Take a screenshot of your view layout , programmatically!

sc1 sc2

Including in your project

ScreenShott is available in the Jcenter, so getting it as simple as adding it as a dependency

compile 'com.github.nisrulz:screenshott:{latest version}'

where {latest version} corresponds to published version in Download


  • Get bitmap of screenshot

    // View with spaces as per constraints
    Bitmap bitmap_view = ScreenShott.getInstance().takeScreenShotOfView(view);
    // RootView
    Bitmap bitmap_rootview = ScreenShott.getInstance().takeScreenShotOfRootView(view);
    // Just the View without any constraints
    Bitmap bitmap_hiddenview = ScreenShott.getInstance().takeScreenShotOfJustView(view);
    // Texture View
    Bitmap bitmap_textureview= ScreenShott.getInstance().takeScreenShotOfTextureView(textureview);
  • Save the bitmap using the provided helper function

    File file = ScreenShott.getInstance().saveScreenshotToPicturesFolder(context, bitmap, "my_screenshot_filename");

    You can use the file object returned by saveScreenshotToPicturesFolder() to get the file object and then the path of the file saved

    String bitmapFilePath = file.getAbsolutePath();

    Add permission <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/> to your AndroidManifest.xml

    Request the runtime permission for android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE to allow saving the file to external storage.

    .. or save the bitmap with your own implementation

Pull Requests

I welcome and encourage all pull requests. It usually will take me within 24-48 hours to respond to any issue or request. Here are some basic rules to follow to ensure timely addition of your request:

  1. Match coding style (braces, spacing, etc.) This is best achieved using CMD+Option+L (Reformat code) on Mac (not sure for Windows) with Android Studio defaults.
  2. If its a feature, bugfix, or anything please only change code to what you specify.
  3. Please keep PR titles easy to read and descriptive of changes, this will make them easier to merge :)
  4. Pull requests must be made against develop branch. Any other branch (unless specified by the maintainers) will get rejected.
  5. Check for existing issues first, before filing an issue.
  6. Have fun!
