Guessing TWAIN custom capabilities

  • 1.- Install Twirl TWAIN Probe

  • 2.- Start it and select your scanner from the combobox. Click "4 Souce Open", then "Monitor" so Twirl displays changes in every cap.

  • 3.- Make sure "Show device UI" is selected, then click "5 Source Enabled".

  • 4.- Change values you want to guess in the custom TWAIN UI, then either close it or do a full scan (depending on the maker/model, changes might be not triggered until you scan).

  • 5.- Watch changed caps in the text area, check the possible values for those caps in the caps list.

  • 6.- Document discovered information, test in custom program and enjoy!
