This plugin aims to be a simple one that implements taking screenshot natively to capture scenes like camera preview or AR views. This cannot be done easily in plain Flutter, at least I cannot make it work using
RenderRepaintBoundary and similar techniques.
The main difference with another packages is that they shows a share dialog. This plugin saves the image and returns the path to it. On Android also launch an updating request (internally) to reload the media library.
You must add
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
Also you need to add a property to
application tag to fix an issue with permissions writing to
If don't add
<key>NSPhotoLibraryAddUsageDescription</key> <string>Take pretty screenshots and save it to the PhotoLibrary.</string>
info.plist file inside
ios/Runner directory, the application will crash.
Import the library:
and take a screenshot:
String path = await NativeScreenshot.takeScreenshot()
In error case the function returns
null and the screenshot path if success.
