IC Imaging Control .NET

ImageBuffer.Lock Method

ImageBuffer.Lock Method

Locks the buffer
public void 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:

ImageBuffer Buffer = ICImagingControl1.ImageBuffers[0]; Buf.Lock(); // Do a lengthy operation. Buf.Unlock();

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