Falcon

Take Android screenshots with Falcons bright eye!

Includes dialogs, toasts and all other extra windows in your screenshot.

Usage

// Saving screenshot to file
Falcon.takeScreenshot(activity, file);
// Take bitmap and do whatever you want
Bitmap bitmap = Falcon.takeScreenshotBitmap(activity);

Check falcon-sample and its android tests for more example usage.

Download

Grab via Gradle:

compile 'com.jraska:falcon:2.1.1'

Spoon Compat

Spoon is really great library, but it also does not include dialogs and other extra windows in its screenshots. To keep using Spoon with advantage of Falcon you can use FalconSpoon class.

Usage of Spoon Compat

@Rule
public final FalconSpoonRule falconSpoonRule = new FalconSpoonRule();

@Test
public void awesomeTest() {
  ...
  File screenshot = FalconSpoonRule.screenshot(activity, tag);
  ...
}

Gradle

androidTestCompile 'com.jraska:falcon:2.1.1'
androidTestCompile 'com.jraska:falcon-spoon-compat:2.1.1'

Spoon 1.X Compatibility

Spoon version 2.0 is not released yet, so if you use version 1.X use Falcon 1.0.4.

androidTestCompile 'com.jraska:falcon:1.0.4'
androidTestCompile 'com.jraska:falcon-spoon-compat:1.0.4'

Q&A

Why is Falcon crashing on Android 9 Pie?

You are most likely not using the latest version of Falcon. Android 9 is supported from Falcon version 2.1.0. Some changes were needed since we use some reflection to make the screenshots possible.

Why another screenshot library?

There are plenty of great screenshot libraries, but all of them miss Dialogs, Toasts and other extra windows in Activity. Not this one!
