Take the screen shot of your window

Description :


To take the screen shot,Normally we press print screen and copy it into the paint. We can take the screen shot of the window
by using the following program.

Name space used for doing this is follows

using System.Windows.Forms.VisualStyles;
using System.Drawing.Drawing2D;


Following is the code to capture the existing screen of the window

public partial class Form1 : Form
{
private System.Windows.Forms.Panel panel1;
private System.Windows.Forms.Button cmdCapture;
private System.Windows.Forms.PictureBox pictureBox1;
public Form1()
{
InitializeComponent();

}
private void cmdCapture_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
if (pictureBox1.Image != null) pictureBox1.Image.Dispose();
Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Width, Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Height);
Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(bmp);
g.CopyFromScreen(0, 0, 0, 0, bmp.Size);
g.Dispose();
pictureBox1.Image = bmp;
pictureBox1.Size = bmp.Size;
}

}



Following is the InitializeComponent part of the form.

private void InitializeComponent()
{
this.panel1 = new System.Windows.Forms.Panel();
this.cmdCapture = new System.Windows.Forms.Button();
this.pictureBox1 = new System.Windows.Forms.PictureBox();
this.panel1.SuspendLayout();
((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.pictureBox1)).BeginInit();
this.SuspendLayout();
this.panel1.Anchor = ((System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles)((((System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Top | System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Bottom)
| System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Left)
| System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Right)));
this.panel1.AutoScroll = true;
this.panel1.BorderStyle = System.Windows.Forms.BorderStyle.FixedSingle;
this.panel1.Controls.Add(this.pictureBox1);
this.panel1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(8, 8);
this.panel1.Name = "panel1";
this.panel1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(270, 233);
this.panel1.TabIndex = 0;
this.cmdCapture.Anchor = ((System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles)((System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Bottom | System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Right)));
this.cmdCapture.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(169, 249);
this.cmdCapture.Name = "cmdCapture";
this.cmdCapture.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(110, 30);
this.cmdCapture.TabIndex = 1;
this.cmdCapture.Text = "Capture Screen";
this.cmdCapture.UseVisualStyleBackColor = true;
this.cmdCapture.Click += new System.EventHandler(this.cmdCapture_Click);

this.pictureBox1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
this.pictureBox1.Name = "pictureBox1";
this.pictureBox1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(100, 50);
this.pictureBox1.TabIndex = 0;
this.pictureBox1.TabStop = false;


this.AutoScaleDimensions = new System.Drawing.SizeF(6F, 13F);
this.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.Font;
this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(290, 288);
this.Controls.Add(this.cmdCapture);
this.Controls.Add(this.panel1);
this.Font = new System.Drawing.Font("Tahoma", 8.25F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular, System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Point, ((byte)(0)));
this.Name = "Form1";
this.Text = "Screen Capture";
this.panel1.ResumeLayout(false);
((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.pictureBox1)).EndInit();
this.ResumeLayout(false);

}


The code block to run the project is


Application.EnableVisualStyles();
Application.SetCompatibleTextRenderingDefault(false);
Application.Run(new Form1());
