Printing a scrolled program..

Hello there.

I want to print a screen-capture objects that sits inside a scroll-box. I can take the forum's Canvas, and take the rectangle of the scrollbox, but if not all the object is being shown in the box, I need to access it somehow else.

-What do you mean only a part? If it's bigger then the printer page, it'll be cropped. If you want to stretch it, than paint it first on a bitmap, and then stretch it to the printer page - better with something like StretchDIBits...
