I do not own Hypersnap nor any other screen capture because it seems there is no program out there that can do what I describe below in the original forum post. After I created that post I continued my Google searches and The closest program I could find is. http://download.cnet.com/...0-2192_4-10660661.html
However It turns out that although the above program can (hide the borders and show multiple images on the two monitors
) the individual images it is showing in its multiple occurances of itself can not be brought to the front by a keystroke control program (I am assuming this is because it is not yet windows complient - It has no install process and no registry entry records). The other problem with it is I can not issue a command like this
Dim MyAppID, ReturnValue
MyAppID = Shell("C:\WINDOWS\system32\mspaint.exe " & strPath, vbMaximizedFocus)
to get at the image and the program for the external control program that will later bring the individual selected images to the front of the screen. I can bring up the images with it only by opening the program over and over and doing a file open process (way too slow to make it practical).
What is all this for. It is to create a market trading training screen which can control these snapshots (multiple snapshots) of anything. So it is not a simple slideshow but rather all sorts of images being controlled by the control program but they must not have borders. In other words the images must look exactly like the original program looked like which was used to create the screen shot.
Someone may be tempered so suggest a video capture of the screen but this is not realistic because the images (situations) are hypothetical creations.
So the question is "will hypersnap have this ability soon and if not might there be a program that does which I could not find with my several hours of google searching?"
Original request on another forum.
Is there any program that can display a snapshot image of a screen which is in file format (bmp or png or jpg or any file type) such that there is no border that can be seen (such that it looks exactly like the screen that was the source of the snapshot). For example a snapshot image of IB’s TWS.
In addition to the above it needs to be able to;
**size it to the exact original size (better if this can be done after the border is removed so that it is easier to get the correct size)
**to be able to grab it and move it anywhere on the screen (better if this can be done after the border is removed)
**to be able to have more than one of these snapshots showing such that it looks exactly like a real trading setup in a multi monitor setup.
**The snapshot images can be overlayed on top of each other at times (an external program will control which one moves to the front).
**Lastly it must be possible to edit the file (if need be with a different program).
Programs that can NOT
do this include MS-paint brush, MS photo editor, MS Picture and Fax viewer. MS-paintbrush is the best but still shows the border.
