There are many ways to do this and they depend mostly on the frameworks
you are using.
Here is a short example how to write a screenshot to a bitmap using
from wxPython.wx import *
"""writes a screenshot to a bitmap (.bmp)"""
screenDC, memDC = wxScreenDC(), wxMemoryDC() # device contexts
width, height = screenDC.GetSizeTuple() # screen size
bitmap = wxEmptyBitmap(width, height) # create bitmap
memDC.SelectObject(bitmap) # select bitmap
memDC.Blit(0, 0, width, height, screenDC, 0, 0) # copy screen
bitmap.SaveFile(filename, wxBITMAP_TYPE_BMP) # save bitmap
Hope that helps,
