[webkit-qt] QTWebkit capabilities

Hi Ariya,

I even dried capturing the whole desktop as follows
QPixmap pixmap = 

QString file("file_Trial1.png");
pixmap.save( file, "PNG", -1 );

Though it captures the whole desktop, it didn't capture the flash cotent of the 
rendered web content. Also the web window was not full and had got cropped at 
the top and bottom.

I tried this web page whcihc states it is window less flash.

I was not able to capture the flash content in this page also.

So, does it mean that
- there is no way we can capture the flash contnents using Qt/QtWebKit?
- If yes, it means that off-screen rendering of web content having flash 
(copying it to memory instead of rednering it on to window) is not possibe with 
Qt? Is it? 

Please clarify these doubts. Depending on this I have to look for alternative 
other than Qt for doing my assignment.
Plese do the needful.

I already gave the possible reason why Flash did not show up in the
capture: "That's likely because the plugin is windowed". Painting a
web page using QWebFrame::render only draws everything belongs to the
frame's window. Since the plugin has its own window (e.g. HWND in
Win32), then its content is outside the reach the said web frame.

I suspect that some trick employed in the screen capture utility might
work, e.g. it grabs the entire application window.
