Parameter Description Example
path The path to the folder to use for storing image files. If empty clears the file path "/Users/cs/Desktop/"


Returns OK on success.


Sets the folder path for storing image files.
If you set the path with this function, images are not available with the Twain.CurrentImage function and Twain.ImageCount returns always zero. But with Twain.GetFilePaths you can learn where files have been stored.
The path must end with a slash on Mac and a backslash on Windows.

This function requires a native path. Use Path.FileMakerPathToNativePath to convert a FileMaker path to a native path if required. If you like to have the user choose the path, you can use FileDialog functions.
