L_LTFIL_API L_INT L_GetPCDResolution(pszFile, pPCDInfo)

Examines a PhotoCD file to determine which resolutions it contains.


L_TCHAR* pszFile

Character string containing the name of the PhotoCD file.


Pointer to the LEAD PCDINFO structure.


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


Before calling this function, declare a variable for a PCDINFO structure. Then, after calling this function, look at the values in the structure to see which resolutions are available.

The PCDINFO structure is specified as follows in the LTFIL.H file:

typedef struct pcdinfo 
   L_INT     resolution[6]; 

The structure contains an array of integers, and the value of each integer can be 0 or 1. The following symbolic constants are defined for use as indexes into the array:

Constant Used as Index Meaning
L_PCD_BASE_OVER_64 [0] Resolution 64 x 96
L_PCD_BASE_OVER_16 [1] Resolution 128 x 192
L_PCD_BASE_OVER_4 [2] Resolution 256 x 384
L_PCD_BASE [3] Resolution 512 x 768
L_PCD_4BASE [4] Resolution 1024 x 1536
L_PCD_16BASE [5] Resolution 2048 x 3072

Note: More options are available in the LOADFILEOPTION structure.
