IMAQdx Continuous Grab & User Triggered Snap


Perform a software trigger to grab a specific image from the camera.


This example uses IMAQdx to continuously acquire (grab) images from an IMAQdx camera. The example also uses a user push button 'trigger' to transfer an image to a buffer, thus creating a snapshot. This example is similar to the example: http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/epd/p/id/3613, but modified to use the IMAQdx driver instead of the IMAQ1394


LabVIEW 8.6 "or compatible"

Vision Acquisition Software 8.6 "or compatible"

Steps to Implement or Execute Code

-Open and run the exmple.

-Follow the instructions listed on the block diagram

Additional Information or References

This example requires that you have the IMAQdx driver installed

 If I'd like to do processing on the 'snap' inside of the case structure, how do I transfer the snap image data back out of the case structure? Basically, in this example the snap image is transferred into a buffer, but how would I get that same image back out?
