I haven't used OpenGL before, but here is how I print a screenshot of a window:


        private void Print()
        {
            PrintDocument printDoc = new PrintDocument();
            printDoc.PrintPage += new PrintPageEventHandler(printer_PrintPage);
 
            PrintDialog printForm = new PrintDialog();
            printForm.Document = printDoc;
            printForm.UseEXDialog = true;
            DialogResult result = printForm.ShowDialog();
            if (result == DialogResult.OK)
            {
                printDoc.PrinterSettings = printForm.PrinterSettings;
                
                printDoc.Print();
            }
            
            //removing event handler so object will properly dispose
            printDoc.PrintPage -= new PrintPageEventHandler(printer_PrintPage);
            printDoc.Dispose();
            printForm.Dispose();
        }
 
	void printer_PrintPage(object sender, PrintPageEventArgs e)
        {
	    UserControl screen = this; //replace this with wherever your OpenGL window is
 
            using (Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(screen.Width, screen.Height))
            {
                screen.DrawToBitmap(bmp, new Rectangle(0, 0, screen.Width, screen.Height));
                e.Graphics.DrawImage(bmp, 0, 0);
            }
        }

Open in new window
