Member Function Documentation

◆ AddToPropertySequence()

virtual int MM::Device::AddToPropertySequence ( const char *  propertyName,
const char *  value 
)
pure virtual

◆ ClearPropertySequence()

virtual int MM::Device::ClearPropertySequence ( const char *  propertyName)
pure virtual

◆ GetModuleHandle()

virtual HDEVMODULE MM::Device::GetModuleHandle ( ) const
pure virtual

◆ GetPropertySequenceMaxLength()

virtual int MM::Device::GetPropertySequenceMaxLength ( const char *  propertyName,
long &  nrEvents 
) const
pure virtual

◆ IsPropertySequenceable()

virtual int MM::Device::IsPropertySequenceable ( const char *  name,
bool &  isSequenceable 
) const
pure virtual

Sequences can be used for fast acquisitions, synchronized by TTLs rather than computer commands. Sequences of states can be uploaded to the device. The device will cycle through the uploaded list of states (triggered by an external trigger - most often coming from the camera). If the device is capable (and ready) to do so isSequenceable will be true

Implemented in CDeviceBase< MM::Hub, U >, CDeviceBase< MM::Stage, U >, CDeviceBase< MM::Serial, U >, CDeviceBase< MM::ImageProcessor, U >, CDeviceBase< MM::XYStage, U >, CDeviceBase< MM::SignalIO, U >, CDeviceBase< MM::Shutter, U >, CDeviceBase< MM::AutoFocus, U >, CDeviceBase< MM::Generic, U >, CDeviceBase< MM::State, U >, CDeviceBase< MM::Galvo, U >, CDeviceBase< MM::SLM, U >, CDeviceBase< MM::Magnifier, U >, and CDeviceBase< MM::Camera, U >.

◆ SendPropertySequence()

virtual int MM::Device::SendPropertySequence ( const char *  propertyName)
pure virtual

◆ Shutdown()

virtual int MM::Device::Shutdown ( )
pure virtual

Shuts down (unloads) the device. Required by the MM::Device API. Ideally this method will completely unload the device and release all resources. Shutdown() may be called multiple times in a row. After Shutdown() we should be allowed to call Initialize() again to load the device without causing problems.

◆ StartPropertySequence()

virtual int MM::Device::StartPropertySequence ( const char *  propertyName)
pure virtual

◆ StopPropertySequence()

virtual int MM::Device::StopPropertySequence ( const char *  propertyName)
pure virtual
