How grab image/graphics/capture of what's behind a frame or window?

I'm trying to make a window that you can see through (and hopefully move around). The problem is that Robot doesn't work when you move the image. Imagine a window like this:
When I use Robot to grab a screen capture to make the inside have the image of what's behind it, there's no problem - until I move it. If I drag it to the right (let's say it moves 1 pixel), then I have to replace the "invisible" part 1-pixel inside the outer border with what was behind the border - which with Robot I can't capture. I can do it if I hide the window, capture it and show it again, but then that causes a horrible and visible flashing which also ruins dragging.
