scanning / twain
Posted on 2000-02-17
For this project I'm working on, I'll have to be able to 'handle' scanned documents, from various types of scanners.
there are some choice's to make:
- have Delphi accept scanned formats from various scanners.
- have a converter to convert multiple formats to one format Delphi uses.
I'm still disigning this part of the system, but also doing some research in advance. I did search on the net for avaiblable Delphi components and the TWAIN initiative and will continue doing this.
My question: Could somebody advise me in this scenario? Did people make applications that support a variety of scanners? Are there known problems?
If more people have 'answers', I can do something with points.
I was also thinking about 'Imaging', can I use this as by COM / OLE within my form? Should I automate this program, or get Delphi components?
Next to this I also want a thumbnail like view in Delphi... ...and by the by, I need to be able to handle:
1 scan; 1 page.
1 scan; multiple pages.
'1 scan'; multiple scans, multiple pages.
