How to save user-defined camera parameters? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!
    Here's the problem:
    My application is supposed to run 24/7.  The user sets up the camera (which
    camera, what type - PAL/NTSC, Brightness, Hue, Flip Horizontal, etc.) using
    the Vendor supplied setup screens.  If for some reason the computer shuts
    down (power failure, etc.) and then is turned on again, the application
    starts to work automatically.

    I need a way to save all the user's definitions (a dump to a binary file - I
    don't have to know what they are exactly) so that I can read them, and
    "inject them" to use as defaults when the program automatically starts on
    its own.  This way the user will not have to be involved in setting up all
    the parameters again.

    Is there any way to do this?
    Thanks for any/all ideas,
