If the meaning of your question is "capturing a screenshot of the application" (as previous comment), then you may use this function:
private static void CaptureScreen()
{
    String FileName = @"c:\temp\screenshot.jpg";
    using (Bitmap screenBmp = new Bitmap((Int32)SystemParameters.PrimaryScreenWidth,
                                            (Int32)SystemParameters.PrimaryScreenHeight,
                                            System.Drawing.Imaging.PixelFormat.Format32bppArgb))
    {
        using (Graphics bmpGraphics = Graphics.FromImage(screenBmp))
        {
            bmpGraphics.CopyFromScreen(0, 0, 0, 0, screenBmp.Size);
            BitmapSource bmpSource = Imaging.CreateBitmapSourceFromHBitmap(
                                                screenBmp.GetHbitmap(),
                                                IntPtr.Zero,
                                                Int32Rect.Empty,
                                                BitmapSizeOptions.FromEmptyOptions());
            BitmapEncoder bmpEncoder = new JpegBitmapEncoder() { QualityLevel = 20 };
            bmpEncoder.Frames.Add(BitmapFrame.Create(bmpSource));
            using (FileStream fs = new FileStream(FileName, FileMode.Create))
                bmpEncoder.Save(fs);
        }
    }
}

Open in new window

In that case, you will need to enumerate your devices using WIA or WPD (for Vista and later).
In the past I used to develop code for both Twain and WIA, but I preferred to buy a 3rd party component (sorry, can't remember the name).
You may check here for a modern solution.

I hope this can help.

I tried the example in codeplex. But I am not sure what else I need to added and how it will work. Please check this http://easywebcam.codeplex.com/

It is compiling but not working.Please let me know what else I need to add for the above example I used. I am testing it in Windows 7.


Thanks
