Detailed Description#

class Pylon::CPylonDataComponent;

Provides methods for accessing a single component of CPylonDataContainer.

Attention: Any CPylonDataContainer or CPylonDataComponent will hold a reference to the CGrabResultData from which it has been created. To allow the instant camera to reuse the CGrabResultData and prevent buffer underruns, you must destroy the CPylonDataContainer and all its CPylonDataComponent objects.

Thread Safety:

This class is not thread-safe. If you access the same instance from multiple threads, you must make sure to synchronize the access accordingly.

Some cameras can return complex grab results consisting of multiple components. For example, Basler blaze cameras return a data stream that is composed of range, intensity, and confidence components. To access the individual components, you can use the CPylonDataContainer class.

A CPylonDataContainer can hold one or more components. You can obtain a container by calling Pylon::CGrabResultData::GetDataContainer(). You can then use the container to query for the number of components by calling Pylon::CGrabResultData::GetDataComponentCount(). To retrieve a specific component, you can call Pylon::CGrabResultData::GetDataComponent(). Each component in the container can be used to access the actual data, e.g., the range values, and its metadata.

CPylonDataComponent#

CPylonDataComponent()

Creates an empty component.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

Thread Safety:

This class is not thread-safe. If you access the same instance from multiple threads, you must make sure to synchronize the access accordingly.

The default constructor will create an empty component.

CPylonDataComponent#

CPylonDataComponent(
    const CPylonDataComponent & rhs
)

Creates a copy of an existing component.

Parameters:

  • rhs Source component to copy.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

Thread Safety:

This class is not thread-safe. If you access the same instance from multiple threads, you must make sure to synchronize the access accordingly.

When creating a copy of a component, only the reference to the data in the container is copied. The actual data pointed to by Pylon::CPylonDataComponent::GetData() will not be copied.

~CPylonDataComponent#

~CPylonDataComponent()

Destroys a pylon data component object.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

Thread Safety:

This class is not thread-safe. If you access the same instance from multiple threads, you must make sure to synchronize the access accordingly.

operator=#

CPylonDataComponent & operator=(
    const CPylonDataComponent & rhs
)

Assigns the data of another component to this component by copying.

Parameters:

  • rhs Source component to copy.

Postcondition:

  • Any container previously referenced is released.
  • The container of the component passed is referenced.
  • No container is referenced if the component passed is invalid.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

Thread Safety:

This class is not thread-safe. If you access the same instance from multiple threads, you must make sure to synchronize the access accordingly.

When assigning a copy of a component, only the metadata is copied. The actual data pointed to by Pylon::CPylonDataComponent::GetData() will not be copied.

operator const Pylon::IImage &#

operator const Pylon::IImage &() const

Provides a Pylon::IImage interface to the component.

Attention: The returned reference is only valid as long as the component is not destroyed.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

Thread Safety:

This class is not thread-safe. If you access the same instance from multiple threads, you must make sure to synchronize the access accordingly.

This cast operator allows passing the component to image format converters, save functions, or any other functions that require an IImage object. The returned image is invalid if the component is invalid or cannot be converted to an image.

IsValid#

bool IsValid() const

Can be used to check whether the component is valid.

Return: Returns false if the component does not contain valid data or hasn't been initialized yet.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

Thread Safety:

This class is not thread-safe. If you access the same instance from multiple threads, you must make sure to synchronize the access accordingly.

GetComponentType#

EComponentType GetComponentType() const

Get the type of data this component contains.

Return: Returns the type of data in this component. See Pylon::EComponentType for values.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

Thread Safety:

This class is not thread-safe. If you access the same instance from multiple threads, you must make sure to synchronize the access accordingly.

Use this function to distinguish between different component types like intensity values or range values. See Pylon::EComponentType for values.

GetPixelType#

EPixelType GetPixelType() const

Get the type of pixels this component contains.

Return: Returns an enumeration value describing the pixels in the component. See Pylon::EPixelType for values. If the component does not contain valid data or contains a unknown pixel format, PixelType_Unknown is returned.

Note: Not all components contain pixel data. Only components of type ComponentType_Intensity, ComponentType_Range, and ComponentType_Confidence return a valid pixel type.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

Thread Safety:

This class is not thread-safe. If you access the same instance from multiple threads, you must make sure to synchronize the access accordingly.

Use this function to determine how to interpret the data returned by Pylon::CPylonDataComponent::GetData().

GetWidth#

uint32_t GetWidth() const

Get the current number of columns.

Return: Returns the current number of columns or 0 if the component is invalid.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

Thread Safety:

This class is not thread-safe. If you access the same instance from multiple threads, you must make sure to synchronize the access accordingly.

GetHeight#

uint32_t GetHeight() const

Get the current number of rows.

Return: Returns the current number of rows or 0 if the component is invalid.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

Thread Safety:

This class is not thread-safe. If you access the same instance from multiple threads, you must make sure to synchronize the access accordingly.

GetOffsetX#

uint32_t GetOffsetX() const

GetOffsetY#

uint32_t GetOffsetY() const

Get the starting row.

Return: Returns the starting row.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

Thread Safety:

This class is not thread-safe. If you access the same instance from multiple threads, you must make sure to synchronize the access accordingly.

GetPaddingX#

size_t GetPaddingX() const

Get the number of extra bytes at the end of each row.

Return: Returns the number of extra bytes at the end of each row.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

Thread Safety:
