L_LTANN_API L_INT L_AnnLoadMultiOffset(fd, nOffset, nLength, phObjects, nCount, pnItemsRead, pLoadOptions)

Loads annotations from a position within a file. This enables you to load an annotation file that is embedded in another file.



The Windows file handle of the file to load.

L_SSIZE_T nOffset

The position, from the beginning of the file, of the first byte to load. (The byte count starts at zero.)

L_SIZE_T nLength

The number of bytes of annotation data to read from the file. If you saved the offset using L_AnnSaveMultiOffset, the variable pointed to by puSizeWritten in that function contains the length of data saved. If you do not know the length of the data, pass 0xFFFFFFFF for this parameter.


Pointer to an array that will receive the annotation container objects.

L_INT nCount

Size of the phObjectsarray.

L_INT *pnItemsRead

Pointer to an L_INT that will receive the count of annotation containers successfully read.


Pointer to optional extended load options. Pass NULL because this parameter is currently ignored.


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


To use this function:

This function loads all pages of a multipage annotation file starting at a given offset, into an array. Each consecutive page of the multipage annotation file corresponds to one annotation container, and is loaded into consecutive slots of the array. If the annotation file contains many pages, then this method will load the multipage annotation file much faster than repeated calls to L_AnnLoad. Note that this function only loads annotation files that use the ANNFMT_XML format.
