Windows Phone, Hide Video Canvas

Hey There,
I want to detect QR code from camera feed, without displaying the actual video and using the UI to display different controls, is that possible?

Should be possible. Remove the canvas from your UI definition.
But I didn't try it.

I tried removing the canvas once and hiding it another time, both cases the detection method was not fired

Not sure what the right way to do it is, but I just gave the preview image a height and width of 1px and stuck it behind something else. You're right, it doesn't like to fire if it is hidden or missing. But their lowlatency frame grab is 'unbelievably' fast in C# with Win10Mobile. So its worth using.

Thanks,
So to be sure i got you correctly, is the only way to get it working by displaying the video feed?
