ICImagingControl.ReferenceTimeStart Property

ICImagingControl.ReferenceTimeStart Property

Returns the reference time at which the image stream was started.
public double ReferenceTimeStart;

If ICImagingControl.LiveStart has been called, all necessary filters are connected. This could take some time. After the all filters have been connected, the video stream started. This is the time that is returned by the ReferenceTimeStart property.

The property's unit is seconds.

If the ReferenceTimeStart 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 displayed.


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(); }
