Description

This event is fired each time a frame is dropped during the video acquisition.


Syntax


[VB]
Private Sub objActiveDcam_FrameDropped()


[C/C++]
HRESULT Fire_FrameDropped();


Parameters
[C/C++]

None  
 

Return Values


S_OK  
Success  
E_FAIL  
Failure.  


Example


This VB example uses the FrameDropped event to generate a sound signal:

Private Sub ActiveDcam1_FrameDropped()  
Beep  
End Sub  
 

Remarks


The FrameDropped event is raised if a video FIFO overflow occurs during the acquisition of a frame resulting in a frame drop. The most common reasons for this are low bandwidth (several cameras connected to the 1394 board) or CPU overload.
