Function Map
Save a 3D metrology context to a file.
void M3dmetSave(
MIL_ID Context3dmetId, //in
MIL_INT64 ControlFlag //in

This function saves all the information about a previously allocated 3D metrology context to disk.

To load a saved context, use either M3dmetRestore() or M3dmetStream().

Note that this function reference has not been updated for a MIL system added during a MIL update. Refer to the MIL system's release note to see if there is complementary information.
This function is not supported on the selected boards.

Specifies the name and path of the file in which to save the 3D metrology context; it is recommended that you use the M3DMET file extension for easier use with other Matrox Imaging software products. The function internally handles the opening and closing of this file. If this file already exists, it will be overwritten.

This parameter can be set to one of the following values:
