SaveStillDIB Method

Summary

Saves a snapshot from the running stream to a file as a device-independent bitmap(DIB).

Syntax

C#
VB
C++
public virtual void SaveStillDIB( 
   string fileName, 
   int timeOut 
) 
Public Overridable Sub SaveStillDIB( _ 
   ByVal fileName As String, _ 
   ByVal timeOut As Integer _ 
)  
public: 
virtual void SaveStillDIB(  
   String^ fileName, 
   int timeOut 
)  

Parameters

fileName
A string that represents the filename to save the DIB to.

timeOut
The timeout period in milliseconds. This method fails if it is not able to take the DIB in the specified time. Use -1 to wait infinitely until a DIB is snapped.

Remarks

Saves a snapshot, as a DIB, from the running stream to the specified filename. This method will not return until the specified timeout occurs or the DIB is snapped.
