The collection of comment data used when reading and writing certain file formats (including GIF).

Syntax

C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
WinRT C#
C++
public RasterCollection<RasterCommentMetadata> Comments { get; } 
Public ReadOnly Property Comments As Leadtools.RasterCollection(Of RasterCommentMetadata) 
@property (nonatomic, assign, readonly, nullable) NSMutableArray<LTRasterCommentMetadata *> *comments 
public RasterCollection<RasterCommentMetadata> getComments() 
 get_Comments();  

Property Value

A collection of RasterCommentMetadata used when reading and writing certain file formats (including GIF).

Remarks

Several formats allow you to store non-image data such as comments, tags, and markers.

You can manipulate the comments of an image by adding/removing RasterCommentMetadata objects to this collection.

By setting the CodecsSaveOptions.Comments property to true before calling RasterCodecs.Save, you can save the comments in this collection when the image is saved into a file.

By setting the CodecsLoadOptions.Markers property to true before calling RasterCodecs.Load, you can load all the markers (if any) into this collection when an image is loaded from a file.

You can use the RasterCodecs.WriteMarkers method to save the markers directly to an existing file.

For more information, refer to Non Image Data and Types of File Comments.
