Using ImageKit to Scan

AllanChin.6924AllanChin.6924 USUniversity ✭✭✭

Does anybody know how to even start this? I implemented an IKDeviceBrowserView, no problem, and it does enumerate scanners. The first question I would have is what does "local" mean in DisplaysLocalScanners? I have a USB and a network scanner installed and setting DisplaysLocalScanners to true only enumerates the USB scanner. But more importantly, how do I get the SelectedDevice as documented here.

The Xamarin documentation does not even list it as a method,

And how do I get the SelectionDidChange event as documented here.

The Xamarin documentation does not even have it to override,

The C# Example here is pretty useless :/ .

Any help here would be much appreciated.

    As you found here the relevant APIs are not bound currently, so the first step is for someone to bind it.

    I believe you've made a request via support for help/someone to do this, which will be handled via e-mail, but I'm going to answer this in general:

    If someone is interested in an API that is unbound, I would suggest the following steps:

    • Search for a issue
    • File a new one if not found, else comment on the existing on with your use case. We prioritize bindings on our backlog based on customer demand.
    • If you have a support contact or other associated channel, raise your request via it as well.
    • If you want it to happen quickly and don't mind getting your hands dirty, we can help you work on it yourself. Xamarin.Mac is open source after all. Drop by and let us know you are interested. We'll help you get started and point you in the right direction.
