The ISoftwareTrigger interface permits the sending of a software controlled Trigger to the camera without any external trigger signal.
To use the software trigger the camera or device has to be set to software trigger.
The camera configuration can be customized with the GenICam Browser.
In CVB the trigger feature is set with the
•GenerateSoftwareTrigger method of the Grabber Control or the
•function STTrigger of the ISoftware Trigger Interface of the Driver-Dll.
The documentation for both possibilities is available in the Common Vision Blox Manual.
A platform independent C++ code example can be found in the MultiOSConsole Example (Camera.cpp) of the Image Manager
Windows: %CVB%Tutorial\Image Manager\VC\VCMultiOSConsole
Linux : /opt/cvb/tutorial/ImageManager/ComplexMultiOSConsoleExample
Practical configuration examples can be found in the Use Cases - Trigger Configuration chapter of this manual.
