I'm trying to use pythondotnet to communicate with a camera (from Xenics),
it has a C# wrapper.
>From their documentation it seems I need to send the following to grab a
XCamera::GetFrame ( FrameType
unsigned long *ulFlags*,
void * *buffer*,
unsigned int *size*
In their C# example they create the buffer by:
UInt32 frameSize = camera.FrameSize;
frameBuffer = new ushort[frameSize / 2];
and call the function:
GetFrame(FrameType.Native, XGetFrameFlags.Blocking, frameBuffer, frameSize);
I've tried to emulate it by creating the buffer in python:
frameSize = np.uint32(camera.FrameSize)
frameBuffer = np.empty([int(frameSize/2), 1], dtype=np.ushort)
However when I try to call the function (camera is an XCamera object from
their dll, FrameType and XGetFlags are defined in their dll also.
camera.GetFrame(FrameType.Native, XGetFrameFlags.Blocking, frameBuffer,
I get an error I'm not sending the right variables to the function:
"TypeError: No method matches given arguments"
Do I need to send the actual buffer pointer to the function? How to
implement it in pythondotnet?
