    When the user does the "Orange + Sym + P" key combo to take a snapshot, how could I detect that in my app?

    You dont get a flash on your screen like you do with the iphone. As the user said above.. As long as you pressed all 3, you know you've took a screenshot.

    The OP is asking how to programatically detect when the user takes a screenshot. Not visually...programatically (i.e. within the code of an app).

    Exactly, I just need it to trigger a function in my code.

    i don't think there is a way that would pass palm's app review process. for an app i submitted, i use the timestamp of when they press the combo of keys since the filename of the screencapture is appname_YYYY-DD-MM_HHMMSS.png

    so, you have to know the exact second the screencapture is taken. honestly, i guess. i make sure to tell the user that they must push the combo of keys quickly, otherwise it doesn't work. it works about 90% of the time.
