Diagram snapshot image file location


path = getSnapshotImage(diag,rpt)


path = getSnapshotImage(diag,rpt) takes the snapshot of the diagram specified by the reporter (diag). It creates an image file and returns the path of that file. rpt is the report into which the diagram is added. This method gives you access to the image file so you can place it in specific locations of the report, such as on a title page. By changing the report layout and then adding this image, you can control the image layout.
