Advanced Screen Snap-Shots


Capture Hooks

This program introduces some interesting concepts behind screen-capturing. It allows the user to define the area of the screen that they wish to capture and then captures it to a standard VB picture box.

Capture Window

This is a VB5 project (should also work in VB6 and possibly VB4 32bit), which will run under Windows 9x. No other than basic VB-controls are used.

YOU CAN LEARN: How to provide nodes to define a angular zone.
               How to access the desktop device content.
               How to replace the CommonDialog Control with API

COPYRIGHT: None. I made the code myself and everybody is free
           to use it.
