Hi guys,

Sorry if this is not OpenCV related though.

I'm wondering if the window which outputs the video via "imshow" in OpenCV can be "borrowed" to be displayed into a .net PictureBox or something?

if you are asking, if it is possible (in c++) to show a cv::Mat in a PictureBox (instead of using imshow()) - yes, it is possible.

but, if you want my 2ct. - if you're a n00b, forget that idea for now. mixing managed/unmanaged c++ code is very painful and error-prone.

last, but not least, - first build your opencv pipeline, when it does, what you wanted to achieve - then build nome nifty gui around it, not the other way round !

Ahem... thanks berak.. I suppose that'll do. Well my C++ development has matured but I prefer putting it into .net for further processing. Point taken.

Naaah I take no offense. But I do confess to my n00bery. Only that I have done enough with the app as I need it to be, that's all.
