L_WriteFileCommentExt

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTFIL_API L_INT L_WriteFileCommentExt (pszFile, uType, pComments, pSaveOptions)

L_TCHAR* pszFile;

file name

L_UINT uType;

type of comment

pFILECOMMENTS pComments;

pointer to a FILECOMMENTS structure containing information about the comments

pSAVEFILEOPTION pSaveOptions;

pointer to optional extended save options

Writes a comment into a FlashPix file. Only used to change a comment in an existing file.

Parameter

Description

pszFile

Character string containing the FlashPix file name.

uType

The type of comment. Refer to Types of File Comments. For more information concerning FlashPix file comments, see FlashPix File Comments.

pComments

Pointer to a structure which contains one data value and two pointers. The data value indicates the number of comments stored. One pointer points to an array of pointers which in turn point to individual Comments. The other pointer points to an array of integers which indicate the size of each Comment stored.

pSaveOptions

Pointer to optional extended save options. Pass NULL to use the default save options.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

Presently this function only works with FlashPix format files.

To write comments to a file, all the comments to be added to the file must be set using L_SetComment. L_SetComment, by itself, does not write a comment to a file, it prepares the values for the next save. Once all comments are set, the comments are saved using any function which saves files, such as L_SaveFile or L_SaveBitmap when creating a new file.

To save TIFF comments without overwriting a saved image, use L_WriteFileComment.
