Can someone show me how to set auto gain and auto exposure on and off with vb6 and the 31bf03 camera? It's done in a sample but the program is so convoluted that I can't follow the logic.

Just a few lines of code is all I need.

Tnx,
Jay

Jay,

the simplest way is
ICImagingControl1.ExposureAuto = True

With IC Imaging Control 3.0 there may is an error. ExposureAutoAvailable returns false in any cases. Thus write to support@imagingcontrol.com so i can give a free update to you.

The updated control fixed that problem -- AND an even more serious problem. So serious, in fact, I was beginning to think that I wasn't going to be able to use these cameras for my application!

Now everything is working perfectly!! javascript:smilie(':p')

All users of this active x control should be notified of the upgrade! Or better yet, have a "download software updates" page on your website like everyone else does. (If you have one, I can't find it.)

Thanks again,
Jay
