Windows 8 Save CANVAS as IMAGE WinRT Metro App C#

Jun 25, 2012 at 12:16 PM

Hi all, I have a CANVAS element on a page and a few objetcs are drawn on it.  I want to save the canvas with all the objects as an image or even in memory stream so that it can be shared using a contract.

Does anyone know how to do this?  Save a CANVAS as an image or memory stream?

According to a MS engineer I spoke to, this functionality did not make it into Win 8.  Sorry.

This may be an option... using SharpDX to render to a texture then saving the contents of the texture
