The above mentioned package is not available in the latest version. Me too looking for capturing the entire page rather than the visible area.


I have successfully captured an entire webpage using FireShot browser plugin. Its works fine on Chrome and Firefox. If you don’t have this plugin added to your browser, then you have to do it first. Pls find below the steps to capture the entire web page as an image. You can get the entire web page as a PDF file as well.

Pls find attached the code.SaveWebPage.xaml (12.5 KB)

Hello, I have recently tried your custom activity for full web page screenshot. It’s nice and simple. However, it does not capture some web sites. I am trying https://www.gsaadvantage.gov site - This is a public site. I can capture some other .gov page. what’s the root cause - why it does not work? I need this working for this page very badly. could you please advise. thanks and appreciate in advance.

I tried your’s but not working. I think the problem is switching to Chrome app page. I have tried changing it - still not working. I need this badly - I would appreciate if you look at it and post a new one.
thanks a lot.

Can you share the workflow?

Hey - I’m surprised to know that the activity is working. Regarding your issue, may be because the URL is being redirected, try entering the redirected URL.If
you still want to go with the activity (not with chrome extension), I think there is also a solution somewhere in the forum to get the redirected URL programmatically(using http request activity).

Attached is the latest package I have with me. Good Luck!

WebScreenCapture.Activities.2.0.1.nupkg (8.3 KB)

Great! Thanks for the updated package - I appreciate it. I will first try with this package with IE. I had never done anything with URL redirection - any information would be helpful. Once again, thanks for looking into this.

I just tried it - getting the same error - enclosed below:


Source: Save Image

Message: Save image failed. Check if the file name is a valid path

Exception Type: UiPath.Core.ImageOperationException

An ExceptionDetail, likely created by IncludeExceptionDetailInFaults=true, whose value is:

at System.Activities.Runtime.FaultCallbackWrapper.FaultWorkItem.Execute(ActivityExecutor executor, BookmarkManager bookmarkManager)

Here is the XAML - thanks.

Few things:

  1. Looks likes you are still using old version ( I guess 2.0) .
  2. You did not provide output to the activity because of that you got above error.
  3. This activity doesn’t have to be inside open browser.
  4. Use redirected URL i.e https://www.gsaadvantage.gov/advantage/main/start_page.do

It worked - thanks a million for updating the version - I greatly appreciate it. I was able to capture the screen. My intention was to capture a search page but this site blocks it - so technically it works - not sure why it gets blocked when running through activity. Once again, thanks.

Can anyone let us know how to put the downloaded custom plugin to the Uipath Package Manager?
Coz though we copied the lastest version of the webscreencapture plugin it doesnt show up any such activity :frowning:

KIndly do your needful. Thanks in advance.

Can u please let me know why am i am unable to download your plugin?
I am facing some issues “Retrying ‘FindPackagesByIdAsyncCore’ for source ‘https://platform.uipath.com/nuget/activities/FindPackagesById()?id=‘WebScreenCapture.Activities’&semVerLevel=2.0.0’.
An error occurred while sending the request.
The remote name could not be resolved: ‘platform.uipath.com’”
NU1801: Failed to retrieve information about ‘WebScreenCapture.Activities’ from remote source ‘FindPackagesById’.

I have no clue as what is the solution for this?
