Issue Details

I am running a Vision Builder inspection on my Real-Time target (e.g, Smart Camera, Compact Vision System, or Industrial Controller). I hooked up a monitor to my Smart Camera, and I'd like to view my images as they're coming in from the camera. Is this possible?


Yes, you can monitor the images being inspected as they're taken by following these steps:
  1. Open Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (VBAI) on your Smart Camera or other target.
  2. Go to File >> Open and open your inspection.
  3. Go to Target >> Configure Target Options >> Embedded UI, and check Show Inspection Interface.
  4. Click OK to save your changes.
As your images are inspected by your VBAI inspection, you should now be able to see them on your monitor.
