LoadInformation Event

Summary

Occurs during loading of a file for which LEADTOOLS cannot recognize the format.

Syntax
C#
VB
Java
C++
public event EventHandler<CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs> LoadInformation 
Public Event LoadInformation As EventHandler(Of CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs) 
synchronized public void addLoadInformationListener(CodecsLoadInformationListener listener) 
synchronized public void removeLoadInformationListener(CodecsLoadInformationListener listener) 
public: 
event EventHandler<CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs^>^ LoadInformation 

Event Data

The event handler receives an argument of type CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs containing data related to this event. The following CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs properties provide information specific to this event.

PropertyDescription
BitsPerPixel Gets or sets the bits per pixel of the image data in the file.
Format Gets the image file format.
Height Gets or sets the image height in pixels.
LeastSignificantBitFirst Gets or sets a value specifying whether the image data was saved with least significant bit first or last.
MotorolaOrder Gets or sets a value that determines whether image data is in Motorola byte order.
Offset Gets or sets the position of the first byte of image data.
Order Gets or sets the byte order for the load process.
Pad4 Gets or sets a value indicating whether the image data was saved padded to 4-byte boundary.
PhotoInterpolation Gets or sets the photometric interpolation for the load process.
PlanarConfiguration Gets or sets the planar configuration.
Reverse Gets or sets a value that determines whether each line is reversed (mirrored).
Signed Gets or sets a value that determines whether the image data is signed.
Stream Gets the stream used by the load process.
StripSize Gets or sets the size of the data strip before it is decompressed.
ViewPerspective Gets or sets the view perspective for the load process.
WhiteOnBlack Gets or sets a value that determines if the image is black-on-white or white on black.
Width Gets or sets the image width in pixels.
XResolution Gets or sets the horizontal resolution for rendering the image, specified in dots per inch.
YResolution Gets or sets the vertical resolution for rendering the image, specified in dots per inch.

Remarks

The LoadInformation event will occur when LEADTOOLS cannot recognize the image file format during a call to GetInformation or GetInformationAsync. This event can be used for loading raw FAX data (CCITT Group 3 or Group 4), raw run-length-encoded data (4-bit or 8-bit), raw Bitfield compressed data, raw PackBits compressed data or raw uncompressed data.

To load a raw fax file, you must subscribe to this event first. When the toolkit fails to recognize the image file format, it will fire this event. If you know the size of the fax image, then set the values in the CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs.Width and CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs.Height properties of the CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs passed as the event data. To automatically detect the width and height of the fax file, set CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs.Width and CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs.Height to -1.

To load raw uncompressed data, you must subscribe to this event first. When the toolkit fails to recognize the image file format, it will fire this event. Set the CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs.Format property to RasterImageFormat.Raw. Valid values must also be set for the following properties:

If each line of RAW data is padded so that the number of bytes is a multiple of 4 (as is the case with raw Windows BMP data), set CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs.Pad4 to true. Include an orientation in the CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs.ViewPerspective to load with the proper orientation. For example, raw Windows BMP data is stored with a RasterViewPerspective.BottomLeft orientation. If the orientation is unknown, then set it to RasterViewPerspective.BottomLeft. If the raw data is 8 bits per pixel or less, then the image is palettized and a palette must be generated. If this is the case, pass in a valid palette with 1 << bits/pixel (2 ^ BitsPerPixel) number of entries to the CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs.SetPalette method.

Set the correct color order in the CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs.Order property. For example, if the order of the data is BGR, then set this value to RasterByteOrder.Bgr.

For more information, refer to CodecsLoadInformationEventArgs.

Example

This example demonstrates saving and loading raw/headerless image files.
