Screen capture library for Angular. Define a zone and it will capture it and return a string containing a base64 PNG.

In this tutorial, we will learn how to take a screenshot of a web page using Angular. We can write our own JavaScript code to capture the screen. However, it is a time-consuming process. We have a predefined library to do this task in Angular. That is the ngx capture library. One of my clients needs to take a web application page as an image(screenshot) and send it to multiple people. I tried using plain JavaScript. It was not successful. I met many errors while doing this task. And I found the ngx capture. This saved my time. I thought to share this with you guys. It may be very helpful for someone who needs this.

So the process is very simple and straight forward.

  1. Define an HTML tag as a root element.
  2. Capture all the elements as an image inside the root element using the ngx capture library.

That’s all. No other extra work. It output a base64 png image. You can save this on your server if you want.

Let’s see how to do this in a step by step example.
