I use directinput for the keyboard, and because I set its cooperative level to foreground/exclusive the print screen button doesnt do what it normally do. My question is, what do I need to do to make print screen. Is there a message I need to send to WindProc in order that the print screen operation will occur?

Supposing this were directx that you were rendering with then you can detect the print screen key yourself and then save the backbuffer to a file.

Hope that helps.

I wanted to activate the OS's print screen.
It also stores the data in the clipboard and it should be alot more easier to do.
