Subject: Re: How can I save a paintbox into a bitmap file
In reply to: Carlos Ramírez 's message, "How can I save a paintbox into a bitmap file" on 00:28:40 05/15/00 Mon

Hi Carlos,

The easiest way to transfer images from one type of component or class to another is usually to search for a Canvas property in both objects. For example, to transfer the contents for a paint box to a TJpegGraphic,

JpegGraphic := TJPegGraphic.Create;
ifTrueColor, nil, 0, 0 );
JpegGraphic.Canvas.Draw(0, 0, PaintBox.Canvas );

For the minimize and scroll box problems I am not sure what is wrong. Also, I think you made the right decision to draw an a TPaintBox rather that a TImage as the refreshes will be faster.

Best regards,
