Syntax
C#

property bool AutoFocus { 
   bool get(); 
   void set (    bool ); 
} 

Property Value

Remarks

Gets and sets the auto setting for the CameraControlProperty.Focus property. To get the range and default value of this camera property, use the CameraControl.FocusInfo property. For more information, refer to the Microsoft documentation for the IAMCameraControl.Get and IAMCameraControl.Set methods. Assigning a value to this property can raise an error exception.

For more information, refer to the Error Codes.
