How can I get a function that will return the image just for a specified area from my form?

<b>I don't wish a function that will snap all form as GetFormImage and then to BitBlt in my bmp.</b>

I wish a function that will detect my controls from specified area and then to render these in my bmp. And as BONUS :) to skip (ignore) painting my vcl (TTest ) in the bmp if is in this area.

Try this!

var
  Bitmap: TBitmap;
  MySrc, MyDest: TRect;
begin
  MySrc := Rect(10,10,100,100);
  MyDest := Rect(0, 0, 100, 100);
  Bitmap := TBitmap.Create;
  Bitmap.Width := 100; Bitmap.Height := 100;
  Bitmap.Canvas.CopyRect(MyDest, Form1.GetFormImage.Canvas, MySrc);
  Bitmap.SaveToFile('c:\test.bmp');
  Bitmap.Free;
end;
