virtual L_INT LVectorBase::AddGroup(pVectorGroup, dwFlags = VECTOR_FLAGS_RENAME_DUPLICATES)

Adds a new empty group to a vector handle.

This function is available in the LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging Pro Toolkit.


LVectorGroup *pVectorGroup

Pointer to the vector group object that specifies the group settings.

L_UINT32 dwFlags

Flag that indicates whether or not to rename duplicate group names. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
0 Don't rename duplicate group names, if found.
VECTOR_FLAGS_RENAME_DUPLICATES Renames duplicate group names if found. The toolkit will add a suffix (0, 1, 2, etc) to the group name if duplicated. Checking will be aborted when the suffix value reaches 999 and no unique name can be created.


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


To add a new vector group, do the following:

  1. Declare an LVectorGroupobject.

  2. Call LVectorGroup::GetGroupDesc to retrieve the current group settings.

  3. Change the group settings.

  4. Call LVectorGroup::SetGroupDesc to set the changed group settings.

  5. Pass the address of the LVectorGroup object to LVectorBase::AddGroup.
