LMemoryFile::ReadComment

#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LMemoryFile::ReadComment(LMemoryBuffer, pLCommentBuffer, uType, pLoadFileOption=NULL)

LBuffer& LMemoryBuffer;

an LBuffer object

LBuffer * pLCommentBuffer;

pointer to an LBuffer object

L_UINT uType;

type of comment

pLOADFILEOPTION pLoadFileOption;

pointer to optional extended load options

Gets a comment field from a file in memory.

Parameter

Description

LMemoryBuffer

A LEAD LBuffer object that contains the file in memory.

pLCommentBuffer

A LEAD LBuffer object to be updated with the comment field, including the terminating NULL. You can pass NULL if you only want to get the length of the field (the return value).

uType

The type of comment. Refer to Types of File Comments.

pLoadFileOption

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

Some file formats can contain comments, and some cannot, and each file format has its own set of comment types. When you save a file, the comments, which LEADTOOLS maintains in a global array, are saved in the file. The index into the array (specified using a constant) determines the type of comment, as described in Types of File Comments.

Before saving a file, you use the LFileSettings::SetComment function to specify the comments to be saved.

The [LMemoryFile:ReadComment function lets you read comments that are already saved in a file in memory. For more information refer to the LFileSettings::SetComment function.

Note: More options are available in the LOADFILEOPTION structure.

Note: This function does not support Kodak FlashPix files.

The LMemoryBuffer parameter is passed by reference, and is a required parameter.
