I am trying to create a screencapture utility. I would like to implement a rubberband "click and drag" to select an area on the screen to capture. Is there a way to capture mouse events on an invisible JWindow or JFrame to implement this? If not, then is there a way to capture mouse events on the screen in the MS windows environment?
Thanks,
Darrin
