#include "ltwrappr.h"

static L_INT LFileSettings::SetPDFOptions(pOptions)

Sets the file options used by LEADTOOLS when loading PDF, PS or EPS files.


const pFILEPDFOPTIONS pOptions

Pointer to a structure that contains the options to use when loading PDF, PS or EPS files.


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


The nSize member of the FILEPDFOPTIONS structure must be set before calling this function. If a PDF, PS or EPS file is loaded without first calling this function, the following default values will be used:

FILEPDFOPTIONS Member Default value
bUseLibFonts TRUE
nDisplayDepth 24
nTextAlpha 4
nGraphicsAlpha 1

The values set by this function are valid for the current thread. To change the values used by the current thread, this function must be called again.

Both font and graphics anti-aliasing slow down the drawing of the resulting bitmap.

Font and graphics anti-aliasing can only be used if nDisplayDepth is 8 or greater.

For a list of functions that utilize the LOADFILEOPTION or SAVEFILEOPTION structures, refer to Functions Utilizing the LOADFILEOPTION or SAVEFILEOPTION structures.

Required DLLs and Libraries


Win32, x64.
