Hi to all,

under win98/Win2000 i want save screenshots in BMP-Files.
It is just necessary for HighColor and TrueColor.

the first part is clear, but how to write the bmp ?

HDC dc, bdc;
int w,h;
HBITMAP hbm;

w=800;
b=600;
dc=CreateDC("DISPLAY",NULL,NULL,NULL);
hbm=CreateCompatibleBitmap(dc,w,h);
bdc=CreateCompatibleDC(dc);
SelectObject(bdc,hbm);
BitBlt(bdc,0,0,w,h,dc,0,0,SRCCOPY);
DeleteDC(dc);
DeleteDC(bdc);

but can i save this bitmap ?
or must i change it into a DIB ?

thanks
