Tags Property

Summary

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether any tags found in the file should be automatically loaded.

Syntax

C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
C++
public bool Tags { get; set; } 

Public Property Tags As Boolean 

@property (nonatomic, assign) BOOL tags 

public boolean getTags() 
public void setTags(boolean value) 

public: 
property bool Tags { 
   bool get(); 
   void set (    bool ); 
} 

Property Value

true to automatically load any tags found in the file; otherwise it is false.

Remarks

When the value of the Tags property is set to true, any subsequent load operation performed by this RasterCodecs object will automatically try to load all the tags found in the file and store them in the RasterImage.Tags collection of the resulting image.

Internally, the RasterCodecs object will call TagsSupported on the image and only tries to load the tags if the value returned was true.

When loading more than one page from a multi-page file, only the tags found in the first page will be automatically loaded when the value of this property is set to true. To manually load all the tags in any page, use ReadTags.

You must set the value of the Markers property to false to enable automatically loading the tags. If the value of both Markers and Tags is set to true, then the markers will take take precedence and no tags will be loaded.

Note that any load method that uses tiles, offset or resizing will not load any file metadata automatically regardless of the value of this property.

Example

This example will browse to a file and load it along with any tags, geo-keys and comments found.
