TIEVisionBlobDetector.detect

TIEVisionBlobDetector.detect


Declaration

function detect(image: TIEVisionImage): TIEVisionVectorKeyPoint; safecall;


Description

Searches blobs inside the specified image and return a vector of found keypoints.
This method fills only 'pt' and 'size' fields of key points records.



Parameter Description
image Image where to search for blobs.



Note: You can draw the points to a canvas using DrawRects
