This example shows how to save a JPEG file of your graph when clicking "Take a Screenshot" button.
This example is generating random data and outputting it to a chart. When clicking the boolean Take a Screenshot you are able to save the Chart Image to a JPEG at that point in time. A File Dialog window will open for you to save the JPEG image. If you would like to save the image as a different extension you can replace Write JPEG File.vi with any other write function in the Graphics Formats Palette (Functions Palette >> Graphics & Sound >> Graphics Formats).
Steps to Implement or Execute Code
Additional Information or Reference
The program continues to run after you take the screenshot, so you can take multiple images of data throughout a test.
