Readout mode, Interface Version 2 only

Namespace: ASCOM.DeviceInterface
Assembly: ASCOM.DeviceInterfaces (in ASCOM.DeviceInterfaces.dll) Version: 6.0.0.0 (6.1.1.2619)

Syntax

C#
short ReadoutMode { get; set; }
Visual Basic
Property ReadoutMode As Short
	Get
	Set
Visual C++
property short ReadoutMode {
	short get ();
	void set (short value);
}

Field Value

Return Value

Short integer index into the ReadoutModes array of string readout mode names indicating the camera's current readout mode.

Remarks

Must be implemented if CanFastReadout is false, must throw a PropertyNotImplementedException if CanFastReadout is true.

ReadoutMode is an index into the array ReadoutModes, and selects the desired readout mode for the camera. Defaults to 0 if not set. Throws an exception if the selected mode is not available.

It is strongly recommended, but not required, that driver authors make the 0-index mode suitable for standard imaging operations, since it is the default.

Please see ReadoutModes for additional information.

This is only available for the Camera Interface Version 2

Exceptions

ExceptionCondition
ASCOM..::..InvalidValueExceptionMust throw an exception if set to an illegal or unavailable mode.
ASCOM..::..NotConnectedExceptionMust throw an exception if the information is not available. (Some drivers may require an active connection in order to retrieve necessary information from the camera.)
