Pixelink has provided some example code to demonstrate the principles of working with the Pixelink API. Many of the applications were created to help answer a customer support call, and we will continue to add more samples over time, so if you have suggestions, or found a particular feature of the camera confusing in any way, please let us know so that we can improve our documentation and example code.

The most complete set of example projects is currently directed at C and C++.  Even if you aren't using C/C++, you will probably find them useful as it's easy to translate the function calls and constants to C#, VB.NET and so on.

Due to the limited number of requests, we have provided only a few VB6 examples. If you are a VB6 user and encounter any difficulties, please contact Pixelink Support.

The sample code is located in the Samples directory under the Pixelink directory. (e.g. C:\Program Files\PixeLINK\Samples for 32-bit systems, or C:\Program Files (x86)\PixeLINK\Samples for 64-bit systems)
