It identifies the length of each pad pixel mask record, in bytes. When present, the length of each pad pixel mask record is 4 bytes. The total length of the pad pixel mask records is equal to uTMRLNTH * uNBPR * uNBPC * uNBANDS (one 4 bytes record for each block for each band in the image).
uTPXCDLNTH * Value that represents the pad output pixel code length. This member is valid only if the value of the pIC member is set to "NM", "M1", "M3", "M4", or "M5". It identifies the length in bits of the pad output pixel code. If coded as 0, then no pad pixels are present, and the pTPXCD member is not recorded. If the value of the pIC member is set to "M3", the value of this member shall be set to 0.
pTPXCD * Pointer to a character string that contains the pad output pixel code. This member is valid only if the value of the pIC member is set to "NM", "M1", "M3", "M4", or "M5" and the value of the uTPXCDLNTH member is not zero. It contains the output pixel code that represents a pad pixel in the image. This value is unique within the image, and allows the user to identify pad pixels. The pad output pixel code length is determined by the uTPXCDLNTH member. If the number of bits used by pTPXCD member is less than the number of bits available for storage, the value shall be justified in accordance with the pPJUST member in the image sub-header (L for left, R for right justified.)

Comments

pIMAGEHEADER is a pointer to a IMAGEHEADER structure. Where a function parameter type is pIMAGEHEADER, declare an IMAGEHEADER variable and pass the variable's address in the parameter. Declaring a pIMAGEHEADER variable is necessary only if the program requires a pointer.

The following functions make use of this structure:

L_NITFGetImageHeader

L_NITFSetImageHeader
