Take a snapshot part of canvas in javaFX


Question

I need to save some part of canvas to image that is from x1 > 0 and y1 > 0 to some x2 > x1 and y2 > y1. What I understand from javaFX API, snapshot must occupy a whole area of node, like

wim = new WritableImage(((int) width), ((int) height));
bufferedImage = new BufferedImage((int) width, (int) height, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_ARGB);
parameter = new SnapshotParameters();
parameter.setTransform(new Translate(0, 200));

and then

node.snapshot(parameter, wim);
image = SwingFXUtils.fromFXImage(wim, bufferedImage);
Graphics2D gd = (Graphics2D) image.getGraphics();
gd.translate(0,200);
ImageIO.write(image, "png", file);

Hej Mohammad,

i made a small example for you with hard coded width and height for the WritableImage, maybe this will help you. I put a ChartBar on the Stage and take a snapshot of it, when the button is clicked.
