Hi all, I want to show a UIImage in processImage:(Mat&)image method, but it does not work. I used this code:

UIImage *imgSegnale = [UIImage imageNamed:@"testImage.png"];
self.imgViewSegnale.image = imgSegnale;

If I add this code in viewDidLod method, it works. Also work if I add this code in a (IBAction) method (using a button). But it don't work if I add this code in processImage:(Mat&)image method.

Any suggestion?

Best regards Costantino

Is this C++ or Java or Python code? Havent seen these structures yet, so it looks kind of weird in the openCV context.

This is Objective-C code. I followed this tutorial and in "processImage:(Mat&)image" method I used grabCut() function. So, I converted cv::Mat resulting image in UIImage structure to display it in UIImageView (imgViewSegnale in the code that I wrote before ). Well, the captured image is not displayed. So I tried to display a "static" image (testImage.png) instead of the captured image, but nothing.

(I'm sorry but I do not know English very well and I find it hard to express myself)

try to get main thread.

dispatch_sync(dispatch_get_main_queue(), ^{
    UIImage *imgSegnale = [UIImage imageNamed:@"testImage.png"];
    [self.imgViewSegnale setImage:imgSegnale];
    [self.view setNeedsDisplay];

Are you sure that processImage method is called? Try to add some output to Console, e.g. through NSLog.

processImage is called. In fact in this method I perform many operations (space color conversion from RGB to HVS, find contour, shape detection and grabCut) and I see result of operations.
