I need to use the PrintWindow API Call to save a portion of a window to a picture box. I have done this so far ( see attached code). Any suggestions?
Dim Hwndwindow As Long
Hwndwindow = FindWindow(vbNullString, "Calculator")
Picture1.Visible = True
Picture1.AutoRedraw = True
Picture1.Picture = Nothing
PrintWindow Hwndwindow, Picture1.hDC, 0

Open in new window
