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 name to use when saving the snapshot.

timeOut
The timeout period, in milliseconds. This method will fail if it was not able to take a DIB in the specified time. Use -1 to wait indefinitely until a DIB is snapped.

Remarks

Saves a snapshot from the running stream to a file. The file is saved as a DIB using the specified filename and timeout period. This method blocks (does not return) until the timeout occurs or the DIB is snapped.
