Camera with C# for Windows 8.1 WPF Project RRS feed

  • Question

  • can I use the internal camera within a Projekt to take a picture? From the picture read a QRCode and store in a local access database. Sorry for the restriction i have no change to have a SQL Database.

    With winRT Take a Picture und read QRCode is not a Problem -> but no possibility to store information in a AccessDatabase

    With Desktop Application WPF it is no problem to read and write to Access Database but i can not get a Picture

    any idear?

  • I understand that you don't want to/can't use a big SQL server database but what is the problem in using a SQLite database. It's in-process and doesn't cost licensing fees.

    If you really want to use access with a WinRT App it gets really complicated with COM calls from a WinRT application to a hosted broker on the Desktop. So my suggestion would be to look into SQLite for the data storage.
