Aborting Multi-page Scans from Within the Scan Event Handler

Bill Knox Feb 20, 2013 04:34AM EST

Is there any way to abort scanning subsequent pages when the Scan Event detects an error condition in a scanned page? I have a multi-page document and want to abort further scanning if the document was not scanned at the proper resolution or with the proper number of bits/pixel. I’ve tried various things and read the documentation but have yet to determine a way to cause the scanning to stop.

I am using Version of the ImageMan TWAIN Active X control (which dates back to 2001) on a FoxPro 6 form. I know. This is going back a way but this is the license that we have and the product is working just great for us in this environment.

Hello Bill,

Sorry in the V 7.,xx ActiveX there is no way to cancel the scans when scanning multiple pages.

That would be possible with the Version 8 controls which are the current version. You can get more info from our website and upgrade from the My Products page on our website at

Thanks for your interest in our products and please let us know if you have any questions.
