Image-Pro Plus 7.0 System Requirements

Software Development Kit (SDK)

The Image-Pro Plus 7.0 Software Development Kit (SDK) offers a powerful development environment for OEMs, systems integrators, and end users to create tailored versions of Image-Pro Plus. Unlike programming toolkits, the SDK offers a proven host environment that can be easily and quickly customized to solve specific imaging applications without starting from scratch, thereby reducing development risk and cost.

The SDK includes a powerful Plug-In Wizard that lets you automatically generate an entire C++ project including source code, resource file, and project file. You can compile and link with Image-Pro Plus with little or no effort. If you are an image processing programmer, use the SDK as a quick and easy prototype development tool. With the host already in place, you can focus on what is important - algorithm development.

The Image-Pro SDK makes it easy to develop custom plug-ins and add them into existing Media Cybernetics software menus and toolbars. With this powerful kit, you can add features that are unique to your particular application, or tailor a version of Image-Pro Plus to suit a specific vertical market.



Use the Image-Pro Plus SDK to:

  • Choose C, C++/MFC, VB, or J++ to develop your plug-in.
  • Tailor Image-Pro's menus to your specifications.
  • Create plug-ins that can be called from Image-Pro's user interface.
  • Create plug-ins that can read/write data directly from/to an active image in Image-Pro Plus.
  • Create a setup disk to install your custom plug-in.
  • Control external devices.
  • Modify menus and toolbars.

On-line help and examples for each of the supported development languages are included. Examples are designed to assist users in easily accessing serial I/O ports, ASCII files, and read/write overlays.

Image-Pro Plus SDK System Requirements

  • Must have Image-Pro Plus 7.x installed & running with license key. See the Image-Pro Plus System Requirements page.
  • Approximately 3 Mbytes of disk space to hold the SDK files

Image-Pro Plus SDK Supported Programming Environments

Visual Basic 6
Visual Studio 2003
Visual Studio 2005
Visual Studio 2008 (preferred)
Visual Studio Express 2008
Visual Basic

(1) C++ under Visual Studio 2008 is the preferred SDK development platform. VB.Net and C# have some limits, primarily that: 

  • Get( ) functions must be derived for each variable type, such as 'short int', 'float', etc., as VB.Net and C# are more strongly typed.
  • Icons for new tools/toolbar buttons must come from those shown in Icon_List.tif
  • Automation extensions must follow the application object model (MyTool.DoStuff) rather than the Image_Pro function model (ret = IpMyTool( )).

 (2) Visual Studio Express C++ cannot be used with the SDK, as several required libraries are not supported.

SDK Plug-In Distribution

You may distribute Media Cybernetics plug-in modules developed with the SDK per the SDK License Agreement. Plug-ins created with the SDK require a valid copy of a Media Cybernetics application in order to run. Check with your dealer or contact a Media Cybernetics sales office for information on site license volume discounts on these applications.

3rd Party Developer Marketing Opportunity

Advertise your SDK plug-ins for free on Media Cybernetics' Solutions Zone web site at www.Solutions-Zone.com
