The revBrowserSnapshot command takes a snapshot of the page currently being displayed in the specified browser object.

The variableName should be the name of a declared variable. This means that before calling revBrowserSnapshot a variable to place the image data into should be declared using the local command.


  • instanceId: The integer identifier of a browser object.
  • variableName: The name of a variable to place the resulting image data into.
  • The result: The revBrowserSnapshot command puts empty into the result.
