Screenshot of hidden window

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to take a screenshot of a window that is not in view? I was using a script from the forums that would obtain a bmp or jpg, but I don't know how to make a bmp or jpg of a window that the user cannot see.

I was messing around with a flash game collector and would like to incorporate screen shots of the games, but I don't want the user to have to open the game or see it open before they can see the screen shot. Any ideas?

Sure... photoshop :)

Well there is the solution. Apparently you can grab a screenshot of the desktop and superimpose a picture of the hidden app later when you find it.

If window is minimized, it's not possible to get it's image, looks like if window hidden - too. But if this just behind other windows - this can be done with PrintWindow function.

In attach an example of how use it. This was done time ago, it's unfinished, quite raw and messy. Bitmap saving routines are made by eltorro, I'm use them for speedy.

Maybe this give you start point.

PrintWin.zip
