Save usercontrol as bitmap

Hello all,

I've got a user control I've created called canvas. Doesn't do much at
the moment.

I've set the background image to a small bitmap using BackgroundImage
and I've set it to tiled using BackgroundImage Layout =
ImageLayout.Til ed.

It all works - I get a tiled image.

What I'd like to do now is save the tiled image (i.e. exactly what I
can see in the window) to disk. The closest I can get is to save the
non-tiled image by referring to BackgroundImage but this isn't much

Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks


Rectangle areaToSave = new Rectangle();
areaToSave = canCanvas.Clien tRectangle;
Bitmap imageToSave = new Bitmap(areaToSa ve.Width, areaToSave.Heig ht);
Graphics g = Graphics.FromIm age(imageToSave );
g.DrawImage(can Canvas.Backgrou ndImage, areaToSave, areaToSave,
GraphicsUnit.Pi xel);
imageToSave.Sav e(fileName, imageFormatToSa ve);
imageToSave.Dis pose();

Nevermind, worked it out.

Bitmap imageToSave = new Bitmap(canCanva s.ClientRectang le.Width,
canCanvas.Clien tRectangle.Heig ht);

Graphics g = Graphics.FromIm age(imageToSave );

PaintEventArgs pe = new PaintEventArgs( g, new Rectangle(0, 0,
canCanvas.Clien tRectangle.Widt h, canCanvas.Clien tRectangle.Heig ht));

this.InvokePain tBackground(can Canvas, pe);
this.InvokePain t(canCanvas, pe);

imageToSave.Sav e(fileName, imageFormatToSa ve);

imageToSave.Dis pose();
