this should capture the desktop and copy it into a bitmap;

var DTop : TCanvas ;
 begin
  DTop := TCanvas.Create ;
  try
   with DTop do
    Handle := GetWindowDC (GetDesktopWindow) ;
    with bmp.Canvas do
     CopyRect(Rect(0,0,screen.width,screen.height),DTop,Rect(0,0,screen.width,screen.height))
  finally
   DTop.Free
  end ;

Normally you would delete this Q and post dummy questions for the experts you want to award the points to.

In this case just award then to ckaneta :-)
