

This function works well when your HTML element is not within a scrollable div. But what if it is present inside…

Removing null or specific values from list in Java

Have you tried to remove null values from a List (may a ArrayList). Yesterday I was trying it out, when I had to remove null values from a List before processing it. Initially, I was trying with the simple for loop and out I was getting Still NullPointerException while processing. I tried with couple of ways, before I came to a efficient one. Lets see this with an example:Lets see what are the flaws, when u try to remove null values from a List with a for loop:List li = new ArrayList();FileListItem fLI = new FileListItem();fLI.setFormFileName("123");FileListItem fLI2 = new FileListItem();FileListItem fLI3 = new FileListItem();FileListItem fLI4 = new FileListItem();fLI4.setFormFileName("456");li.add(fLI);li.add(fLI2);li.add(fLI3);li.add(fLI4);System.out.println("====this.fileList() =====" + li);for(int i = 0;i <>System.out.println("li Size ====" + li.size() + "& Value of i ===== "+i);FileListItem fileListItem = (FileListItem)…
