    How to simulate camera viewfinder stream in emulator?

    Hi,

    Just had the first steps with the Imaging SDK. One question regarding development with emulator:
    Is there any way to pass a static image stream to camera viewfinder to test camera related functionalities without deploying to a device?

    I did some quick search around the web ad this forum but wasn't able to find solution for this.

    BR,
    mm

    No, that is not supported by the Emulator. In my experience it's quite necessary to test an In-App-Viewfinder on real hardware anyway because behavior is different from device to device and especially between different manufacturers (e.g. supported preview resolutions, values ranges on certain properties, etc.)

    What exactlly would you want to test that way? If it's more centered around processing an image after it was captured I'd suggest to add a method that allows one to pick an image from the library at least for testing purposes.

    I'm using the OpticalReaderTask to read QR-codes and depending on the QR-code that was read, the application chooses between different actions. For testing purposes it would be nice to fake some QR images to the OpticalReaderTask without needing to actually capture any real QR-codes.
