L_GetIgnoreFilters

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTFIL_API L_SSIZE_T L_GetIgnoreFilters(pszFilters, uSize);

Retrieves the current ignored filters list that LEADTOOLS should never load, even if present.

Parameters

L_TCHAR * pszFilters

Pointer to a character string to be updated with the current ignored filters list.

L_SIZE_T uSize

The size in bytes of the buffer pointed to by pszFilters.

Returns

Value Meaning
>=0 The size in bytes of the ignored filters list.

Comments

In case the current ignored filters list should be changed, call this function before calling the L_IgnoreFilters function.

To retrieve the ignored filters list, the user should do the following:

  1. Call the function passing pszFilters as NULL and uSize as 0 to retrieve the size required for the filters list as returned value.
  2. Allocate a buffer of size returned value.
  3. Call the function passing the allocated buffer to the pszFilters and the returned value to uSize to retrieve the filters list.

Required DLLs and Libraries

Platforms

Win32, x64, Linux.
