Screen Capture SDK Libraries

With LEADTOOLS, developers can add advanced screen capture functionality to their .NET (C#, VB), C, and C++ applications that go beyond the standard screenshot capabilities built into Windows. LEADTOOLS Screen Capture can be configured to capture the active window, capture a programmatically specified region, or user drawn region of various shapes. The result can be used with LEADTOOLS Annotations, recognition, image processing functions, and saved as any of the 150+ image file formats.
