Features

This chapter lists the common features of The Imaging Source video capture devices.

Introduction

The available features depend on the used camera models. For example, monochrome cameras do not provide hue, saturation and white balance.

Also some camera models have an external trigger or GP I/O support.

The plugin provides a so called feature_n feature, that is used to query the available features and execute commands. The following example source shows how to fill two combo boxes with the available features and execute commands. The feature combobox is named cboFeatures, the execute commands combo box is named cboExecutes.

[C#]
ICogImagingDeviceAccess Feature = Camera.OwnedImagingDeviceAccess; String FeatureIndex; String FeatureName = "n/a"; int i = 1; while(FeatureName != "") { FeatureIndex = String.Format("feature_{0}", i); FeatureName = Feature.GetFeature(FeatureIndex); if (FeatureName != "") { cboFeatures.Items.Add(FeatureName); i++; } } String ExecuteIndex; String ExecuteName = "n/a"; i = 1; while (ExecuteName != "") { ExecuteIndex = String.Format("execute_{0}", i); ExecuteName = Feature.GetFeature(ExecuteIndex); if (ExecuteName != "") { cboExecutes.Items.Add(ExecuteName); i++; } }
