ICImagingControl.ReferenceTimeCurrent Property

Returns the current reference time.
public double ReferenceTimeCurrent;

The property's unit is seconds.

If the ReferenceTimeCurrent is retrieved while the live video is not running, the error message "Run-time error '20' This function cannot be called if livemode is inactive" is issued.


This example demonstrates how to show a live video for five seconds.

if( ICImagingControl1.DeviceValid ) { ICImagingControl1.LiveStart(); while( ICImagingControl1.ReferenceTimeCurrent - ICImagingControl1.ReferenceTimeStart < 5 ) { System.Diagnostics.Trace.WriteLine(ICImagingControl1.ReferenceTimeCurrent - ICImagingControl1.ReferenceTimeStart); } ICImagingControl1.LiveStop(); }
