EdgeDetectorCommand Class

Applies the specified edge filter to an image. This command is available in the Document/Medical Toolkits.
public class EdgeDetectorCommand : RasterCommand 
Public Class EdgeDetectorCommand  
   Inherits RasterCommand 
@interface LTEdgeDetectorCommand : LTRasterCommand 
public class EdgeDetectorCommand extends RasterCommand 
public ref class EdgeDetectorCommand : public RasterCommand   
  • Filters such as Sobel filter, Prewitt filter, Laplacian filter, and Gradient filter are used to determine the pixels belonging to edges in the image.
  • The threshold range for the 16, 48, and 64-bit images is from 0 to 65535 and for 12-bit images from 0 to 4095. Otherwise, it is from 0 to 255. The threshold is applied on channels separately.
  • This command supports 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images. Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images is available only in the Document/Medical toolkits.
  • This command does not support 32-bit grayscale images.
  • This command supports signed/unsigned data images.
