  • In Solution Explorer, click MainPage.xaml and replace the page content with what is shown below:
  • Open the MainPage.xaml.cs file and the page content as shown below:
  • IsCaptureSupported: Returns a bool value – Gets a value indicating whether the capturing screenshots are supported.
  • CaptureAsync: Returns an ISscreenshotResult. – It is responsible for taking screenshots of the current application. Therefore, we can get various information about it, such as width and height.
  • Stream: IScreenshotResult also has a Stream property that is used to convert the screenshot to an image object.
  • Assign the derived stream value to the image control as ImageSource.
