Zire71CamJPG HB++ Package
Sample App & Image
Sample App & Image

Version 1.0 Released April 2, 2004!

Zire71CamJPG is an HB++ Package designed for use on the Zire71 device with its built in camera. ZireCamJPG provides Zire71 camera integration functions for your application, including the ability to capture photos in your application and save them to JPG files, as well as display existing JPG files.

Zire71CamJPG employs PACE Native Object (PNO, formerly called Armlet) functions for extremely fast JPG encoding and decoding.

JPG images files stored as binary resources, or as JPG streamed files in the Palm's main memory (RAM), and standard JPG files on VFS expansion cards are supported. They are passed to the encoding and decoding functions as a standard HB++ stream object.

JPG images are captured and encoded into a JPG file at either 640x480, 320x240, or 160x120 high density 16 bit colour mode, as these are the photo sizes supported by the Zire71 camera. The camera presents a live image preview in either 160x120 or 320x240 mode, according to your specification.

JPG images taken from the camera or from other sources are decoded to the dimensions and density (standard or high density) that you specify, and copied into a bitmap object that you define in your application. Once the image has been decoded into the bitmap, you can display and maniuplate that bitmap using the standard HB++ methods.

A modified version of the HB++ CameraZire71 sample application is provided, demonstrating how to use the Zire71CamJPG package to capture and display JPG photos. It also demonstrates how you can decode a JPG image to an output bitmap larger than the display, and scroll around the image using pen control.
