GetInformationAsync(RasterCodecs,ILeadStream,bool) Method


Asynchronously gets the image information from a stream containing image data.

public static Task<CodecsImageInfo> GetInformationAsync( 
   this RasterCodecs rasterCodecs, 
   ILeadStream stream, 
   bool totalPages 



RasterCodecs object to perform the operation.


Asynchronously gets the image information from a stream containing image data.


true to query the file for total number of pages; false, otherwise.

Return Value

A Task that represents the asynchronous operation. TResult: CodecsImageInfo object that contains the information about the specified image. See remarks about the usage of this object.


This topic is part of RasterCodecs support for .NET async/await support. Refer to RasterCodecs Async Operations for more information.

Specifying true for totalPages can cause the process to be slow for files with large number of pages.

The RasterCodecs class supports getting information on image files asynchronously using the GetInformationAsync methods.

For .NET Framework: A reference to the Leadtools.Async.dll assembly is required to use this functionality.

For .NET Standard: This functionality is included in the Leadtools.Codecs.dll assembly.
