Comments

Gets the current value of an enum setting as string.

This method returns the value as string, if the enum is not a flag enum type (the value of L_OcrSettingDescriptor.EnumIsFlags of the L_OcrSettingDescriptor for this setting is false), then the string value of the enum setting is returned (The enum member friendly names can be obtained with L_OcrSettingDescriptor.EnumMemberFriendlyNames).

If the enum is a flag enum type (the value of L_OcrSettingDescriptor.EnumIsFlags of the L_OcrSettingDescriptor for this setting is true), then the string value of the setting is the friendly names of the flagged set separated by a comma.

The string enum values are case-sensitive.

To get or set the value of an enum setting as unsigned integer, use L_OcrSettingManager_GetEnumValue and L_OcrSettingManager_SetEnumValue.

The settingName setting must be an "enum" type setting, otherwise; this method will return an error. To get the type of a setting along with other information such as its friendly name and range use the L_OcrSettingManager_GetSettingDescriptor method.

To set the value of an enum setting, use L_OcrSettingManager_SetEnumValue.

You can also set the value of any setting from a string (where the string will be converted to a compatible type) using L_OcrSettingManager_SetValue. To get the value of any setting as a string, use L_OcrSettingManager_GetValue. Note that settings of type L_OcrSettingValueType_BeginCategory and L_OcrSettingValueType_EndCategory have no values and will return an error if you try to get or set their values.

LEADTOOLS OCR Module - LEAD Engine contain specific additional features and functionality that can be queried and updated using different L_OcrSettingManager handle functions.

You can use the different methods of the L_OcrSettingManager handle to get and set the engine-specific settings. Each setting has a unique name (a string value). You can get all the settings available to the current OCR engine through the L_OcrSettingManager_GetSettingName method. The L_OcrSettingManager_GetSettingDescriptor and L_OcrSettingManager_GetSettingDescriptors methods returns a description of the setting (its type, friendly name and value range), you can then use the various setting get and set methods to query and change the value of a certain setting. For example, if the setting type is L_OcrSettingValueType_Integer, you can use the L_OcrSettingManager_GetIntegerValue to get the current value of the setting and the L_OcrSettingManager_SetIntegerValue to change its value. Refer to L_OcrEngine_GetSettingManager for a complete example.

Note: You have to call L_OcrMemory_Free after you are done with this buffer to free the allocated memory.
