VB.net to copy Project timline to jpg/gif file

I'm working with project 2013 and visual studio 2013.  I have vb.net code that opens a project containing a timeline chart I've built.  I want to copy the timeline image programmatically to a static image file.  Anyway to do this in vb.net?

Thanks!

Don't know about VB, but if you can see the image, you can save it.
Capture the Screen, or the window where the timeline is displayed.

Here is a solution (a class) for this: http://www.developerfusion.com/code/4630/capture-a-screen-shot/

If I run a macro I get this:

Sub SaveTimeline()
' Macro SaveTimeline
' Macro Recorded Fri 3/13/15 by Talbott, Taylor W..
    TimelineExport ExportWidth:=600
End Sub

How can I do "TimelineExport" in vb.net?

        myApp.FileOpenEx("filepath.mpp")
        myApp.Visible = False

        myProj = myApp.ActiveProject

        myApp.ViewApply("Timeline")

        myApp.TimelineExport(False, 940)

        Dim oDataObj As System.Windows.Forms.IDataObject

        oDataObj = System.Windows.Forms.Clipboard.GetDataObject()

        Dim oImgObj As System.Drawing.Image = oDataObj.GetData(System.Windows.Forms.DataFormats.Bitmap, True)
       
        oImgObj.Save("C:\Users\ttalbott\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Content\Default\testing.jpg", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg)

        myApp.FileCloseAllEx(False)
        myApp = Nothing
