Hey Guys,

I want to display the client window but when I use _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd it captures the border and title bar and everything with it. Im trying to find coordinates of things relative to that client but I cant get it relative to the client becasue the window border is imaged too. I found a previous topic on the forums but the question was never answered. Any ideas?

This is how I changed the example within the help file:

Func Example()
    Local $hGUI, $hBMP, $hBitmap, $hGraphic, $hImage, $iX, $iY, $hClone, $fileloc=@ScriptDir&"\SOMEclient.bmp",$iLeft,$iTop,$iRight,$iBottom,$bCursor

    ; Create GUI
    $hGUI = GUICreate("GDI+", $ClientSize[0], $ClientSize[1])

    ; Initialize GDI+ library

    ; Capture 32 bit bitmap
    ;$hBMP = _ScreenCapture_Capture("")
    $hBMP = _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd ( "" , $hSOMEclientWin ); MY AUGMENTATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    $hImage = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hBMP)

    ; Create 24 bit bitmap clone
    $iX = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage)
    $iY = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage)
    $hClone = _GDIPlus_BitmapCloneArea($hImage, 0, 0, $iX, $iY, $GDIP_PXF24RGB)

    ; Save bitmap to file
    _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFile($hClone, @ScriptDir & "\GDIPlus_Image.bmp")

    ; Clean up resources

    ; Draw bitmap to GUI
    $hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromFile(@ScriptDir & "\GDIPlus_Image.bmp")
    $hGraphic = _GDIPlus_GraphicsCreateFromHWND($hGUI)
    _GDIPlus_GraphicsDrawImage($hGraphic, $hBitmap, 0, 0)

    ; Clean up resources

    ; Shut down GDI+ library

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
EndFunc   ;==>Example

How do you know what the client window is?

You can enumerate all open visible windows, search for client window and pass the handle to _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd.

#include <Array.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>


Func GetAllWindow() ;code by Authenticity - modified by UEZ
    Local $aWin = WinList(), $aWindows[1][4]
    Local $iStyle, $iEx_Style, $iCounter = 0
    Local $i, $aWinPos

    For $i = 1 To $aWin[0][0]
        $iEx_Style = BitAND(_WinAPI_GetWindowLong($aWin[$i][1], $GWL_EXSTYLE), $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW)
        $iStyle = BitAND(WinGetState(HWnd($aWin[$i][1])), 2)
        If $iEx_Style <> -1 And Not $iEx_Style And $iStyle Then
            $aWinPos = WinGetPos($aWin[$i][1])
            If $aWinPos[2] > 1 And $aWinPos[3] > 1 Then
                $aWindows[$iCounter][0] = $aWin[$i][0]
                $aWindows[$iCounter][1] = $aWin[$i][1]
                $aWindows[$iCounter][2] = $aWinPos[2]
                $aWindows[$iCounter][3] = $aWinPos[3]
                $iCounter += 1
            ReDim $aWindows[$iCounter + 1][4]
    ReDim $aWindows[$iCounter][4]
    Return $aWindows
EndFunc   ;==>GetAllWindow

      The _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd() logic may have an issue in v3.3.14.3.  I was testing scripts using v3.3.14.3 and saw that the scripts' screen captures weren't getting created.  I immediately ran the scripts using v3.3.14.2 and the screen captures were being created as expected. The _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd() function, in v3.3.14.3, returns @error = -2. 
      Can anyone else confirm that they are seeing the same issue?
      Below is a slightly modified version of the function's help file's _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd() example that should allow you to recreate the issue.
      #include <Constants.au3> #include <ScreenCapture.au3> Example() Func Example() Local $hGUI ; Create GUI $hGUI = GUICreate("Screen Capture", 400, 300) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) Sleep(250) ; Capture window _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd(@TempDir & "\GDIPlus_Image.jpg", $hGUI) If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "", _ "_ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd() failed." & @CRLF & @CRLF & _ "@error = " & @error _ ) Exit 1 EndIf ShellExecute(@TempDir & "\GDIPlus_Image.jpg") EndFunc ;==>Example
