hi guys i want to create a website[local] and one of its abilities must be taking screenshot from desktop (desktop of pc where IIS is running, totally i mean serverside desktop), you should say why serverside , answer is , i want to see my desktop from my mobile device when im downstairs to see if downloads are finished or not :D
i use this code in asp.net page in codebehind
int screenLeft = SystemInformation.VirtualScreen.Left;
int screenTop = SystemInformation.VirtualScreen.Top;
int screenWidth = SystemInformation.VirtualScreen.Width;
int screenHeight = SystemInformation.VirtualScreen.Height;
using (Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(screenWidth, screenHeight))
using (Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(bmp))
g.CopyFromScreen(screenLeft, screenTop, 0, 0, bmp.Size);
MemoryStream ms2 = new MemoryStream();
IMG.Src = "data:image/jpg;base64," + Convert.ToBase64String(ms2.GetBuffer());
when running from visual studio , its ok , it takes screen shots, but when i published website to local host its showing this error
