Load(string) Method

Summary

Loads the specified image file using default options.

Syntax
C#
VB
Objective-C
C++
public RasterImage Load( 
   string fileName 
) 
Public Overloads Function Load( _ 
   ByVal fileName As String _ 
) As RasterImage 
- (nullable LTRasterImage *)loadFile:(NSString *)file  
                               error:(NSError **)error 
public: 
RasterImage^ Load(  
   String^ fileName 
)  

Parameters

fileName
A String containing the name of the image file to load.

Return Value

The RasterImage object that this method loads.

Remarks

The file can be in any supported image file format and bits per pixel, whether compressed or uncompressed.

This method can load all the pages in a multi-page file. For more information, refer to the last remark. The resulting image will have the same bits/pixel and color order value of the image as it was stored in the file.

LEADTOOLS will attempt to load corrupted files so you can see at least a portion of the image. For these images, the load methods succeed, but LoadStatus will return an error code.

Use the CodecsLoadOptions class to set up other load option parameters before calling this method.

Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale, and 48 and 64-bit color images is only available in the Document/Medical Imaging editions.

For supported formats, refer to Summary of All Supported Image File Formats.

LEADTOOLS loads all PDF files as Raster PDF uncompressed RasterImageFormat.RasPdf, regardless of the compression and color space used when saving the file.

The CodecsLoadOptions.AllPages property controls whether RasterCodecs will try to load all pages or just the first page if the image data contains multiple pages. To load a single page from a file, use Load(string fileName, int pageNumber).

Example

This example will load all the pages from a single multi-page file
