Thanks but what if i want to print something more complicated like a window with say a picture and few input boxes or sliders etc.

Probably take a screenshot of the window,save it and print it out?

That's the best choice to cover everything. Just make sure you use the correct file type to save it to and then use code similar to what I gave you above.
