Capture a window's screen

Hi,
How can I capture a window's screen and save it as a bitmap if I only know the caption of that window?
(ie. similar as pressing Alt-PrintScreen in Windows)

Instead of using stretchblt, bitblt would be more appropriate.
BitBlt(Image1.Canvas.Handle,0,0,Image1.Width,Image1.Height,
winDC,0,0,SRCCOPY);
