LoadSvg(string,int,CodecsLoadSvgOptions) Method

Summary

Loads a page from an image, document or vector file as SVG

Syntax
C#
VB
Objective-C
C++
Public Overloads Function LoadSvg( _ 
   ByVal fileName As String, _ 
   ByVal pageNumber As Integer, _ 
   ByVal options As CodecsLoadSvgOptions _ 
) As ISvgDocument 
- (nullable id<ISvgDocument>)loadSvgFile:(NSString *)file  
                                    page:(NSInteger)pageNumber  
                                 options:(nullable LTCodecsLoadSvgOptions *)options  
                                   error:(NSError **)error 

Parameters

fileName
The input file name.

pageNumber
1-based page number to load.

options
The options used for loading SVG. This can be null.

Return Value

SVG document representation of the page.

Remarks

Use this method to load a page from any supported image, document or vector file as SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics). The following conditions must be met to load a page from a file as SVG:

Condition Description
The file format is SVG

SVG can be loaded as SVG

The file format is document

Any of the document file formats supported by LEADTOOLS such DOCX/DOC, PPTX/PPT, XLSX/XLS, RTF, TXT, AFP, ICA, etc. These formats will set the CodecsDocumentImageInfo.IsDocumentFile property to true when calling GetInformation

The file format is vector

Any of the vector file formats supported by LEADTOOLS such as DXF, DWG, etc. These formats will set the CodecsVectorImageInfo.IsVectorFile property to true when calling GetInformation

The file format is PDF

And the PDF file contains more than pure raster data (for example, not scanned PDF file).

To find out if an input file can be loaded as SVG, use the CanLoadSvg method.

In addition to the usual format filter assembly (Leadtools.Codecs.*), The following additional assemblies may be required to support loading as SVG

Assembly Description
Leadtools.Svg

SVG support. Always required

Leadtools.Vector

Required if the input document is a vector file

Leadtools.Pdf

Required if the input document is a PDF file

Usually, the returned ISvgDocument is to be casted to Leadtools.Svg.SvgDocument to continue working with the other SVG features, such as retrieving its data, rendering it to a target or saving it to a separate file.

You must check the result SVG document flatness and perform the necessary operation before continuing.

To determine whether a file or stream can be loaded as SVG, use CanLoadSvg(string fileName) or CanLoadSvg(Stream stream).

To load as SVG from a stream, use LoadSvg(Stream stream, int pageNumber, CodecsLoadSvgOptions options).

To load as SVG asynchronously, use LoadSvgAsync.

For more information, refer to Working With SVG.

Example

This example will check a folder of document and images files for SVG support then loads the first page of each supported file and saves the result SVG.
