Re: ScreenShot

Charlie,
I know that sinking feeling when something has gone disastrously wrong.

Re: ScreenShot

Charlie, Got get-iplayer 3.26 working on all computers i.e. Ubuntu Bionic (problem there was I had somehow disabled the Universe Ubuntu repo. When I re-enabled the Ubuntu Universe repo (which caused an update of 2 other packages), it then worked using Jon Davies' ppa) , RaspberryPi with Raspbian Bus...

Re: ScreenShot

get-iplayer not working on my 3 computers with Ubuntu Bionic gets ever more mysterious. I've now installed get-iplayer (from SourceForge as version 3.25) on Windows 10 running in VirtualBox. I've also installed it on my RaspberryPi (under Raspbian Buster). get-iplayer then worked OK on both. Putting...

Re: ScreenShot

Steve, Thanks for the feedback. I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Desktop 64bit. Jon Davies (get-iplayer maintainer) says that it works OK with Ubuntu Focal which he installed in VirtualBox. As I previously said get-iplayer used to work OK but it stopped working I guess about a month or two ago. I have ...

Re: ScreenShot

Charlie, have also been working on this. I think your life would be a lot easier if you used the gb.Desktop component. The details of the open windows, their location and size details are all there for the taking. Just find the open window you want and PictureBoxMain.Picture = hWindow.GetScreenshot(...

Re: ScreenShot

Charlie, I had a reply, on Gambas User Lists, from Benoît this morning. He said: It means that you have to do: Object.Lock(MyDrawingArea) instead of: MyDrawingArea.Lock() So using this method (after removing coding to have a form emulating a MsgBox), that app is now working properly. I'll now be abl...

Re: ScreenShot

I've emailed Jon Davies (shown below in a text format as not able to attach as eml or txt extension) about problems with get-iplayer (name when installed using snap) / get_iplayer (name when using using Ubuntu repos or launchpad ppa). I've used snap, so iRecorder invokes get-iplayer. I've uploaded l...

Re: ScreenShot

Charlie, I tried your program. It did not explain that I needed to install 'get-iplayer'. All I got was a message that the directory did not exist. I installed it but I couldn't get a program to play. The program said it had finished playing after a couple of seconds. I tried it on TV and Radio but ...

Re: ScreenShot

Charlie, I tried the Observe object method I alluded to previously. It didn't work due to a quirk (I've forgotten the details: a conglomeration of senior moments), I've had no reply from anyone (on the Gambas Lists) re the problem with Lock & Unlock.. I don't know if Benoît has looked at that postin...
