Actually you can put images into Win32::Clipboard but the gotcha is that if your screen depth is set to 32bit and NOT 24bit, the resulting BMP is not valid for most apps.

I have some ugly code to fix 32bit BMPs to 24bit, let me know if you want to see it.

as for the code to put a screenshot into the clipboard, see below

use strict; use Win32::OLE; use Win32::Clipboard; use Win32::GuiTest qw(FindWindowLike GetWindowText SetForegroundWindow + SendKeys); my $ie; my $image; # use existing instance if Internet Explorer is already running eval {$ie = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('InternetExplorer.Application' +)}; die "IE not installed" if $@; unless (defined $ie) { $ie = Win32::OLE->new('InternetExplorer.Application', sub {$_[0]->Qu +it;}) or die "Oops, cannot start IE"; } $ie->{Visible} = 1; # get the handle and use it to force IE to the foreground SetForegroundWindow($ie->HWND); # use send keys # How Do I Maximise The Current Window, Without Using The Mouse? # Press (SHIFT + ALT + SPACEBAR) then press X SendKeys("%+{SPACEBAR}{PAUSE 5}X"); # How do I get a screen grab, use Print Screen to grab entire screen # use ALT + PRTSCR to get current window or dialog NOT screen ! SendKeys("%{PRTSCR}"); $image = Win32::Clipboard::GetBitmap(); # $image now contains your .BMP

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
