Share a screenshot through the "Share Charm".


win8_share_screenshot(title, description, immediate);

Argument Description
title The title of the image (a string)
description A text description of the image
immediate This flag can be set to true or false to share immediately or not.

Returns: N/A


With this function you can take a screenshot from your game and share it. You should give it a title and a description, then you should indicate whether it should be shared immediately (true) and shown in the slide-out share "charm" or not (false), in which case the user will have to manually call on the share "charm" to see the content.


if keyboard_check_pressed(ord("S"))
   win8_share_screenshot("C.T.H._Screen_" + string(scr_num), "Catch The Haggis screenshot " + string(scr_num) + ".", true);
   scr_num += 1;

The above code will check for the "S" key being pressed and if it is detected it will take and share a screenshot.
