I have a mobile device application in C#.  I would like to show our users some screens from the app without showing them the running app.  On desktop Winforms app I would simply press the Print Scrn button and paste into an email or any other app that allows images to be pasted into.  How do I do this on the mobile device.  I tried doing it via the emulator but the emulator fails on our call to our web service (the device works with the web service fine)  I will accept a solution that fixes the emualtor issue as that will allow me to print screen

Cheers

How do I check it?  Please note the web service is on localhost.  My device code uses my PC's IP to connect to the web service

Damn!! that was so simple.  alol I had to do was double click on the program on the desktop.

I will look at bhagavan2uday's link in my own time.

Mikal613, good job.  I downloaded a few days ago 2 other free screen capture programs but I failed to install them into the device.  I am really low on the knowledge of how device and desktop are connected.  I am now worried how I will install my app on my user's device but I will come to that.

Points split  Mikal 350 for solution and bhagavan2uday 150 for input and link.  Fair?
