I've a html page that has a canvas on it. I'm trying to convert canvas to image. Actually it works when its on local IIS server.
However , it doesnt work when i run it as a independent hmtl file. When i debugged it on google chrome i get following exception.

var strData = oScaledCanvas.toDataURL("image/png")
Exception : Uncaught Error: SECURITY_ERR: DOM Exception 18

I guess, canvas has some security restrictions.
My question is , how can avoid this exception ?
Or how can i convert canvas on local html file to image ?
