I am writing a program that needs to get pixels from a window, and search for a certain range of pixel colors. I have been using getPixel, but that method is too slow for even 800x600. Does anyone know a different method/s? The window uses Direct X, if that helps...

Try to use CreateDIBSection(). After that you are able to access the graphic bits directly which is way faster than GetPixel()

Thanks that looks like what I need. I am running Windows 7 and can't test it yet, but it seems like it will work.
