L_DispContainerCalibrateRuler

#include "ltivw.h"

L_LTIVW_API L_INT L_DispContainerCalibrateRuler(hCellWnd, nSubCellIndex, dLength, uUnit, uFlags)

Calibrates the selected ruler inside the specific cell or sub-cell.

Parameters

L_HWND hCellWnd

A handle to the window that represents the cell on which the function's effect will be applied.

L_INT nSubCellIndex

A zero-based index into the image list attached to the cell specified in nCellIndex. This image contains the ruler annotation object that the user chooses to calibrate. Pass -1 to apply this effect on all sub-cells. Pass -2 to apply this effect on the selected sub-cell.

L_DOUBLE dLength

Value that represents the length to be assigned to the ruler. The measurement unit of the length is specified by the value of uUnit parameter.

L_UINT uUnit

Value that specifies the measurement unit of the length. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
CONTAINER_RULERUNIT_INCHES [0] Inches.
CONTAINER_RULERUNIT_FEET [1] Feet.
CONTAINER_RULERUNIT_MICROMETERS [2] Micrometers.
CONTAINER_RULERUNIT_MILLIMETERS [3] Millimeters.
CONTAINER_RULERUNIT_CENTIMETERS [4] Centimeters.
CONTAINER_RULERUNIT_METERS [5] Meters.

L_UINT uFlags

Flags that indicate the direction to which the calibration is applied. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
CONTAINER_CALIBRATERULER_BOTH [0] Calibrate both axes.
CONTAINER_CALIBRATERULER_VERTICAL [1] Calibrate vertical axis only.
CONTAINER_CALIBRATERULER_HORIZONTAL [2] Calibrate horizontal axis only.

Returns

Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

This function works only on the ruler annotation. To calibrate one or both axes, set the uFlags parameter. To calibrate the cell without having to use a ruler, use the L_DispContainerCalibrateCell function.

To calibrate the ruler it must be selected before calling the function; otherwise, the function will return ERROR_INV_PARAMETER.

If the measurement unit of the selected ruler differs than the measurement unit of the viewer, the value to the uUnit parameter will be ignored and the measurement unit of the viewer will be used instead. (For example: if the user calibrates the ruler to 1 inch, and the viewer measurement unit was centimeter, the ruler length will be 2.54 centimeter).

To obtain the measurement unit of the viewer, call the L_DispContainerGetRulerUnit function.

To change the measurement unit of the viewer, call the L_DispContainerSetRulerUnit function.

Example

Calibrate the ruler using the Cm.

L_INT DispContainerCalibrateRulerExample(HDISPCONTAINER hCon, L_DOUBLE dValue) 
{ 
   L_UINT uUnit; 
 
   if (L_DispContainerGetCellCount(hCon, 0) == 0) 
   { 
      MessageBox(NULL, TEXT("you must at least have one cell added to the viewer"), TEXT("No Cell attached"), MB_OK); 
      return FAILURE; 
   } 
 
   HWND hCellWnd = L_DispContainerGetCellWindowHandle(hCon, 0, 0); 
 
   L_DispContainerGetRulerUnit(hCellWnd, &uUnit, 0); 
 
   if (uUnit != CONTAINER_RULERUNIT_CENTIMETERS) 
      L_DispContainerSetRulerUnit(hCellWnd, CONTAINER_RULERUNIT_CENTIMETERS, 0); 
 
   L_DispContainerCalibrateRuler(hCellWnd, 0, dValue, CONTAINER_RULERUNIT_CENTIMETERS, 0); 
   return SUCCESS; 
}
