ImageBuffer.Lock Method

ImageBuffer.Lock Method

Locks the buffer
Public Sub Lock()

Increments the lock count of the buffer by one, so that the control does not overwrite the data in the ImageBuffer. Each call to lock must be matched with a call to ImageBuffer.Unlock, so that the buffer can be used again by the control.


This example locks and unlocks an ImageBuffer:

Dim Buf As ImageBuffer
Set Buf = ICImagingControl1.ImageBuffer.Item(1)
' do a lengthy operation

A sample on how to use ImageBuffer and ImageBuffer.Lock is shown in Performing Advanced Image Processing.
