How can you capture drop down boxes in dropped down state

Asked by Charles Burnaford on 2011-02-24

I am trying to capture a screen with a drop down box in the dropped down state in order to show the available choices. Every time I try to capture the screen, the drop down box closes up. The screen is the operatiing system select screen in VirtualBox.

I display the screen of interest. I open the select box. I try to click over to the capture screen to trigger the capture and the select box closes. It is not clear how to trigger a selection capture from the keyboard.

Thanks for the hint, that was something I was looking for as well. Nice videos btw, which tool are you using for them?

Something looks to have gone wrong :), or was that question obvious?

Oh, sorry ;-) I used gtk-recordmydesktop for the screencasts.
