#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LFile::BrowseDir(pszPath, pszFilter, pThumbOptions, bStopOnError=FALSE, bIncludeSubDirs=FALSE, bExpandMultipage=FALSE, lSizeDisk=0, lSizeMem=0)

L_TCHAR * pszPath;

directory to browse

L_TCHAR * pszFilter;

file filter, ex *.jpg

pTHUMBOPTIONS pThumbOptions;

pointer to thumbnail options structure

L_BOOL bStopOnError;

stop on error flag

L_BOOL bIncludeSubDirs;

True/False to recurse sub directories

L_BOOL bExpandMultipage;

True/False to expand multipage files

L_INT32 lSizeDisk;

maximum size of file to load

L_INT32 lSizeMem;

maximum size of image to load

Browses the specified directory for supported images, and generates thumbnails for each image file that is found.

Parameter Description
pszPath Character string containing the name of the directory to browse for images
pszFilter Character string containing the file filter to use for browsing. Ex. *.jpg
pThumbOptions Pointer to a structure containing the thumbnail creation options for the browser.
bStopOnError Flag that indicates whether or not to stop generating thumbnails when an error occurs. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE Stop generating thumbnails if an error occurs.
  FALSE Do not stop generating thumbnails if an error occurs.
bIncludeSubDirs Flag that indicates whether or not to recurse subdirectories when looking for files. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE Recurse subdirectories.
  FALSE Do not recurse subdirectories.
bExpandMultipage Flag that indicates whether or not to expand multipage files. If True, each page from a multipage file will be loaded. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE Expand multipage files, loading each page from a multipage file.
  FALSE Do not expand multipage files.
lSizeDisk Maximum size of file to load. Use this to limit the size of images that the browse will attempt to load. Pass 0 for no limit.
lSizeMem Maximum size of image in memory to load. Use this to limit the size of images that the browse will attempt to load. Pass 0 for no limit.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

Use this function to browse a directory for image files that LEADTOOLS supports. Each supported file that is found will be loaded, and a thumbnail will be generated for the image. In the callback function, you can process the thumbnail in any manner your application requires. For example, you can add the thumbnails to the LEADTOOLS ImageList Control.

If 0 is specified for either nThumbHeight or nThumbWidth, the image will not be resized. The whole image will be returned in the LFile::BrowseDirCallBack function.

If -1 is specified for either the nThumbHeight or nThumbWidth, the image will not be loaded at all. The LFile::BrowseDirCallBack function will be called for each file, but will only receive file information, not a valid image.
