L_LTANN_API L_INT L_AnnSaveOffset(fd, nOffset, puSizeWritten, hObject, uFormat, fSelected, pSaveOptions)

L_HFILE fd;

Windows file handle of the file to save

L_SSIZE_T nOffset;

where to embed the saved annotation file

L_SIZE_T *puSizeWritten;

address of the variable to be updated

HANNOBJECT hObject;

handle to the annotation object

L_UINT uFormat;

file format for saving annotation data

L_BOOL fSelected;

flag that indicates which objects to save

pSAVEFILEOPTION pSaveOptions;

pointer to optional extended save options

Saves the specified annotations at a specified position in an existing file.

Parameter Description
fd The Windows file handle of the file to save.
nOffset The offset within the specified file to embed the saved annotation file. For example, if you specify 5, then 5 bytes of other data will precede the embedded file.
puSizeWritten Address of a variable to be updated with the size of the embedded file.
hObject Handle to the annotation object.
uFormat Format for saving annotation data. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  ANNFMT_EMF [0x0006] Use the Windows EMF format.
  ANNFMT_ENCODED [0x0004] Save as a binary format. NOTE: This format has been replaced by ANNFMT_XML, and is no longer supported.
  ANNFMT_NATIVE [0x0000] Use LEAD's own format for annotations.  NOTE: This format has been replaced by ANNFMT_XML, and is no longer supported.
  ANNFMT_WMF [0x0001] Use the Windows WMF format.
  ANNFMT_XML [0x0005] Save as an XML text format. This is LEADs new text based format which is upward compatible. It should be used instead of ANNFMT_NATIVE.
fSelected Flag that indicates which objects to save. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE Save all objects that have the selected property set to TRUE. For getting and setting the selected property, use the L_AnnGetSelected and L_AnnSetSelected functions.
  FALSE Save only the specified object.
pSaveOptions Pointer to a SAVEFILEOPTION structure that contains optional extended save options. This information is used to add annotation pages or replace annotation pages in a multi-page annotation file. Pass NULL to save a one page annotation file.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

In version 15.0, the text based format ANNFMT_XML is replacing ANNFMT_NATIVE and ANNFMT_ENCODED.  Note that ANNFMT_NATIVE and ANNFMT_ENCODED are no longer supported as options with L_AnnSave, L_AnnSaveOffset, and L_AnnSaveMemory.

For backward compatibility, this latest version of LEADTOOLS can read the discontinued formats (ANNFMT_NATIVE and ANNFMT_ENCODED) with the following functions:

L_AnnLoad

L_AnnLoadOffset

L_AnnLoadMemory

L_AnnDeletePage

L_AnnDeletePageOffset

L_AnnDeletePageMemory

The ANNFMT_XML format offers many advantages over the older annotation formats:

Save annotations in the WMF format only for use in another application. LEADTOOLS reads annotations only in the native format.

To retain scaling and positioning information, this function always saves the root container, along with the specified object or selected objects. Use the hObject and fSelected parameters as follows:

This function overwrites existing data at the specified location in the file. You can use this function to update an image that you loaded with the L_AnnLoadOffset function. The offset is specified in bytes. You must open the file and get a Windows file handle before calling this function.

Before calling this function, you must declare a variable of data type L_UINT32. Then, pass the address of the variable in the puSizeWritten parameter. This function will update the variable with the size of the embedded file.

The information in the SAVEFILEOPTION structure can be used to add new pages or replace existing pages in a multi-page annotation file of type ANNFMT_XML. Note that all the pages of an annotation multi-page file must be all of type ANNFMT_XML. An annotation file cannot contain pages of different format types.

To insert new pages to an annotation multi-page file:

1.

Declare a variable of type SAVEFILEOPTION.

2.

Set the uFlags field of the SAVEFILEOPTION structure to ESO_INSERTPAGE.

3.

Set the PageNumber field of the SAVEFILEOPTION structure to the location for insertion. The new page will be inserted in front of the page specified in the PageNumber field.

To replace an existing page in an annotation multi-page file:

1.

Declare a variable of type SAVEFILEOPTION.

2.

Set the uFlags field of the SAVEFILEOPTION structure to ESO_REPLACEPAGE.

3.

Set the PageNumber field of the SAVEFILEOPTION structure to the page to replace.

To delete a page from an annotation multi-page file, use L_AnnDeletePage, L_AnnDeletePageMemory, L_AnnDeletePageOffset.

Example

This sample saves the contents of hContainer into a file pszFile at offset 30

#include <tchar.h> 
L_INT AnnSaveOffsetExample(L_TCHAR *pszFile, HANNOBJECT hContainer) 
{ 
   HANDLE hFileNew = 0; /* File handle */ 
   DWORD dwBytesWritten = 0; 
   L_INT nRet = SUCCESS; 
 
   if (!pszFile) 
      return ERROR_NO_MEMORY ; 
 
   L_SIZE_T SizeWritten = 0;  
   // Create a file 
   hFileNew = CreateFile(pszFile, GENERIC_WRITE, 0, NULL, CREATE_ALWAYS, FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL, 0); 
 
   // Write header information -- 29 characters and a terminator 
   //_write(NewFile, "This is a 29-character string", 30); 
   WriteFile(hFileNew, "This is a 29-character string", 30, &dwBytesWritten, NULL); 
 
   // Save the file with an offset 
   nRet = L_AnnSaveOffset( (L_HFILE)hFileNew, 30, &SizeWritten, hContainer, ANNFMT_XML, FALSE, NULL); 
   if (nRet == SUCCESS) 
      MessageBox(NULL, TEXT("File saved with offset"), TEXT("Notice"), MB_OK); 
   else 
      return nRet; 
 
   // Close the file 
   CloseHandle(hFileNew); 
 
   return SUCCESS; 
}
