Obtain the Context Help Window Image ?

Hi all,

OK, so I am trying to programatically get / save the image from the context Help Window. I have been reliably told that there is a private method for doing this. I assumed by "private" that it would be a scripting method but I can't find it. Anybody got any other information on how I can get this image ?

So far I am having to save the icon image and a list of input / output terminals. No quite what I was after.

Best Regards

Chris

I wouldn't know of such a private method but that doesn't mean it couldn't exist. However not finding such a method would probably prompt me to go about capturing the help window content using WinAPI calls.

If any of those kind folks from NI are reading on this , would they be prepared to comment ? (or even better, wrap the private method in a vi and post it )

I'm happy to discuss my use case if anyone can help.
