LFile::ReadFileExtensions

#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LFile::ReadFileExtensions(ppExtensionList, pLoadOptions=NULL)

pEXTENSIONLIST * ppExtensionList;

pointer to a pointer to a structure

pLOADFILEOPTION pLoadOptions;

pointer to optional extended load options

Loads extensions from an Exif file. Please note that not all Exif files have extensions.

Parameter

Description

ppExtensionList

Pointer to a pointer to an EXTENSIONLIST structure to be updated with the extensions read from the specified Exif file.

pLoadOptions

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

Returns

>=0

Length of the comment field.

< 0

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

Currently, this function works only with Exif files. Exif files can contain extra data stored as "FlashPix extensions". This function can be used to access this extra data. LEADTOOLS refers to this extra data as "extensions".

The LFile::LoadExtensionStampfunction can be used to load a stamp from the extension and LFile::GetExtensionAudio can be used to get embedded audio data.

When the memory allocated by this function is no longer needed, call LFile::FreeExtensions to free the memory.

Required DLLs and Libraries
