Name Description

The default resolution of the selected camera device.


The most recently used resolution.


The resolution is specified by the ManualResolution property (TakePictureDialogShowingEventArgs.ManualResolution and TakePictureDialog.ManualResolution).

The following example handles the PictureEdit.TakePictureDialogShowing event to apply the maximum resolution supported by a camera device.

    e.ResolutionMode = ResolutionMode.Maximum;
