Basic machine vision programming for mightex camera in Windows 8
We need to set up an external trigger for a couple of very basic functions for a machine vision application using a Mightex camera. The functions are:
1. grabs the frame with the press of a button on an external trigger
2. prompts for an option to save the image in directory 1 or directory 2, which can be actioned with the press of one of two buttons
3. causes the application which interprets the data to come onto screen
4. when the interpretation is complete in 3, we need a prompt for another image to be taken - which can be actioned by the press of a button, causing the video image to return to the screen, ready for the frame grab
This is for an operational situation where a keyboard, mouse and touch screen will be too slow.
