Make a screenshot of a form...
function FormularScreenShot(Bmp: TBitmap; h : hWnd): Boolean;  
var  
  TheRect: TRect;  
  TheWidth, TheHeight: Integer;  
begin  
  with Bmp do try  
    GetWindowRect(h, TheRect);  
    TheWidth  := TheRect.Right - TheRect.Left;  
    TheHeight := TheRect.Bottom - TheRect.Top;  
    Width := TheWidth;  
    Height := TheHeight;  
    BitBlt(Canvas.Handle, 0, 0, TheWidth, TheHeight, GetWindowDC(h), 0, 0, SRCCOPY);  
    Result := True;  
  finally  
    ReleaseDC(h, GetWindowDC(h));  
  end;  
end;

If you set bScan value to "1" you get the active window. To get the whole screen set it to "0":
keybd_event(VK_SNAPSHOT, 0, 0, 0);

Open in new window


VOID WINAPI keybd_event(
  __in  BYTE bVk,
  __in  BYTE bScan,
  __in  DWORD dwFlags,
  __in  ULONG_PTR dwExtraInfo
);

If that's not what you meant please could you explain you want.
