    Exclamation Capture particular part of a form and all controls therein...

    I need to capture an image of a particular part of a form and all of the controls that are visible within the specified region. I've looked here and other places and tried at least 7 different ideas, yet none of them seem to do what I would like. I need to be able to specify the Left, Top, Width, & Height of the region of the form I need to capture.

    Thanks for that, yet I have already been down that road. As specified, I need to capture a picture of a particular region on the form ALONG WITH all of the controls inside that region.

    One way is, first capture all the window and then use PaintPicture to copy just a part of the captured image into a PictureBox.
    To capture a window look here.
    vbExtra: Print preview for VB6, print FlexGrids and more.

    Thanks, Eduardo. That does capture the form as a picture, but unfortunately there is one control it just doesn't want to capture: the Windows Media Player control. I thought at least one type of capture would do it, but it doesn't seem that any of them work. Thanks for the info, though.

    I never captured Windows Media Player so I don't know. I remember that PrintScreen didn't work with it in the old days because it works with DirectX but I think that that changed in newer OS's.
    I hope someone else can help you.

    Did you test with BitBlt?
