Parameters

fileName
The source RTF file.

pageNumber
The 1-based page number to load.

Return Value

The Windows Enhanced Metafile this method creates.

Remarks

This method uses the following members of the current CodecsRasterizeDocumentLoadOptions set in RasterCodecs.Options.RasterizeDocument.Load to determine the page size, resolution and margins:

Also, it uses the following members of the current CodecsRtfLoadOptions set in RasterCodecs.Options.Rtf.Load to determine the back color to use:

So you must set these options according to your application needs before calling this method. The number of pages inside the RTF file will depend on the Rasterize Document options.

You must destroy the Windows Enhanced Metafile (EMF) handle this method creates manually using the DeleteEnhMetaFile Windows API.

public void LoadRtfAsMetafileExample() 
{ 
	RasterCodecs codecs = new RasterCodecs(); 
 
	string srcFileName = Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir, "Image1.rtf"); 
 
	// Load the source file as a metafile 
	IntPtr hemf = codecs.Options.Rtf.LoadMetafile(srcFileName, 1); 
 
	if (hemf != IntPtr.Zero) 
	{ 
		// Use the metafile here 
 
		// Finally, delete it using the Windows API 
		DeleteEnhMetaFile(hemf); 
	} 
 
	// Clean up 
	codecs.Dispose(); 
}
