I need to capture the web page produced by a given browser.  I'll then apply baseline against current imagery to validate content and layout.  I need to screen capture web pages in C# using IE6, IE7, IE8, and Firefox.  I was thinking that ActiveX is the best way to accomplish this.  What do you think?

Are you attempting to capture an image of the rendering to do a pixel by pixel comparison or the underlying code and files returned for the various browsers to check for changes?  Tools already exist to do both, but it is important to know what you're trying to do.

Yes, I'm trying to do a pixel for pixel comparison using each underlying browser.  I'm looking to integrate this feature into Selenium.

Then it seems C# is not a bad choice.

There is a java app called scrender available on SourceForge that takes screenshots using "the system default browser", and I suppose you could either manipulate the registry to cycle through browsers or modify the Java source to use the browsers you prefer.

There are several other capture programs available on SourceForge including CutyCapt for webkit and IECapt for IE. The source code for these is also available so you may find ideas from studying the three programs mentioned.
