How to detect paper not inserted properly?

How do I detect if the paper is not properly inserted into the scanner, ie hitting the paper indicator clip?

Hello Bill,

Please read the "Error Trapping" topic in the "Getting Started" section of documentation.

Here is an example that demonstrates how to intercept paper jam or double feeding of paper:

Code: Select all

Public Sub ScanWithUI()
    ' set the application name
    VSTwain1.AppProductName = "MyTwainApplication"
        ' initialize the library
        ' show "Select Source" dialog
        ' enable the user interface (false - disable the user interface)
        VSTwain1.ShowUI = true
        ' start asynchronous acquisition process
    Catch ex As TwainException
        MsgBox ex.Message
    End Try
End Sub
Private Sub VSTwain1_ScanCompleted(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
                Handles VSTwain1.ScanCompleted
    ' show error message if error occur
    If VSTwain1.ErrorCode <> ErrorCode.None Then
        If VSTwain1.ErrorCode = ErrorCode.FeederProblem Then
            MsgBox("Paper is jammed or double feeded.")
        End If
    ' show message "Scan process is completed."
        MsgBox("Scan process is completed.")
    End If
End Sub
Best regards, Alexander
