HAC built Android apps cannot yet take a screen shot of themselves but its now added to the to-do list.

However, a screen shot can be taken via HAC using the DDMS debugger and saved to your computer:-

1) Make sure your device is connect to your computer either via the USB cable or via Wifi.

2) Run HAC and load your app's project.

3) From HAC's Go menu - launch the debugger using the option Debugger DDMS

4) Run the project on your Android device and get it ready to take a screen shot.

5) On your computer select the running DDMS Debugger.

6) On the DDMS Debugger select the menu Device and the option Screen Capture - a window should appear showing the screen shot.

7) Using the newly opened window to save the screen shot etc or take another one using Refresh option.

I am sorry but I do not have time to answer questions by PM or email.
If you post your questions in this forum then it might help others.
