Cancelling scan causes application freeze

Post by DanielLW » Fri Dec 04, 2015 5:33 pm

Hello VS-Team,

first thread was deleted in error, so another one.
Problem: When cancelling the scan process in the scanner driver's progress dialog, the application does not respond anymore. It seems that the method-call of "AcquireModal" does not return in this case (the switch-line is never reached). Here is the code:

Code: Select all

            bool bFinished = false;
            Device deScan = null;
            DeviceManager dmScan = null;
            AcquireModalState amsScan;

            try
            {
                TwainEnvironment.EnableDebugging(@"c:\vstwain.log");

                dmScan = new DeviceManager(this);
                dmScan.Open();
                dmScan.ShowDefaultDeviceSelectionDialog();

                deScan = dmScan.DefaultDevice;
                deScan.Open();

                deScan.ShowUI = false;
                deScan.ModalUI = true;
                deScan.ShowIndicators = true;
                deScan.DisableAfterAcquire = true;
                deScan.TransferMode = Vintasoft.Twain.TransferMode.Native;
                deScan.DocumentFeeder.Enabled = true;
                deScan.PixelType = Vintasoft.Twain.PixelType.BW;
                deScan.Resolution = new Resolution(150, 150);

                do
                {
                    amsScan = deScan.AcquireModal();

                    switch (amsScan)
                    {
                        case AcquireModalState.ImageAcquired:
                            deScan.AcquiredImage.Dispose();
                            break;
                        case AcquireModalState.ScanCanceled:
                        case AcquireModalState.ScanCompleted:
                        case AcquireModalState.ScanFailed:
                        case AcquireModalState.UserInterfaceClosed:
                        case AcquireModalState.None:
                            bFinished = true;
                            break;
                    }
                }
                while (!bFinished);
                
                MessageBox.Show("Finished");
            }
            catch (Exception eError)
            {
                MessageBox.Show(eError.Message);
            }
            finally
            {
                if (deScan != null && deScan.State != DeviceState.Closed)
                {
                    deScan.Close();
                    deScan.Dispose();
                }

                if (dmScan != null && dmScan.State != DeviceManagerState.Closed)
                {
                    dmScan.Close();
                    dmScan.Dispose();
                }
            }
I've also tried this using the async-scanning method, but the behaviour is identical (none of the event-procedures are called). The application freezes, and the main window is disabled.

Scanner is a HP scanjet 5590. When scanning through another twain application (like twacker from twain.org), the problem does not occur.

What can possible cause this behaviour?

Thank you for your support.

Best regards,
Daniel

Hello Daniel,

Please create new advanced log-file and send it to me, we need advanced log because standard log-file does not have enough information for understanding the problem.

Here are steps which you should do if you want to generate an extended log-file of scanner's work:
  • Enable logging (add the lines below to code of your application):

    Code: Select all

    TwainEnvironment.EnableDebugging("d:\vstwain.log")
    TwainEnvironment.DebugLevel = DebugLevel.Debug
  • Run your application.
  • Send us a log-file.
Best regards, Alexander

Hello Daniel,

In version 10.0 we have significantly improved the algorithm that cancels image scanning. I think now SDK should work correctly with your scanner. Please check this and let me know results if possible.

Best regards, Alexander
