ZeroToNegativeCommand Class

Summary

Converts a grayscale unsigned image to a signed image by shifting the image data to the negative side by the amount specified by the user.

Syntax

C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
WinRT C#
C++
public class ZeroToNegativeCommand : RasterCommand 
public sealed class ZeroToNegativeCommand : Leadtools.Imageprocessing.Leadtools.ImageProcessing.IRasterCommand   
@interface LTZeroToNegativeCommand : LTRasterCommand 
public class ZeroToNegativeCommand extends RasterCommand 
function Leadtools.ImageProcessing.Core.ZeroToNegativeCommand() 

Remarks

This command is similar to ConvertUnsignedToSignedCommand. However, MinimumToZeroCommand updates ShiftAmount with the value by which the intensity values were shifted. The updated ShiftAmount value can be passed to ZeroToNegativeCommand to convert the image back to signed (i.e. after using image processing command that works in unsigned 12-16 bit grayscale image). MinimumToZeroCommand and ZeroToNegativeCommand are most often used in concert with one or more image processing or analysis commands. MinimumToZeroCommand converts signed data to unsigned data, in preparation for image processing or analysis commands that work on unsigned image data. After the image processing or analysis is performed, ZeroToNegativeCommand can be used to converts the unsigned data back to signed data. This command is used usually after the command MinimumToZeroCommand. This command updates the Signed property of the RasterImage. This command also updates the MinValue and MaxValue properties of the RasterImage. This command supports signed data images and supports 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images. Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images is available only in the Document/Medical toolkits. However, this command does not support 8-bit images. This command does not support 32-bit grayscale images. In Silverlight versions of LEADTOOLS, this image processing command will fail if the image data for the RasterImage object is stored internally using a Silverlight WriteableBitmap object. For more information, refer to Image Processing Command Limitations in Silverlight.

Example

This command will apply MultiscaleEnhancementCommand on a signed image, but since MultiscaleEnhancementCommand doesn't support signed images, we will convert the image to unsigned image, apply the effect, and then convert it back to signed image.
