Retrieves an array of information for all filters.


#include "ltwrappr.h"

static L_INT LBaseFile::GetFilterListInfo(ppFilterList, pFilterCount)


pFILTERINFO * ppFilterList

Pointer to a pointer to a FILTERINFO structure that represents an array of information for all filters. The address of this structure will be stored into *ppFilterList. This parameter cannot be NULL.

L_UINT * pFilterCount

Pointer to a variable to be updated with the number of elements of ppFilterList array.


Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


The function will allocate a FILTERINFO structure large enough to contain the information of all filters.

When the array ppFilterList is no longer needed, the user is responsible to free this structure by calling the LBaseFile::FreeFilterInfo(*ppFilterList, *pFilterCount, FILTERINFO_FREEALL) function.

To obtain the information for a specific filter, call the LBaseFile::GetFilterInfo function.

To update the information of a specific filter, call LBaseFile::SetFilterInfo function.

To update the filter extension list, be sure to save and restore the original filter list before calling LBaseFile::FreeFilterInfo function.
