    PylonDeviceRemCb_t * pCbFunction,
    PYLON_DEVICECALLBACK_HANDLE * phCb
)

Register device removal callback.

Parameters:

  • hDev Device handle
  • pCbFunction Callback function pointer
  • phCb Pointer to callback handle result

Return: If the function succeeds, the return value is GENAPI_E_OK.

If the function fails, the return value will be any of error codes described in the section ErrorCodes.

Note

The time the callback will be fired can vary depending on the transport layer used. Some devices, e.g. devices with GigE interface, may take some time to detect the device removal (see [Debugging pylon Applications Using GigE Cameras]). If your program is currently grabbing images it is likely to get failed buffers before the callback is fired.

Register a device removal callback on the device. The callback function will be called when the device is removed (unplugged). When the callback is fired all subsequent calls to functions which need to communicate with the device will fail.

Some devices may not support callback removal and will return an invalid handle.

    uint32_t timeoutMs,
    uint32_t * pNumResults,
    PylonGigEActionCommandResult_t * pResults
)

Issue an action command via broadcast.

Parameters:

  • deviceKey The device key addresses devices managed by an application. The device key is only known to the application controlling its camera devices and it ensures that only this application can trigger the camera devices. Therefore the device key cannot be read from a device. An exact match of the send deviceKey and the device key stored in a device is required for executing an action.
  • groupKey The group key is used to create groups of devices or actions. An exact match of the send groupKey and the group key stored in a device for an action is required for executing an action.
  • groupMask The groupMask is a bit mask that allows to send an action to a subgroup of the devices addressed by the deviceKey``groupKey pair. The result of a bitwise AND operation of groupMask and the group mask stored in a device for an action must be non-zero for executing an action.
  • pBroadcastAddress BroadcastAddress in dot notation where the command will be broadcast to, e.g. 255.255.255.255 (all adapters, default), 192.168.1.255 (all devices in a single subnet 192.168.1.xxx), 192.168.1.38 (single device). See the note below.
  • timeoutMs Optional: Time in milliseconds the call is waiting for acknowledges of the addressed devices. Waiting for acknowledges is stopped if pNumResults have been received. This parameter can be 0 if a check of action command results is not required.
  • pNumResults Optional: The number of results in the results array. The value passed should be equal to the expected number of devices that acknowledge the command. Returns the number of received results. This parameter is ignored if timeoutMs is 0. Thus, this parameter can be NULL if timeoutMs is 0.
  • pResults Optional: An array with *pNumResults elements to hold the action command result status. The buffer is filled beginning from the start. Remaining results are not changed if less results are received than result items available. This parameter is ignored if timeoutMs is 0. Thus, this parameter can be NULL if timeoutMs is 0.

Return: If the function succeeds, the return value is GENAPI_E_OK.

If the function fails, the return value will be any of error codes described in the section ErrorCodes.

Note

The request is sent via all existing network adapters. If a network adapter has more than one IP address, the request is sent separately for each address. This is not executed simultaneously but consecutively, IP address by IP address. That's why additional latency is added to the execution time. Directed broadcasts (192.168.1.255) or unicasts (192.168.1.38) are only sent if the request subnet matches the subnet of the IP address, i.e., if no gateway or routing are required.

Precondition:

  • IP4 addresses must be used.
  • groupMask must not be 0.
  • pNumResult, *pNumResult and pResults must not be 0 if a timeoutMs value other than 0 is passed.

Thread Safety:

The function is thread-safe.

The action command feature lets you trigger actions in multiple devices (e.g. cameras) at roughly the same time or at a defined point in time (scheduled action command) by using a single broadcast protocol message (without extra cabling). Action commands are used in cameras in the same way as for example the digital input lines.

function PylonGigEIssueScheduledActionCommand#

    uint32_t timeoutMs,
    uint32_t * pNumResults,
    PylonGigEActionCommandResult_t * pResults
)

Parameters:

  • deviceKey The device key addresses devices managed by an application. The device key is only known to the application controlling its camera devices and it ensures that only this application can trigger the camera devices.

  • groupKey The group key is used to create groups of devices or actions. An exact match of the send groupKey and the group key stored in a device for an action is required for executing an action.
  • groupMask The groupMask is a bit mask that allows to send an action to a subgroup of the devices addressed by the deviceKey``groupKey pair. The result of a bitwise AND operation of groupMask and the group mask stored in a device for an action must be non-zero for executing an action.
  • actionTimeNs Time in nanoseconds when the action is to be executed. The actual value depends on the used master clock. A master clock value can be obtained for instance for a set of synchronized camera devices by reading the timestamp value (GevTimestampValue) after latching the timestamp value (GevTimestampControlLatch) from one camera device of the set.
  • pBroadcastAddress BroadcastAddress in dot notation where the command will be broadcast to, e.g. 255.255.255.255 (all adapters, default), 192.168.1.255 (all devices in a single subnet 192.168.1.xxx), 192.168.1.38 (single device). See the note below.
  • timeoutMs Optional: Time in milliseconds the call is waiting for acknowledges of the addressed devices. Waiting for acknowledges is stopped if pNumResults have been received. This parameter can be 0 if a check of action command results is not required.
  • pNumResults Optional: The number of results in the results array. The value passed should be equal to the expected number of devices that acknowledge the command. Returns the number of received results. This parameter is ignored if timeoutMs is 0. Thus, this parameter can be NULL if timeoutMs is 0.
  • pResults Optional: An array with *pNumResults elements to hold the action command result status. The buffer is filled beginning from the start. Remaining results are not changed if less results are received than result items available. This parameter is ignored if timeoutMs is 0. Thus, this parameter can be NULL if timeoutMs is 0.

Return: If the function succeeds, the return value is GENAPI_E_OK.

If the function fails, the return value will be any of error codes described in the section ErrorCodes.

  • priority The new priority

Return: GENAPI_E_OK if everything is o.k.

one of the documented error codes otherwise

This function allows to raise a thread's priority into the range of "realtime" thread priorities. The function can control each thread independently. This means that it is not necessary to raise the process to the "realtime" priority class, which would affect all threads of the process.

If the process is not in the realtime priority class and if the process has the SE_INC_BASE_PRIORITY_NAME privilege, values from 15 to 31 can be set. If the privilege is not granted, only 15 can be set.

If the process is in the realtime priority class, values from 16 to 31 can be set. No special permissions are required.

To grant the privilege, use the Windows policy editor to enable the SE_INC_BASE_PRIORITY_NAME right (User Rights Assignment / Increase scheduling policy). Typically, all members of the Administrators group have the privilege enabled.

Caution: Do not change the process priority class after setting the realtime thread priority.
