Detailed Description#

class Pylon::CPylonImage;

Describes an image.

Buffer Handling:

The buffer that is automatically created by the CPylonImage class or a hosted grab result buffer are replaced by a larger buffer if required. The size of the allocated buffer is never decreased. Referenced user buffers are never automatically replaced by a larger buffer. Referenced grab result buffers are never reused. See the Reset() method for more details. The Release() method can be used to detach a user buffer, release a hosted grab result buffer or to free an allocated buffer.

Thread Safety:

The CPylonImage class is not thread-safe.

  • Automatically handles size and lifetime of the image buffer.
  • Allows to take over a buffer of grab result which is preventing its reuse as long as required.
  • Allows to connect user buffers or buffers provided by third party software packages.
  • Provides methods for loading and saving an image in different file formats.
  • Serves as the main target format for the image format converter [CImageFormatConverter](class_pylon_1_1_c_image_format_converter.md).
  • Eases working with planar images.
  • Eases extraction of AOIs, e.g. for thumbnail images of defects.

)

Attaches a grab result buffer using additional hints.

Parameters:

  • grabResult The source buffer.
  • pixelType The pixel type of the source image.
  • width The number of pixels in a row in the source image.

Parameters:

  • grabResult The source image represented by a grab result.

Postcondition:

  • The image properties are taken from the grab result.
  • The grab result buffer is used by the image class.
  • Another reference to the grab result buffer is created. This prevents the buffer's reuse for grabbing.

    uint32_t width,
    uint32_t height,
    size_t paddingX,
    EImageOrientation orientation =ImageOrientation_TopDown,
    CPylonImageUserBufferEventHandler * pEventHandler =NULL
)

Attaches a user buffer.

Parameters:

  • pBuffer The pointer to the buffer of the source image. CPylonImage will never free any user buffers.
  • bufferSizeBytes The size of the buffer of the source image.
  • pixelType The pixel type of the source image.
  • width The number of pixels in a row in the source image.
  • height The number of rows in the source image.
  • paddingX The number of extra data bytes at the end of each row.
  • orientation The vertical orientation of the image in the image buffer.
  • pEventHandler A pointer to an optional CPylonImageUserBufferEventHandler-derived object called when the user-supplied buffer is not used anymore. You can use this to free the user-supplied buffer. In case the function throws an exception, the handler will not be called.

Precondition:

  • The pixel type must be valid.
  • The width value must be >= 0 and < _I32_MAX.
  • The height value must be >= 0 and < _I32_MAX.
  • The pointer to the source buffer must not be NULL.

Postcondition:

  • The image properties are taken from the parameters passed.
  • The user buffer is used by the image class.
  • The user buffer must not be freed while being attached.

Error Safety:

Throws an exception if the preconditions are not met. In this case the an optional handler passed in pEventHandler will not be called.

When attaching a user buffer and passing a pEventHandler, the user is responsible for ensuring the object is valid until CPylonImageUserBufferEventHandler::OnPylonImageUserBufferDetached() has been called. The user is also responsible to free the handler object after CPylonImageUserBufferEventHandler::OnPylonImageUserBufferDetached() has been called. After the function has returned, CPylonImage won't access the object anymore. See [CPylonImageUserBufferEventHandler::OnPylonImageUserBufferDetached()](class_pylon_1_1_c_pylon_image_user_buffer_event_handler.md#function-cpylonimageuserbuffereventhandleronpylonimageuserbufferdetachedclass_pylon___c_pylon_image_user_buffer_event_handler.mdfunctiononpylonimageuserbufferdetached-for-a-sample.) for a sample.

Error Safety:

Throws an exception if the saving of the image fails.

Converts the image to a format that can be saved if required.

This is a convenience method that calls CImagePersistence::Save().

If required, the image is automatically converted into a new image and saved afterwards. See CImagePersistence::CanSaveWithoutConversion() for more information. An image with a bit depth higher than 8 bit is stored with 16 bit bit depth, if supported by the image file format. In this case the pixel data is MSB aligned.

If more control over the conversion is required, the CImageFormatConverter class can be used to convert the input image before saving it.

Load#

virtual void Load(
    const String_t & filename
)

Parameters:

  • filename Name and path of the image.

Precondition: The image object must be able to hold the image format of the loaded image.

Error Safety:

Throws an exception if the image cannot be loaded. The image buffer content is undefined when the loading of the image fails.

This is a convenience method that calls CImagePersistence::Load()

CanSaveWithoutConversion#

virtual bool CanSaveWithoutConversion(
    EImageFileFormat imageFileFormat
) const

Can be used to check whether the image can be saved without prior conversion.

Parameters:

  • imageFileFormat Target file format for the image to be saved.

Return: Returns true, if the image can be saved without prior conversion.

Error Safety:

Does not throw C++ exceptions.

This is a convenience method that calls CImagePersistence::CanSaveWithoutConversion().

GetPixelData#

    uint32_t posY
) const

Retrieves the data of a pixel.

Parameters:

  • posX Horizontal position of the pixel. The first column has position 0.
  • posY Vertical position of the pixel. The first row has position 0.

Return: Returns the data of a pixel for supported pixel types. For unsupported pixel types pixel data of the SPixelData::PixelDataType_Unknown type is returned.

Note

This method is relativly slow. Do not use it for image processing tasks.

Precondition:

  • The image must be valid.

    EImageOrientation orientation =ImageOrientation_TopDown
)

Creates an image and allocates a buffer for it.

Parameters:

  • pixelType The pixel type of the new image.
  • width The number of pixels in a row in the new image.
  • height The number of rows in the new image.
  • paddingX The number of extra data bytes at the end of each row.
  • orientation The vertical orientation of the image in the image buffer.

Precondition:

  • The pixel type must be valid.
  • The width value must be >= 0 and < _I32_MAX.
  • The height value must be >= 0 and < _I32_MAX.

Error Safety:

Throws an exception when the parameters are invalid. Throws an exception when no buffer with the required size could be allocated.
