LEADTOOLS supports your programming endeavors with thousands of function examples, tutorials, and demo programs.
Demo programs showcase LEADTOOLS core features, and demonstrate some of the simple, yet powerful applications that can be produced with LEADTOOLS.
LEADTOOLS demo executables show and allow you to manipulate basic toolkit functionality through a simple user interface. Demo executables are found on the installation path in the appropriate platform subdirectory of the \BIN\ folder (for example: <LEADTOOLS_INSTALLDIR>\Bin\CDLL\Win32).
LEADTOOLS includes complete demo project source code for hundreds of LEADTOOLS features, (including those shown in demo executables). This enables you to see, manipulate, and copy demonstrated program functionality. Demo project source code is found on the installation path in the appropriate platform subdirectory of the \EXAMPLES\ folder (for example, <LEADTOOLS_INSTALLDIR>\examples\multimedia\Ltms\Cpp\).
Refer to Media Streaming SDK Example Programs and Demos for a table listing the different demo source code projects and executables available.
Downloadable Demos for LEADTOOLS core functionality are published to our website and updated using Microsoft ClickOnce technology. Additional demos are available under relevant subjects in LEADTOOLS Support Forums.
For many demo executables, LEADTOOLS also includes tutorials that walk through the demo features and provide guidelines for programming variants and options.
Getting Started video tutorials (with full audio voice-over) that walk through key coding tasks are hosted on the LEADTOOLS YouTube video channel.
Tutorial programs are straightforward, stepwise models that show useful solutions to practical problems. You can use these as a starting point, cut and paste code, or simply review them for highlights on how to write code for a specific feature or problem.
LEADTOOLS Developer Support Forums are clearly organized, support-moderated (so that all queries include solutions), and provide code tips, and solution samples along with FAQs and troubleshooting advice. Each page includes an RSS (RSS 2.0) web feed button, enabling you to subscribe to your favorite forums and stay on top of emerging issues.
