Hi all,
      I have a nice little problem here...
I have a fct. that takes a screenshot of some window on the screen... On my machine, it works perfectly, but on other machines, also working with Win2000 Professional, the bitmaps created are all offseted... so I lose a portion of my image...

???

Can any of you help me... we have to deliver the app soon, and it's the only bug we have...

Are you using Device Independent logic to capture the screenshot. I had the same problem when trying to print a screenshot. I solved it by sticking to Device independent code.
