    Use WinAPI functions OpenClipboard(), CloseClipboard(), GetClipboardData() to deal with clipboard. You'll probably need to work with bitmap then.

    A n00b needs more help here:


    #include <windows.h>


    int main()
    {
    OpenClipboard(NULL);
    GetClipboardData(CF_BITMAP);


    return 0;

    }

    What now?

    1) I would write smth like this:
    Code:
    HBITMAP hBitmap = (HBITMAP)GetClipboardData(CF_BITMAP);
    2) Do you know what MSDN is?
    If you have any questions first look through some articles there:http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/default.aspx

    Well, then I advice you to try to look what's there in the bitmap handle. Output it to window.
    Then find any bmp file format specification in the Internet and write bitmap to a file.

    This is one my question I asked to make sure I know all the methods to access RGB:http://www.codeguru.com/forum/showth...61#post1860961

    By the way I'm also working on a problem related to BMP.
