I have gone to a non-Aero theme with square borders and using the Active window works for the dialog boxes. With the standard Aero theme on it still takes a picture bigger and keeps the faded out edges, which I don't want.

For all other windows I can use the Windows object capture and that works.

Much appreciated for your help.  :) :)

This is what you get with active window capture.

Good call on the Delphi part, it's not owner drawn though, it's just the normal dialog with pictures on the buttons (but I did have a Windows theme on for the square borders).

Here is a shot from Excel 2010, back on the default Aero template of Windows, with the same behaviour.

I can't take a screenshot, but when the red selection box comes up for a "Windows object" it is inside the frame already, so it's not even considering the edge of the dialog box as something worth taking a photo of.

One thing I am wondering if SC can do - can you take an image using the region that's bigger than the dialog box, and then have SC automatically trim out the whitespace until it hits the borders, and then save only that as the screenshot? I always take the shot on white. That would work around the problem.

Currently what I have to do is capture the bigger area, go into paint, move the item to the corner and shrink the right hand side, which is a lot of work for hundreds of screenshots.


Screenshot Captor / Capturing borders on dialog boxes on Windows 7
« on: August 09, 2015, 11:01 PM »

I have a problem capturing the borders on dialog boxes on Windows 7. Aero theme (I tried another theme to add square borders hoping that would fix the problem, but had no impact).

The attached image shows the problem.

The top part is the actual dialog box.

The second part is the result of capturing a Windows Object. I have drawn a black border around the captured area (it is padded with white space).

Windows Snipping Tool and all other tools I have tried have the same problem when capturing the dialog box, I was hoping that there would be a setting that would work in the options, but none of the Aero sttings I tried helped.
