After reading your post I opened the Delphi 2010 TImage Ribbon demo and found:
– The prompt dialog does not display when using the select area capture function or other similar functions that would display it. Test Result: The prompt dialog or info dialog appears as expected with all capture types that use it. I can not duplicate this.
For example when Show info dialog is true and Cursor is true, and I capturethedesktop… the prompt dialog appears at the top right of the screen.
“The dialog says” Position the mouse cursor then click the left mouse button to capture an image of the desktop and the cursor”
– The capture Polygon (Freehand) function does not appear to work at all. Test Result: Capture Polygon works as expected. I can not duplicate this. In fact I have never seen it not work in any Delphi version.
– The capture object function does not appear display a rectangle around the object that you want to capture.
While it would be good to display a rectangle around the selected object, this is not supported yet. I will try to add this feature.
– The show cursor option does not capture the mouse cursor. Test Result: The cursor appears as expected. I can not duplicate this.
– Setting Auto to FALSE has no effect. Images are still being automatically copied to the clipboard. Test Result: I have a clipboard Viewer that shows the current content of the clipboard.
Here when Auto is FALSE nothing is copied to the clipboard.
When Auto is TRUE the clipboard contains the bitmap. Auto functions as expected with all capture methods. I can not duplicate this.
– CaptureDesktop, SpeedCaptureDesktop, & CaptureWholeDesktop seem to do the same thing.
Now for some more questions:
1. What is your Delphi Version?
2. What is your operating system?
3. Which demo did you run that exhibited your problems?
After writing this I saw that you have some code posted. Unfortunately I can not use your code to test this because you do not have anything programmed to set the various cursor, prompt and other Apprehend properties. My last question… Did you try any of the demo applications? Do they work?
Apprehend was developed mostly with Delphi 7 but I am only running Delphi 2010 now.
I have no plans on installing earlier Delphi versions or supporting any delphi version other than Delphi 2010 or XE2 if I manage to obtain it.
Although I was not able to duplicate your problems, if you provide me with more info I will follow this up with some more testing.
You may contact me directly at email@example.com.
Inorder to compile the example that uses TimageENView you need to obtain the component from here first: http://www.xequte.com/imageen/. What kind of example are you looking for? Apprehend is pretty simple…. all of the screen capture methods just return a bitmap that can be added to any image editor or viewer that accpts TBitmap.
