Scanning Documents into PictureBox in Visual Basic

Hello,

I am currently working on an application in Visual Basic.NET and I need a way to scan a document in PaperPort or whatever and have it sent into Visual Basic. I am able to get PaperPort to open Visual Basic, but I need to know how to put the scanned image in the PictureBox control.

If anyone can give me a clue on how to do this, It would be greatly greatly greatly appreciated.

Thank You Sincerely.

Craig.

  • i have no idea how to do this but can say that what you need to research is how to use the TWAIN driver in vb.

  • Well.. There might be a resource that comes with the scanner? I know that Wang Imaging SW that came with windows 98 or office 97 ( I think ) had some resources ( an OCX and an activeX dll if I remember correctly ) that could do this easily. I did try it out and it was no problem.

    Imaging is not distributed with XP and in 2000 you dont have all the imaging functions as you have in the retail version(formaly known as Imaging Professional).

    [blue] Not correct. It's distribited and I use it in my applications [/blue]

    [blue]That's correct partially. To do most common things (simple scanning for example) you do not have to have Proffessional version [/blue]
