Advanced Screen Snap-Shots

Introduction

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.
