Line Format#

The Line Format camera feature allows you to determine the electrical format of an I/O line.

Using the Feature#

Determining the Line Format#

To determine the electrical format of an I/O line:

  1. Set the LineSelector parameter to the desired I/O line, e.g., Line1.
  2. Get the value of the LineFormat parameter.
    This parameter is read-only.

Possible Values#

Possible values are:

Sample Code#

// Select the desired I/O line
camera.LineSelector.SetValue(LineSelector_Line1);
// Get the electrical format of the line
LineFormatEnums e = camera.LineFormat.GetValue();
INodeMap& nodemap = camera.GetNodeMap();
// Select the desired I/O line
CEnumerationPtr(nodemap.GetNode("LineSelector"))->FromString("Line1");
// Get the electrical format of the line
String_t e = CEnumerationPtr(nodemap.GetNode("LineFormat"))->ToString();
INodeMap& nodemap = camera.GetNodeMap();
// Select the desired I/O line
CEnumParameter(nodemap, "LineSelector").SetValue("Line1");
// Get the electrical format of the line
String_t e = CEnumParameter(nodemap, "LineFormat").GetValue();
// Select the desired I/O line
camera.Parameters[PLCamera.LineSelector].SetValue(PLCamera.LineSelector.Line1);
// Get the electrical format of the line
string e = camera.Parameters[PLCamera.LineFormat].GetValue();
// Select the desired I/O line
Pylon.DeviceFeatureFromString(hdev, "LineSelector", "Line1");
// Get the electrical format of the line
string e = Pylon.DeviceFeatureToString(hdev, "LineFormat");
/* Macro to check for errors */
#define CHECK(errc) if (GENAPI_E_OK != errc) printErrorAndExit(errc)
GENAPIC_RESULT errRes = GENAPI_E_OK;  /* Return value of pylon methods */
size_t len = 0;
char e_str[64] = {0};
/* Select the desired I/O line */
errRes = PylonDeviceFeatureFromString(hdev, "LineSelector", "Line1");
CHECK(errRes);
/* Get the electrical format of the line */
len = sizeof(e_str);
errRes = PylonDeviceFeatureToString(hdev, "LineFormat", e_str, &len);
CHECK(errRes);

You can also use the pylon Viewer to easily set the parameters.
