Load(string) Method

Summary

Loads the OCR engine settings from a disk file.

Syntax

C#
VB
C++
public void Load( 
   string fileName 
) 

Overloads Sub Load( _ 
   ByVal fileName As String _ 
)  

void Load(  
   String^ fileName 
)  

Parameters

fileName
The name of the file containing the settings.

Remarks

Once you set up the OCR engine, you can re-use these settings by saving the engine state into memory or to an XML file on disk. You can later reload these settings and use them in the same or different instance of IOcrEngine.

The following table lists all of the states loaded from the XML file. After the load operation completes, some or all of the settings below will be changed.

Part Members
IOcrSettingManager (accessed through IOcrEngine.SettingManager All the settings as obtained through IOcrSettingManager.GetSettingNames
IOcrLanguageManager (accessed through IOcrEngine.LanguageManager The value of IOcrLanguageManager.GetEnabledLanguages
IOcrSpellCheckManager (accessed through IOcrEngine.SpellCheckManager The values of IOcrSpellCheckManager.SpellCheckEngine and IOcrSpellCheckManager.SpellLanguage.
IOcrDocumentManager (accessed through IOcrEngine.DocumentManager The values of the IOcrDocumentManager.RejectionSymbol and IOcrDocumentManager.MissingSymbol.

You can save the settings to a disk file using Save, you can load and save the settings into any .NET stream using Load and Save.

Example

This example changes some OCR engine settings and saves them to a file. It shuts down the engine, restarts it and reloads the last settings used.
