Background

There is a C# API exposed using the .NET CamApi for Window library. The code includes examples showing how to control your edgertronic camera.

Requirements

Your Windows computer must have the following packages installed.

  • Microsoft .NET Core 2.X SDK
  • git

Installation

Open PowerShell and run the following commands:

mkdir \projects 
mkdir \projects\edgertronic
cd \projects\edgertronic
git clone https://github.com/gharley/CamApi.git
dotnet build
dotnet publish -c Release -r win10-x64
dotnet pack .\CamApiLib\CamApiLib.csproj -c Release

Examples

Supported parameters

You can see the supported command line parameters running the example with the -h option:

.\CamApiExample\bin\Release\netcoreapp2.0\win10-x64\CamApiExample.exe -h

You will see output similar to:

Options (must have = with no spaces between option and value):
  -a --Address                   Host name or IP # of camera (default 10.11.12.13)
  -f --FavoritesTest            1 to run favorites tests (deletes all saved favorites)
  -c --CaptureTest              1 to run capture tests (time consuming, writes to storage)
  -m --MultiCaptureTest   1 to run multi-capture tests (time consuming, writes to storage)
  -h --Help                          1 to display this message


Controlling a camera

You can run the example by providing the network address of the camera:

.\CamApiExample\bin\Release\netcoreapp2.0\win10-x64\CamApiExample.exe -a=10.11.12.13

You will see output similar to:
