WPF \\\ Capture() method on main window does not show expanded dropdown

I have an expanded dropdown and I want to capture its state in a screenshot. I used the method below, but it excludes the dropdown that is open.


The workaround is to capture the whole desktop with a predefined step in Test Studio.

Hi Terry,

It is great to hear that you have a working solution.

Please also check out the code sample that I shared in the forum post, as it might give you a better way to capture the main window with the dropdown.

Does UI testing really fit into CI/CD?

Thankyou for your help.  I ended up capturing just the dropdown window using ActiveApplication.Windows[1].Capture() for now, and our Test Team was ok with using this output.   I will take a look at the whole desktop as another option as well.
