Hi,

There's a imaging tool that ships with Windows.
Import this ActiveX control in Delphi and generate
a component wrapper.

Import the ActiveX Control "Kodak Image Scan Control"
(Select Component|Import ActiveX Control...)

Now add a TImgScan Component from the Register "ActiveX" to your form.

Change the following Properties in the Object Inspector:

FileType = 3 - BMP_Bitmap
PageOption = 4 - OverwritePages
ScanTo = 2 - FileOnly


procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if imgScan1.ScannerAvailable then
    try
      imgScan1.Image := 'c:\Scanner.bmp';
      imgScan1.OpenScanner;
      imgScan1.Zoom := 100;
      imgScan1.StartScan;
      Application.ProcessMessages;
    finally
      imgScan1.CloseScanner;
      { Show the scanned image in Image1 }
      imgScan1.Picture.LoadFromFile(Image1.Image);
    end;
end;

I take this comment because it work almost perfect is faster than oters components and the control is shiped in windows.

I found a little error in the code but nothing important:

now is: imgScan1.Picture.LoadFromFile(Image1.Image);
should be:  Image1.Picture.LoadFromFile(ImgScan1.Image);


thanks for your Help Tasomia

Thanks for returning and finalizing this.  Also thanks for letting us know why a "B" versus "A" grade was chosen by adding the bug code error information.

what about the version conflicts with the supplied imgScan controls ?

win95 and win98 are incompatible
so is win2k incompatible with the others
(found that out when using VB with these)
