      I assume you are referring to the item labeled When btnDemoWebViewer.Click? When I wrote that tutorial I did not post a full set of code – sorry about that.I should re do it. What is – I dragged a Button control from the palette onto the Designer View. Then, I selected the Button with my mouse, and under Components, I renamed the button to “btnDemoWebViewer”.

      Next, go over to Blocks. On the left hand side, you should fine a control labeled btnDemoWebViewer. Click on that and you will see a popup display of events, properties and methods (procedures) for the selected control. There will be one labeled “btnDemoWebViewer.Click”. Select and drag that on to the Blocks editing area – and your done!

    Hello, I need to capture images in the second phone from an online streaming video of first phone and store it in second phone. i need help to create an app for the second phone… plzzz help me…

      My first thought is this cannot be done in App Inventor.

      First, you would have to transfer the data over Bluetooth to the other phone – and that is not fast enough for video. App Inventor does not enable us to access WiFi for the link.

      Second, there is not a way to send an image or video over Bluetooth. That would require accessing the image in binary form and transferring the bytes across a link.

      I do not think this can be done.
