View Full Version : Conditional Complile activation of ICImagingControl

September 13, 2002, 01:14:20
I have versions of my image processing software that work with several different frame grabbers and operating systems. For some combinations I do not need the ICImagingControl. I am a VB programmer and would like to be able to use a conditional compilation (#IF statement) to include the ICImagingControl for use on a form.

Or another way to say it is: how can I use a compile switch (#IF statement) to exclude the ICImagingControl when I'm running Windows NT? Assume that I have the flag that indicates NT, now what do I do to eliminate the control?

Hello Brad,

To load IC Imaging Control dynamically in a Visual Basic application, the Visual Basic's CreateObject method is used.

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim IC As Object
' Now create the object
Set IC = CreateObject("IC.ICImagingControl")
End Sub

With this code, it is not necessary to insert IC Imaging Control in the form.

Best regards
IC Support
