Create screenshot from DIV in LWC

There are some ways to take screenshot from div in javascript but in LWC, we need to modify to make it LWC compatible.


First write html as follows



in JS you need to import html2canvas.js. you can download this js from this location.




using printDiv function we can create screenshot and display on the page.

Remember we can display image on Canvas as well, but in my case I was getting blurry images on canvas, so instead on canvas i displayed it on img tag.

Hi do you have screen shots of this HTML2CANVAS in action on the LWC? When I copy your example I get an error: [0 .default] is not a function


Do you have any recommendations on how to overcome this?

your static resource reference is the same name as the method, change import HTML2CANVAS from '@salesforce/resourceUrl/HTML2CANVAS';


to


import HTML2CANVASref from '@salesforce/resourceUrl/HTML2CANVAS';
and then
loadScript(this, HTML2CANVASref).then(() => {
		console.log('html2canvas loaded');
	});
