Image Capture in AIR

Image Capture is made easy in AIR. This simple App can capture images from Web as well as the clipboard.  It supports partial Capture as well. This uses Object Handles for partial capture.


Capturing Images from the Clipboard

var g:Clipboard = Clipboard.generalClipboard;

    //if the Image format is not correct
    if( !g.hasFormat( ClipboardFormats.BITMAP_FORMAT)){"No Images on the clipboard!");

    //Drawing Images
    var bd2:BitmapData;
    bd2 = g.getData( ClipboardFormats.BITMAP_FORMAT ) as BitmapData;
    myImage2.source = new Bitmap( bd2 );
