MATRIX VISION - mvBlueCOUGAR-X/-XD Technical Documentation
Creating user set entries

With MATRIX VISION GenICam compliant devices it is possible to store up to five configuration sets (4 user plus one factory default) in the camera.

This feature is similar to the storing settings functionality, which saves the settings in the registry. However, as mentioned before the user sets are stored in the camera.

The user set stores

permanently and is independent of the computer which in used.

Additionally, you can select, which user set comes up after hard reset.

Note
The storage of user data in the registry can still override user set data!
User sets are cleared after firmware change.

Working with the user sets

You can find the user set control in "Setting -> Base -> Camera -> GenICam -> User Set Control":

Figure 1: User Set Control

With "User Set Selector" you can select the user set ("Default", "UserSet1 - UserSet4"). To save or load the specific user set, you have two functions:

  • "int UserSetLoad()" and
  • "int UserSetSave()".

"User Set Default" is the property, where you can select the user set, which comes up after hard reset.

Finally, with "mv User Data" you have the possibility to store arbitrary user data.
