Capture windows which are larger than the screen
Authored by: cougar718 on Jul 05, '06 04:58:12PM
I believe you are the one that is incorrect. We are in agreement that the hint claimed that one could "capture windows which are larger than the screen. What you fail to read is the fact the hint also claimed that it will capture the full content (including the stuff which is outside) ...
But it's even better than that: Even if the window is bigger (wider or taller) than the actual screen, the full content (including the stuff which is outside) is grabbed.

Your distinction is incorrect. Comparing a window to a folder is just flat out wrong. Look...

A window is a GUI element and is defined as a new view. The window contains _content_ which is to be viewed . When you close a window, you close the view and prevent the ability to see that _content_.

Content in this case is defined as all objects - text, images, frames, etc. which are a child of that window. Anything that is outside the window - buttons, text, etc., is not part of the contents of a window, but belongs to the window itself.

Given the above, the entire contents of window is not defined only by what is currently visible to the user, but what is not visible as well.

Bottom line: The hint's description is misleading. Instead of saying 'full content', the user should have said full window or window in it's entirety.
