Hi dears.

I have a form that with some content that I want to allow my users to save as a bitmap or jpeg. I have a Save button that when the user clicks it, like to take a snapshot of that form content (without border and controlbox) and have a Save File Dialog open up that allows the user to decide where they want to save the file.

Please explain your solution,i'm new in C#.

And what have you tried?
Where are you stuck?

What about Set border to 0 and ControBox to False just before save it. Set border to 1 and ControlBox to True after saved it. I assumed that you're windows forms developer.

Hope it helps.

Good idea
I had the same problem.Here is what I did:

1)Put Everything inside a panel

2)Use Code:

private void SaveToImage(string FilePath)
     Bitmap a = new Bitmap(panel1.Width, panel1.Height);
     panel1.DrawToBitmap(a, new Rectangle(0, 0, panel1.Width, panel1.Height));

A generic error occurred in GDI+.

I don't know why that error occurred, but I have forgotten that code I wrote was to save panel in case it's docked. I've changed code so that panel doesn't have to be docked, and tested it, and it works on my pc.
