I want Current window programmes screen to be printed, if user cleicks/presses a button. My idea was to presss ALT+Print Screnn (which will save the current window into clip board) and then use printer.paintpicture method to print it.

Can we save the current window in clip board using any API of DLL functions ? (i.e without pressing ALT+print Screen)

they're not all the same :O)

and for some extra sourcecode for exact this question

http://www.thescarms.com/vbasic/Capture.htm

"Capture the entire contents of a form.
Capture the client area of a form.
Capture the entire screen.
Capture the active window.
Capture any portion of any window.
Create a Picture object from a bitmap and a palette.
Print a Picture object as large as possible on the page. "

that should work
