I need to be able to get the colors of pixels in another application's window. Currently i use the GetPixel API in my vb app and this works quite well. The problem is that GetPixel fails if the window your getting values from is minimised or covered etc. Does anybody know how i can get pixel color values from another window even if it is minimised? i have been searching for ages for a better way than Getpixel but no luck yet.
