View Full Version : Load settings for camera from file not possible

Hello again,

following situation:

After changing the settings for the camera I save the props to file. When starting the application the settings should be loaded and the camera operate with them.

I tried both ways to save and load the settings, but neither works. I can save all settings by

.SaveDeviceStateToFile "cSettings.dat"

or using the long way

DevState=.SaveDeviceState
and save the string manually to file.

Checking the file after saving exposure shows different values, as expected,
i.E. when setting to 1/50 the value is 1.996999979019165e-002 (I checked several values).

Now the problem:

When loading the settings from file (.LoadDeviceStateFromFile or LoadDeviceState after reading the file manually) the exposure always sets to 1/16 while other settings are restored accurately, i.E. gain.

Please give a hint why that behaviour could happen.

Some technical information:
Camera used: DMK21BF04
OS: Win2000Pro SP4
Programming language: VB6 with IC ImagingControl 2.1

Thank you for your help,

Karl-Heinz

Hello,

I did following:


Private Sub Command1_Click()
ICImagingControl1.ShowPropertyDialog

ICImagingControl1.SaveDeviceStateToFile "test.xml"
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

On Error GoTo loaderror
ICImagingControl1.LoadDeviceStateFromFile "test.xml", True
Exit Sub
loaderror:
MsgBox "Loaderror"
End Sub


This worked correctly. The exposure value has been controlled with the "ShowPropertyDialog"
method. Between the tests i changed the properties of the camera using another
program to make sure, there has been something differend written in the camera.
