GeneralFixing the region PinsussWon Huh24-Oct-04 22:15 

First of all I was quite impressed of the interface of your source!

Nice work! Smile | :)

I just wanted to know one thing though..

Is it possible to fix the width while capturing? (something like region capturing, just that the mouse's width will be fixed after once clicking to make the square for capturing area)
I tried to add couple of functions but the DLL somehow seemed to do everything
so I couldn't get my hands into it

Could you pull me some hands out for me to do this job?
