L_LTSGM_API L_INT L_MrcSetSegmentData(hSegment, pBitmap, nSegId, pSegmentData)

Updates the specified segment.



An existing segmentation handle. This handle is obtained by calling the L_MrcStartBitmapSegmentation function.


Pointer to the bitmap handle that references the bitmap to be segmented.

L_INT nSegId

ID of the segment to be updated.


Pointer to the SEGMENTDATA structure that contains the new segment information.


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


Use this function to update the segment information. In the automatic segmentation mode, the LEADTOOLS engine will update the segments using the new segment data passed to this function. This process may create or delete segments. The function will update the segments so they remain within the bitmap width and height.

In the manual segmentation mode, the user is free to update the segments. The LEADTOOLS engine will not delete or create segments. If an error occurs, the pSegmentData parameter will be updated with the target segment.

To get segment IDs and segment information, use the L_MrcEnumSegments function to enumerate all segments.

The function will return an error if the updated segment exceeds its image boundaries.

Call the L_MrcStartBitmapSegmentation function before using any of the segmentation functions. When the handle to the segmentation is no longer needed, free it by calling the L_MrcStopBitmapSegmentation function.
