InsertPage(int,string,OcrProgressCallback) Method

Inserts the image stored in a disk file to the specified location.
public IOcrPage InsertPage( 
   int pageIndex, 
   string fileName, 
   OcrProgressCallback callback 
- (nullable LTOcrPage *)insertPageAtIndex:(NSUInteger)pageIndex 
                                     file:(NSString *)fileName 
                                    error:(NSError **)error 
def InsertPage(self,pageIndex,fileName,callback): 


The zero-based index at which  fileName should be inserted.

The name of the file containing the image.

Optional callback to show operation progress.

Return Value

The IOcrPage object that define the newly inserted page.


This method will load the first page from a raster image file on disk and inserts it to the OCR document at the specified location.

To insert all or specific range of the pages of a multipage image file to the OCR document, use the InsertPages(int pageIndex, string fileName, int imageFirstPageNumber, int imageLastPageNumber, OcrProgressCallback callback) method.

If you passed a RasterCodecs object to the IOcrEngine.Startup, then this method will use the same RasterCodecs object to load the raster image file. If you did not pass a RasterCodecs object, the engine will create an instance the first time one of the add or export page methods is called.

The image file in  fileName can be any of the file formats supported by LEADTOOLS. For more information, refer to Summary of All Supported Image File Formats.

You can use the OcrProgressCallback to show the operation progress or to abort it. For more information and an example, refer to OcrProgressCallback.

The LEADTOOLS OCR engine supports pages of dots per inch (DPI) values of 150 and greater. If you try to add a page with a DPI of less than 150 then the engine might be able to recognize any data from this page.

Note: The value of the "Recognition.ShareOriginalImage" (only supported by the LEADTOOLS OCR Module - LEAD Engine) setting is not used when calling this method. The engine loads the image(s) and sets them in the pages internally. The original image reference can be obtained from the page using IOcrPage.GetRasterImage(OcrPageType.Original). Sharing the original image minimizes the memory used during OCR operations.

This member only works with memory-based documents and will throw an exception otherwise. For more information, refer to IOcrDocumentManager.CreateDocument and Programming with the LEADTOOLS .NET OCR.


This example will load then insert in reverse order a group of image files from disk.
