NearestSelection Property

Summary

Gets the index of the video capture input that was last selected in the video cross bar property page.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public int NearestSelection { get; } 
Public ReadOnly Property NearestSelection As Integer 
public: 
property int NearestSelection { 
   int get(); 
} 

Property Value

The zero-based index of the nearest selected item; or -1 if no item is selected.

Remarks

If the Selection is -1, despite the fact there is a selected input, then the selected video capture input does not match the selected audio input. In this case, check the value of the NearestSelection property to retrieve the index of the last selected capture input. Set the Selection property to the value in the NearestSelection property to fix the problem. Please note that if an audio-video pair are mismatched intentionally, it may be best to keep the pair mismatched. For more information on unmatched pairs of video and audio inputs, refer to the CaptureInputs object.
