Getting image from handle

Recommended Posts


Hi, I am trying to capture an image by its handle.. im just wondering if its possible (if the window is hidden)

I tried playing around with the helpfiles but i cant seem to get what I wanted.

Im still new to GDIPlus but here is what i came up with (doesnt work) but I think it could give you an idea of what I am trying to do.

#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GDIPlus.au3>
Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1)
Func _Main()
    Local $handle, $hGUI
$handle = ControlGetHandle("Window", "", "[CLASS:Frame; INSTANCE:1]") ;Handle to a control with image(Hidden window)
    $hGUI = GUICreate("GDI+", 400, 300)
    _GDIPlus_Startup ()
_GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImage ($hGUI, $handle, 200, 250)
    Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    _GDIPlus_Shutdown ()
