    Screen capture prog

    Well I can't draw to save my life and all those sprites online have this format that I can't seem to read. So out of frustration I wrote this. When you hit enter it takes the current picture displayed in your window and sends it to the clipboard, where you can do whatever you want with it. Feel free to change and or update as you want,

    Just press the 'PRINT SCREEN' key and Windows will do the exact same thing!

    'PRINT SCREEN'... open MS Paint... Edit->Paste... tada!

    (sorry, but you just re-invented the wheel )

    Yes, however that is the entire screen. I was going for a more exact size. BTW, this isn't a bragging prog, my apologies if it seems that way. Just something I thought some other people could put to use, at least the base code of anyway.

    It is true that print screen alone copies the entire screen, however if you hold down the alt key and press print screen, whatever object has focus will be copied to the clip board. Hope this helps!
