Capturing Aero-child-windows
« on: April 07, 2012, 01:16:19 AM »
Hi mouser,

I think there is a problem in capturing child windows (e.g. settings of firefox) with Aero-transparency when they are in front of their parent-window.

When child windows is in front of its parent-window the content of the parent-window is still captured in the border of the child-window.
When the child window of a not maximized application is positioned over another window (or desktop) the content of this window is not captured in the border.
When the child window of a not maximized application is positioned half over its parent window and half over another window (or desktop) the content of the parent-window is still in the border, the content of this window not.

The black-white flashing works only over the other window.

All my settings for "window capuring 1" and "window capuring 2" are on default, I also tried with a fresh unziped portable screenshot captor.

Bump.

Nobody else who wants to capture e.g. settings-windows with a clean background without the content of the parent-window in the border?

Hm, I think it's a limitation of Windows, not being able to minimize/hide the parent if a modal child-windows is in front of it.
