    Cool Desktop screenshots *Resolved*

    I tried making a program that would take a picture of the desktop and set it as the background picture of a form.
    It seems that the form must be loaded and visible for you to set its background picture, and that if you set it using a ascreenshot, then increase the forms size, it only has the screenshot for the section which was its current size.

    Can anyone help me with a program that will take a picture of the desktop BEFORE opening a form, and then set the form's picture to this screenshot?
    I'd prefer if it didn't take a pic, save to hard drive, then open it from harddrive, though if that's the only way, I'd like if someone could do even that.
    Thank you in advanced.

    With which part of the app are you having trouble? The screen shot taking part?

    A few things you want to add though, before you call grabdesktop, you want to add a 'Me.hide'
    then a 'Me.show' after the call
    Later and goodluck
