View Full Version : Timeout problem

August 30, 2007, 06:11:21
Using version 3.0.4, a user is reporting getting the following error:

the timeout passed to snapImages( ... ) did elapse before all images could be snaped

The error appears to be coming from a call to MemorySnapImage.

LiveCapturePause is not set.

Can you explain what is happening?

Hallo MikeG,

the timeout exception is raised, when the MemorySnapTimeout value is reached before a frame is delivered by the device.
To prevent this, you have to set the "ICImagingControl.MemorySnapTimeout Property" to an big enough value or to -1.

Please refer to ActiveX User's Guide for more information.
If the problem anymore exists, please send me a sample which shows the problem.

This property defaults to -1, and I never change it.
