The Camera type exposes the following members.

Methods

  NameDescription

Aborts the current exposure, if any, and returns the camera to Idle state.
Public methodAction

Public methodStatic memberChoose

Choose() allows you to optionally pass the DriverID of a "current" driver, and the corresponding camera type is pre-selected in the Chooser///s list. In this case, the OK button starts out enabled (lit-up); the assumption is that the pre-selected driver has already been configured.
