SDK & SDK Support
The DCT Duplex/Simplex Mobile Scanner Development Kit provides an application programming interface (API) for controlling DCT scanners. This interface is implemented as a dynamically linked library (DLL) for the Microsoft Windows platform. Through this interface, application programs are able to easily perform scanner operations such as calibrating the scanner, detecting paper, checking button state, and scanning pages in various scan modes and resolutions. Control is provided for various parameters such as brightness, contrast, gamma, highlight and shadow, and custom lookup tables.
By handling the low-level operation of the scanner hardware, DCT’s scanner API allows system integrators to shorten development time and focus on application-specific development. The DCT API DLL supports Microsoft Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP.
SDK Package Contents:
· Header and library files
· Sample application source code
DCT DocketPort scanners support applications developed using Microsoft .NET-based languages. This is accomplished through two different methods:
(1) Through a thin translation layer implemented in ScannerMng.dll.(2) By using the P/Invoke mechanism to make calls to the low-level driver DLL.

· DocketPort 468
· DocketPort 687
· DocketPort 667
