Windows Aero theme and classic theme return different window handles RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to take a snap shot of a window using the window handle returned from GetSafeHwnd.

    The problem is the window handle returned differs in aero theme and classic theme.

    If I take the snapshot in aero theme the top windows over the window being captured are not reflected in the snapshot whereas in classic theme all the top windows also get captured.

    Can someone please provide some insight as to why this difference is there?
