    How Would You Make A Screen Capture Program?

    I'm trying to figure out a way to make something that would do the same as pressing the 'Prt Scrn' button and pasting it to something like a word document or photoshop, or just saving it saved as a .jpeg in a certain file directory. It takes too long to do it all by hand- and sometimes i have to capture multiple screens one after the other and it takes forever. It's been boggling my mind for some time. Thanks

    Well which OS and compiler are you using?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I'm running Windows 7 and I could do it on either Bloodshed or Visual Studio.

    Sorry, I don't do win32 programming - but I've moved the thread to where more experienced win32 programmers will see it.
