Screen capture to clipboard?

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

I’m new on this so patience please. What I’m trying to do is to take screen captures of specific window to the clip board and then using another program (than Autoit) to modify it more. First I tried the !{Screen capture}, but it will need a focus to the window being under capture.

So I made this:

#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#Include <Clipboard.au3>

_Main()

Func _Main()
    Local $hGUI
    Local $hTEST

    ; Create GUI
    $hGUI = GUICreate("Screen Capture", 400, 300)
    GUISetState()
Sleep(1000)
    ; Capture window
    $hTEST = _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd ("", $hGUI)
    ;$hTEST = _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd (@MyDocumentsDir & "\GDIPlus_Image.jpg", $hGUI)
Sleep(1000)


_ClipBoard_SetData($hTEST,$CF_BITMAP)

_WinAPI_DeleteObject($hTEST)


EndFunc   ;==>_Main

But it does not work :huh2: I’m guessing it is not even close.

M23 wrote this little screen capture script, here, which is great and I'm sure you can modify it to your use..

Try this:

;code by UEZ
#include <Clipboard.au3>
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
$err = False
$hHBITMAP = _ScreenCapture_Capture("", 0, 0, 100, 100)
If Not _ClipBoard_Open(0) Then
    $err = @error
    $err_txt = "_ClipBoard_Open failed!"
EndIf
If Not _ClipBoard_Empty() Then
    $err = @error
    $err_txt = "_ClipBoard_Empty failed!"
EndIf
If Not _ClipBoard_SetDataEx($hHBITMAP, $CF_BITMAP) Then
    $err = @error
    $err_txt = "_ClipBoard_SetDataEx failed!"
EndIf
_ClipBoard_Close()
_WinAPI_DeleteObject($hHBITMAP)
If Not $err Then
    MsgBox(0, "Information", "Image put to clipboard!", 10)
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "An error has occured: " & $err_txt, 10)
EndIf
Exit

You can change ScreenCapture_Capture() to _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd(), the result should be the same.

For capturing an area of your desktop you can use this:
