Source example for capturing a screen capture of a WPF Window

Richard Cunday asked:

Open original thread
Currently I am using the White API to control a WPF application, but the White API has no functionality to generate a bitmap image of the current window for which it is generating UI events for. So, I am looking for some example code where I can take a snapshot of an external WPF window running in a separate process (application under test) passing in an UIAutomationClient.AutomationElement. So far, I have only managed to find screen capture source examples for GDI screen capture applications where they will not capture the image of a running WPF application. Any suggestions on where to look is greatly appreciated.
