Acquires image(s) from a TWAIN source and stores the image file(s) using Fast TWAIN feature.
L_LTTWN_API L_INT L_TwainFastAcquire(hSession, pszBaseFileName, uFlags, uTransferMode, nFormat, nBitsPerPixel, bMultiPageFile, uUserBufSize, bUsePreferredBuffer, pfnCallBack, pUserData)
Handle to an existing TWAIN session. This handle is obtained by calling the L_TwainInitSession or L_TwainInitSession2 function.
Character string containing the base name of the image file(s) in which to save the acquired data.
Flag that indicates whether to display the manufacturer's user interface. You can combine values when appropriate by using a bitwise OR ( | ). The following are valid values:
|0|| Do not show the manufacturer's user interface.|
|LTWAIN_SHOW_USER_INTERFACE||[0x0001] Show the manufacturer's user interface as modeless.|
|LTWAIN_MODAL_USER_INTERFACE||[0x0002] Show the manufacturer's user interface as a modal dialog. It is valid only if the LTWAIN_SHOW_USER_INTERFACE flag is set.|
|LTWAIN_KEEPOPEN||[0x0020] Keep the TWAIN data source open after scanning.|
Flag that indicates the transfer mode to be used when acquiring the image(s). Possible values are:
|LTWAIN_FILE_MODE||[0x001] Use the File transfer mode.|
|LTWAIN_BUFFER_MODE||[0x002] Use the Memory transfer mode.|
|LTWAIN_NATIVE_MODE||[0x004] Use the Native transfer mode.|
Output file format. Valid values depend on the transfer mode used.
Resulting file's pixel depth. Note that not all bits per pixel are available to all file formats. If nBitsPerPixel is set to 0, the file will be stored using the closest BitsPerPixel value supported by that format.
Flag that indicates whether to save multiple images into a single multipage file (if the output file format supports multipage files), or each page in a separate file. Possible values are:
|TRUE||Save in one multipage file.|
|FALSE||Save in separate files.|
Specifies a user-defined buffer size. This value is valid only if uTransferMode is LTWAIN_BUFFER_MODE and bUsePreferredBuffer is FALSE. This value must be a multiple of 16.
Flag that indicates whether to use the user-defined buffer size or the TWAIN driver preferred buffer size. Possible values are:
|TRUE||Use the TWAIN driver preferred buffer size. The value of uUserBufSize will be ignored.|
|FALSE||Use the user-defined buffer size in the uUserBufSize parameter.|
Optional callback function, called twice for each page scan. The first call is to notify the page that the scanning has started, and the second call is to notify the page that the scanning has finished.
If you do not provide a callback function, use NULL as the value of this parameter. No error reporting will occur.
If you do provide a callback function, use the function pointer as the value of this parameter. The callback function must adhere to the function prototype described in the LTWAINACQUIRECALLBACK function.
Void pointer that you can use to pass one or more additional parameters that the callback function needs. To use this feature, assign a value to a variable or create a structure that contains as many fields as you need. Then, in this parameter, pass the address of the variable or structure, casting it to
L_VOID *. The callback function, which receives the address in its own pUserData parameter, can cast it to a pointer of the appropriate data type to access your variable or structure.
|SUCCESS||The function was successful.|
|< 1||An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.|
You may call L_TwainFindFastConfig before calling this function to retrieve the best scanning configuration in the pOutBestConfig parameter, and then pass the values of the members in pOutBestConfig to this function.
If the file format specified in nFormat does not support multipage files, the value of bMultiPageFile will be ignored and the function will automatically save the acquired images in separate files. The naming of the files will be carried out as follows:
If the string in pszBaseFileName is "Temp.jpg", the method will append the number of the image (0001, 0002, etc.), to the name of the file. Therefore, the output file names will be "Temp0001.jpg", "Temp0002.jpg", etc.
Should more than 9,999 pages be acquired, numbering switches to using the actual page number. So after "Temp9999.jpg", the next page scanned would be named "Temp10000.jpg", and the following page would be "Temp10001.jpg", etc. After "Temp99999.jpg", the next page scanned would be named "Temp100000.jpg", and the following page would be "Temp100001.jpg", etc.
If nStartPageNumber is not -1 (which should be any value bigger than zero), then the numbering will start from that value. So if, for example, the nStartPageNumber contains the value 4, then the output file names will be "Temp0004.jpg", "Temp0005.jpg", etc.
If the file format supports multipage files, this function will use the bMultiPageFile parameter to determine how to save multiple images.
If bMultiPageFile is set to FALSE, each scanned page will be saved to a separate file, named in the same manner described in the paragraph above.
If bMultiPageFile is TRUE, the name of the output file will be exactly the string in pszBaseFileName "Temp.jpg" and it will be saved as a multipage file.
To cancel the acquire operation call L_TwainCancelAcquire.
To stop acquire images only from the feeder of the TWAIN source, call L_TwainStopFeeder.
The LTWAIN_KEEPOPEN flag works only in the following cases:
Passed with the LTWAIN_SHOW_USER_INTERFACE flag to make the TWAIN user-interface appear as a modeless dialog. The TWAIN data source remains open after scanning until the user closes it.
Passed with the LTWAIN_SHOW_USER_INTERFACE and LTWAIN_MODAL_USER_INTERFACE flags to make the TWAIN user-interface appear as a modal dialog. The TWAIN data source remains open after scanning until the user closes it.
For complete sample, refer to FASTTWN
L_VOID EXT_CALLBACK FastAcquireCB(HTWAINSESSION hSession,
wsprintf(szTemp, TEXT("The page # %d is scanned and saved to file name %s\n"), nPage, pszFileName);
MessageBox(NULL, szTemp, TEXT("Notice"), MB_OK);
L_INT TwainFastAcquireExample(HWND hWnd,HTWAINSESSION hSession)
nRet = L_TwainFastAcquire(hSession,
if (nRet == SUCCESS)
MessageBox(hWnd, TEXT("Fast Twain function was successful"), TEXT("Notice"), MB_OK);
MessageBox(hWnd, TEXT("Error occurred during fast Twain function!!!"), TEXT("Error!!!"), MB_OK);
