Examines a FlashPix, PhotoCD, ECW, or JBIG file to determine which resolutions it contains.


#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LFile::ReadLoadResolutions(pDimensions, pDimensionCount, pLoadFileOption=NULL)


pDIMENSION pDimensions

Pointer to the array of DIMENSION structures to be updated with the available physical resolutions in the file. You can pass NULL if you only want to update the count variable.

L_INT * pDimensionCount

Address of the pDimensionCount variable to be updated with the number of available resolutions.


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


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


A FlashPix, PhotoCD, ECW, or JBIG file can may contain more than one copy of the same image, each at a different physical resolution (width and height in pixels). For PhotoCD files, the resolutions are fixed sizes, and you can use an older function (LFile::GetPCDResolution) to examine them. For FlashPix and JBIG files, which can contain images of various sizes, you must use this function to examine them. For ECW files you can only resample images to dimensions smaller than the original values for width/height, you can use this function to get the original dimensions.

You must allocate the array to be updated. One way to do this is to declare an array of the maximum size (29 elements). Another way is to call this function twice the first time with NULL in the pDimensions parameter, so that you can get the number of elements and allocate storage of the appropriate size.

After you get the available resolutions, you can use the LFileSettings::SetLoadResolution function to specify the one to be loaded.

Before you can call this function, you must set the filename for the class object.
