You can use the ScreenCapture sample to perform a simple screen capture. When you run this sample, you will capture the entire screen; by default, the pointer will not be visible in the capture. You can modify the code to capture the pointer, and also to define a smaller capture area. To include the pointer, make sure that the CaptureMousePointer value is set to "true," as in the following example.
job.CaptureMouseCursor = true;
To perform a screen capture using the ScreenCapture sample
Build the ScreenCapture.csproj and run ScreenCapture.exe.
When you are ready to capture your screen, click Record . The application records and encodes any action that you perform on the screen.
To end the capture, click Stop . The ScreenCapture application saves the encoded capture in the C:\output\ScreenCap folder.
