LBitmap::GWireGetMinPath

#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LBitmap::GWireGetMinPath(hGWire, ptTarget, pOutPath, nOutLength)

Constructs a minimal path from the seed point to the target point and returns a pointer to L_POINT values that represents that path.

Parameters

GWIREHANDLE hGWire

Pointer to the Gwire handle.

L_POINT ptTarget

Point structure that represent the end of minimal path.

L_POINT ** pOutPath

Pointer of a pointer to L_POINT values that represents the points along the minimal path.

L_INT* nOutLength

The length of the minimal path.

Returns

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

Comments

This function is useful for extracting objects from an image. It works by constructing a minimal path between two input points (the seed point and the target point) that follows the edges of the image's objects. The minimal paths that are returned can be used to create a region covering the object of interest.

Call LBitmap::GWireInit and LBitmap::GWireSetSeedPoint before calling this function.

Free the path generated by this function by calling the LBitmap::FreeGWirePath function.

If the image contains a region the region is ignored. The GWire algorithm works on the entire image.
