..NET has no (not yet?) classes for imaging devices...

You have to use [heavy] PInvoke/Interop with the Win32 Imaging APIs or
any (third-party) COM-Components

check my TWAIN C# sample:
http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/twaindotnet.asp

or for Windows XP only, my WIA Scripting sample
http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/wi...tingdotnet.asp
(For XP SP1, there is a new WIA-Automation component)

PLEASE NOTE:
my samples just show the very basic Interop technology,
are NOT complete and you have to understand TWAIN / WIA!

And there is 'Managed C++', you can use it to
write wrappers for any classic Win32/C++ code:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en...rp12192002.asp
Or check third-party (I did not test any):
http://www.accusoft.com/imaging/imagegear/igp_about.asp
http://www.accusoft.com/imaging/imag...ig_netbeta.asp

Thanku you very much for answer.
On one of links you point me I have found
well twain driver but is little problem.
I want to grab picture on disk and if I run
example program which call function
acquire there is dialog of my camera displayed
and only from it I can grab image.
I wish that after calling acquire I have
picture on disk.
How to avoid displaing my camera dialog
window?

Thanks
Konrad

The TWAIN specification document has:
DG_CONTROL / DAT_USERINTERFA CE / MSG_ENABLEDS (ShowUI == FALSE)
but maybe it doesn't work for all devices.
Note again, you have to understand the TWAIN specifications
to use/extend my samples....

Hello all, I'm looking for a method, to program TWAIN directly via API calls... Because the Twain OCX under Windows from Kodak is very slow... When I scan via software or the OCX, the TWAIN driver reloads everytime, I would like to keep it open, so I can close it when I exit the program. Thanx, Paul

Hi all! Sorry for this rather lengthy post. It's a long preamble followed by a few questions based on that.

I'm currently developing an API of Twain for Java. As Twain is implemented in C (and in fact Im writing and calling C methods from the app) I couldn't find a better group to search for twain development related issues. Here's my question: Does anyone know why when I negociate the capabilities ICAP_XRESOLUTION and ICAP_YRESOLUTION I'm getting all sorts of repeated random values like: 100, 100, 0, 0, 117, 5, 8, 0, 87, 78, 79, 83, 115,...

I'm hoping there is a TWAIN expert lurking here somewhere :) I'm writing a very customized application. The software will be set up in multiple location and will always have two types of scanners attached to the computer. The scanners are microfilm/fiche and a flatbed. So I've created a scanner setup screen where the user can select the twain source for the fiche/film scanner and the twain source for the flatbed scanner. I'm using an...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
