loadFromUri Method

Summary

Loads a document from existing data stored in a remote URL.

Syntax
TypeScript
JavaScript
loadFromUri = function( 
   uri, 
   options 
) 
static loadFromUri( 
   uri: string, 
   options: LoadDocumentOptions 
): JQueryPromise<LEADDocument>; 

Parameters

uri

The uri to get the data from. It can be the DocumentId string of a LEADDocument that is already in the cache.

options

The LoadDocumentOptions object to create the LEADDocument with.

Return Value

A Promise object that can resolve successfully to a LEADDocument object, or fail if the LEADDocument cannot be created from the uri.

Remarks

Note that the uri parameter can point to a document stored in HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, or Disk file (using file protocol).

If the uri parameter to this method points to a LEADDocument that was uploaded to the cache via UploadDocument or UploadFile (verified via IsUploadDocumentUri), then this method performs just like LoadFromCache but with a uri instead of a document ID.

LoadFromUri creates a LEADDocument object from any supported image or document file format stored in a disk file or remote URL. The returned object can then be used to retrieve any page as image or SVG, to obtain the text using SVG or OCR, or to use the annotations or the document structure such as links and bookmarks.

Refer to Loading Using LEADTOOLS Document Library for detailed information on how to use this method and the various options available.

Example

This example will load a PDF document stored in a remote URL.
