I am attempting to retrieve screen shots of our application running on a Tourch 9850 using the "screencapture" option in JavaLoader. I receive the following error: "Retrieving screen data ... Error: buffer too small."
Does anyone know what buffer the message is refering to, or how to fix it?

Are you using Javaloader from a 7.0 BlackBerry Java SDK or BlackBerry JDE?
What BlackBerry device software version are you testing on? You can find this under Options, About on the BlackBerry Smartphone.

Have you tried taking the screenshots using the menu in the simulator while it is running in the simulator? That's what I usually do.

I understand. I recommend this product to take screenshots or videos of the real device. There is a free trial and it only costs $36. It is called Remote Control by SOTI : http://www.soti.net/PCProBB/
Hope this helps.

Since you are using 7.0, make sure you use javaloader from the 7.0 BlackBerry Java SDK. Each SDK has its own copy of javaloader. Look in this directory:
Older versions of javaloader will fail to capture a screenshot on the 7.0 devices, which have a higher screen resolution.

Bravo Mr. Sohm .... that did the trick.
I was using the wrong version of the JavaLoader (as I was trying several I feel a bit sheepish that I apparently didn't try v7).
I appreciate your suggestion and help - thank you.
