Hello Gurus!

I would like to make a bitmap of a picture box that is container for a number of controls placed in it at runtime.

Obviously the child controls are not in the .picture or .image of the parent so how do I go about doing this?

I would also like to do this action without having to display the pcturebox at runtime as:-
1:- performance
2:- the picturebox is goining to be bigger than can be displayed on the screen.

ie. I don't think a screen grab will work for this application

Many thanks in advance
