Selenium WebDriver - Take Screenshot and Partial Screenshot Commands

In Selenium Webdriver we can also capture the screenshots for reference. To capture screenshot in Sleenium 'TakeScreenshot' class is used.

Take Screenshot Command:

/* Create object of File class of Java 
 * And capture screenshot using getScreenshotAs() method of Webdriver
 * Set Output type of screenshot taken as 'File'
File screenshot = ((TakesScreenshot)driver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE);

/* Use FileUtils class of Java 
 * Call it's copyFile method
 * Copy screenshot file to a location with some name and extension you want
FileUtils.copyFile(screenshot, new File("D:\\screenshot.jpg"));
