AddColorToRegion Method

Summary

Creates or updates the image region by adding a region that consists of all the pixels of a specified color.

Syntax
C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
C++
public void AddColorToRegion( 
   RasterColor color, 
   RasterRegionCombineMode combineMode 
) 
Public Sub AddColorToRegion( _ 
   ByVal color As RasterColor, _ 
   ByVal combineMode As RasterRegionCombineMode _ 
)  
- (BOOL)addColorToRegion:(LTRasterColor *)color  
             combineMode:(LTRasterRegionCombineMode)combineMode  
                   error:(NSError **)error 
public void addColorToRegion( 
  RasterColor color,  
  RasterRegionCombineMode combineMode 
) 
public: 
void AddColorToRegion(  
   RasterColor color, 
   RasterRegionCombineMode combineMode 
)  

Parameters

color
Specifies the color to use for the region.

combineMode
The action to take regarding the existing image region, if one is defined.

Remarks

You can use this method to simulate the use of a transparent color as follows:

  1. Call AddColorToRegion, with the transparent color in the color parameter and RasterRegionCombineMode.SetNot in the combineMode parameter.
  2. Call PaintRegion to paint the resulting region, which includes everything in the image, except the transparent color.

To update an existing region, specify how the new region is to be combined with the existing one using the combineMode parameter. For more information, refer to RasterRegionCombineMode.

The AddColorToRegion function can use the Extended Grayscale mask. For more information, refer to Grayscale Images

For more information, refer to Creating a Region.

For more information, refer to Saving A Region.

For more information, refer to Working with the Existing Region.

This method supports unsigned data images, but not signed ones.

In the Document and Medical toolkits, the COLORREF value can represent a 16 bit grayscale value if RasterImage is a 12 or 16-bit grayscale bitmap. To avoid confusion with an RGB value, set the COLORREF_GRAY16 mask (0x04000000). In this case (0x0400YYYY), the lower 16 bits (0xYYYY) of the COLORREF value represent the 16-bit grayscale value. (0x0400FFFF is 16-bit white and 0x04000000 is 16-bit black.) This is not a standard Windows value. Therefore, although LEADTOOLS methods will recognize a COLORREF having this format, but Windows methods will not.

Example

This example will load an image, adds a region all pixels of a specified color. It then fills the region with blue before saving it back to disk.
