Need some help with rectangle of a bitmap

I need some help with this code that I found on the web.
The code works fine to do a Hardcopy of the complete screen.

But I would like to make a Hardcopy from a part of the screen, size of a rectangle that I would like to add to the code.
But I do not know how to do this, or to change the code.

Thank you for your help.
Best regards,

        // get the device context of the screen
          HDC hScreenDC = CreateDC("DISPLAY", NULL, NULL, NULL);    

        // and a device context to put it in
          HDC hMemoryDC = CreateCompatibleDC(hScreenDC);

          int width = GetDeviceCaps(hScreenDC, HORZRES);
          int height = GetDeviceCaps(hScreenDC, VERTRES);

         // maybe worth checking these are positive values
          HBITMAP hBitmap = CreateCompatibleBitmap(hScreenDC, width, height);
         // get a new bitmap
          HBITMAP hOldBitmap = (HBITMAP) SelectObject(hMemoryDC, hBitmap);

          BitBlt(hMemoryDC, 0, 0, width, height, hScreenDC, 0, 0, SRCCOPY);
          hBitmap = (HBITMAP) SelectObject(hMemoryDC, hOldBitmap);

         // clean up

        // now your image is held in hBitmap. You can save it or do whatever with it

//=========================== Drucken =================================================
       CDC memDC;
       CBitmap bitmap;

       int maxw = pDC->GetDeviceCaps(HORZRES);
       int maxh = pDC->GetDeviceCaps(VERTRES);

       BITMAP bm;
       BOOL ok= memDC.CreateCompatibleDC(pDC);

       //----------------------------- Drucken ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
        pDC->StretchBlt(0,0,6800,4800,&memDC,0,0,bm.bmWidth,bm.bmHeight, SRCCOPY);

Dear Sara,
Thank you for your answer.
Yes, this works.
BitBlt(hMemoryDC, 5,41,10000,415, hScreenDC, 5, 41, SRCCOPY);

note, the destination bitmap should be created with the needed sizes, then.
I think I have to do this, because the rest of the screen/bitmap is black.

I do not know how, can you help me.
pInfo->m_rectDraw.SetRect(0,0,maxw,maxh);<----- here?

Best regards,
Thomas Stockbruegger

        pDC->StretchBlt(5,41,6800,4800,&memDC,0,0,1000,415, SRCCOPY);
This will work
