Ciansoft TwainControlX is an ActiveX control that enables images to be imported from TWAIN compliant devices such as scanners or cameras. It is designed to be easy to use, with no knowledge of TWAIN being needed to achieve results. Importing an image is done in four simple programming steps: (1) selecting the device to be used from a list generated by the control, (2) configuring any non-default settings that are required, such as resolution, image size etc., (3) acquiring the image, and finally (4) copying the image to another control for display, saving to a file, or copying to the clipboard. Acquisition of multiple images and use of automatic document feeders (ADF) is supported. Fully functional trial version is available in which the only limitation is that a line of text is added to the image showing that trial software has been used.
