Greetings all -
I have been successful with the MCA SDK in the sense that I'm using a panel control on a windows form to display the camera preview by passing the panel's handle to the StartPreview method of the Camera object.
I have one question tho about refreshing the preview window. It seems that in my app (and the example applications included with the SDK) that the panel showing the previewed image remains static until the window containing the preview panel is moved or resized, or otherwise has to redraw itself.
I've tried several different methods to force my preview panel to refresh/redraw itself, but the image shown never updates unless I actually move or resize the window that contains the panel.
On the C5 tablet itself, the preview window that pops up by pressing the hardware button on the tablet constantly redraws itself, so you essentially get a real-time "video" of what the camera is seeing. I would like to implement this same kind of behavior in my application, but as of yet have not been successful in getting my preview panel to update.
Is there a way to force the panel holding the preview image to update?
