Website screenshots component/program RRS feed

    Hi all.

    Is it somehow possible to make a component/program, which can load a specific URL and capture a screen shot of the site.

    My own ideas ran out, when thinking about how to capture a screen shot without actually showing it somewhere?

    Any ideas how to make this?

    The only way I know of is to create a Windows Forms app, embed the Internet Explorer control into it, and take a screen grab from there.

    Cheers,

    Hey Wim

    Ok.. just as I thought.

    I can easily make the form and load the browser, but do you have an easy way to take the screen grab?

    Bob Powell has a good article on the subject.

    See: http://www.bobpowell.net/capture.htm

    You would not need a handle to the desktop, but to your form (this,Form1.Handle) instead.

    Cheers,
