virtual L_INT LWia::GetRootItem(pItem, ppWiaRootItem)

Gets the root item for the passed pItem parameter.


L_VOID * pItem

Valid pointer to a type IWiaItem or IWiaItem2 object (IWiaItem if using WIA Version 1.0; IWiaItem2 if using WIA Version 2.0), representing an item's root item.

If this parameter is NULL, the ppWiaRootItem parameter will be filled with pointer to the device's root item.

L_VOID ** ppWiaRootItem

Address of the pointer to IWiaItem or IWiaItem2 interface variable to be updated with the root item for the item passed through the pItem parameter.


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


This feature is available in LEADTOOLS version 16 or higher.

Gets the root item for the item passed through the pItem parameter.

If pItem is NULL, the ppWiaRootItem parameter is updated with a pointer to the device's root item (representing the device itself).

This is the first function you need to call to get a pointer to the device's root item. Then pass that pointer to the LWia::EnumChildItems function to enumerate all of the device's child items. Then call this function again for any child item of the enumerated items to retrieve its root item if needed.
