Hi everyone !

I am trying to extract a point from a contour in opencv android, but I can't seem to find an equivalent for cvGetSeqElem, so I don't really know what to do. Here is my code :

            Imgproc.findContours(mGray, contours, new Mat(), Imgproc.RETR_LIST, Imgproc.CHAIN_APPROX_SIMPLE);
            Mat maxContour = contours.get(idx);

            for(int i=0; i<;i++)
                Point v= ? //This is where I would write new Point(Imgproc.cvGetSeqElem(maxContour, i)) 

Does someone know the android equivalent for cvGetSeqElem? Or some other way to extract the points?

Edit : The question is solved. I just thought I would post the working code in case someone is interested. I get the biggest contour detected and extract the points from it :

          List<MatOfPoint>contours= new ArrayList<MatOfPoint>();
          Imgproc.findContours(mGray, contours, new Mat(), Imgproc.RETR_LIST, Imgproc.CHAIN_APPROX_SIMPLE);
          for (int idx = 0; idx < contours.size(); idx++) 
                MatOfPoint contour = contours.get(idx);
                double contourarea = Imgproc.contourArea(contour);
                if (contourarea > maxContourArea) 
                         maxContour = contour;
                         maxContourArea = contourarea;
                         maxAreaIdx = idx;

          points_contour = maxContour.toArray();
          nbPoints = points_contour.length; 

          for(int i=0; i< nbPoints;i++)
                  Point v=points_contour[i];

With the function findContours, contours parameter is a MatOfPoint, therefore, with toArray, you can use the points stored:

int nbPoints = contours.length();
Point points = contours.toArray();
for( int i = 0 ; i < nbPoints ; ++i )
    Point v = points[i];

See the doc here and here.
