CreateDocument() Method


Creates a new OCR memory-based document object.

public IOcrDocument CreateDocument() 
Overloads Function CreateDocument() As IOcrDocument 
public OcrDocument createDocument() 
IOcrDocument^ CreateDocument();  

Return Value

An object implementing IOcrDocument that can participate in recognition and saving operations.


This method creates a memory-based IOcrDocument. It is the equivalent of CreateDocument(null, OcrCreateDocumentOptions.InMemory). For more information on memory and file-based documents, refer to Programming with the LEADTOOLS .NET OCR.

Typical OCR operation using the IOcrEngine involves starting up and then creating an OCR document using the CreateDocument method then adding the pages into it and perform either automatic or manual zoning. Once this is done, IOcrPage.Recognize is called on each page to collect the recognition data and have it stored internally in the page. After the recognition data is collected, you use the various IOcrDocument.Save or IOcrDocument.SaveXml methods to save the document to its final format.

When you are done using the IOcrDocument object created by this method, you should dispose it as soon as possible to free its resources. Disposing an IOcrDocument object will free all the pages stored inside its IOcrDocument.Pages collection.


For an example, refer to IOcrDocumentManager.
