L_SSIZE_T pEXT_CALLBACK YourSeek (nFd, nPos, nOrigin, pUserData)

Replaces the normal LEADTOOLS function for repositioning a file pointer.



Identifies the file, using the file handle returned by the REDIRECTOPEN callback function.


Specifies the number of bytes the pointer is to be moved.

L_INT nOrigin

Specifies the starting position and direction of the pointer. This parameter must be one of the following values:

Value Meaning
0 Move the file pointer nPos bytes from the beginning of the file.
1 Move the file pointer nPos bytes from its current position.
2 Move the file pointer nPos bytes from the end of the file.

L_VOID* pUserData

A void pointer that you can use to access a variable or structure containing data that your callback function needs. This gives you a way to receive data indirectly from the function that uses this callback function. (This is the same pointer that you pass in the pUserData parameter of the calling function.)

Keep in mind that this is a void pointer, which must be cast to the appropriate data type within your callback function.


Value Meaning
>0 The number of bytes that the function wrote to the file.
-1 The function failed.


For information about using this type of callback, refer to L_RedirectIO.

Required DLLs and Libraries


For how the following function is defined and called, refer to L_RedirectIO.
This procedure is a replacement to the built-in seek procedure.
This emulates the whole seek operation on a memory block, and adjusts the internal data structures accordingly.
