HTTP Upload - Own Image Uploader RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've never worked with Visual Basic alot, so I was thinking if someone could help me create a quick screenshot uploader, which would uses my PHP image uploader,

    My PHP part works the way that it sends a file from an input, which's name is "attached" -> upload.php which then moves the uploaded file onto the server, and returns the uploaded image link on the html page, inside textboxes,

    My question is if it would be possible to make one that takes a screenshot, uploads it and gives you the uploaded image URL to your clipboard right after hitting the key,

    Also, is it possible to only take a screenshot of the active client window? such as a java applet.
