Description Author

This class can take screenshots of Web pages using GrabzIt and return them as images, tables or PDF documents.

It can send a HTTP request to GrabzIt API Web server to request that the service takes a screenshot from a given page.

When the page picture taking request is sent, several options can be configured like the browser window size, the resulting image format, if it should use the mobile version of a web page, if only part of a web page should be captured, and a callback URL that will be accessed by the GrabzIt service when the page picture is ready.

Then the class can send a new request to the GrabzIt API to request the page picture image file when it is ready.

GrabzIt 2.2

This library allows you to programmatically convert web pages into images, PDF's, CSV's and spreadsheets. Additionally GrabzIt allows you to convert online videos into animated GIF's.

Its usually best to place these package files in their own directory.

To run the sample

Open config.php and change the three parameters to match your settings the first two parameters can be got from
the third parameter is the location you have placed the GrabzItHandler.php on your website.

$grabzItApplicationKey = "APPLICATION KEY";
$grabzItApplicationSecret = "APPLICATION SECRET";
$grabzItHandlerUrl = "";

Ensure your application has read and write access to the "results" directory.

Finally run the index.php to start converting web pages.
