GetInformationAsyncCompleted Event

Indicates that an asynchronous get information operation has been completed.
public event EventHandler<CodecsGetInformationAsyncCompletedEventArgs> GetInformationAsyncCompleted 
synchronized public void addGetInformationAsyncCompletedListener(CodecsGetInformationAsyncCompletedListener listener) 
synchronized public void removeGetInformationAsyncCompletedListener(CodecsGetInformationAsyncCompletedListener listener) 
event EventHandler<CodecsGetInformationAsyncCompletedEventArgs^>^ GetInformationAsyncCompleted 
def GetInformationAsyncCompleted(sender,e): # sender: RasterCodecs e: CodecsGetInformationAsyncCompletedEventArgs 
Event Data

The event handler receives an argument of type CodecsGetInformationAsyncCompletedEventArgs containing data related to this event. The following CodecsGetInformationAsyncCompletedEventArgs properties provide information specific to this event.

Cancelled (Inherited from System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs)Gets a value indicating whether an asynchronous operation has been canceled.
Error (Inherited from System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs)Gets a value indicating which error occurred during an asynchronous operation.
FileName (Inherited from Leadtools.Codecs.CodecsAsyncCompletedEventArgs)Gets the file name this asynchronous operation is using.
Info Gets the CodecsImageInfo class instance that contains the information about the image file.
Stream (Inherited from Leadtools.Codecs.CodecsAsyncCompletedEventArgs)Gets the stream this asynchronous operation is using.
Uri (Inherited from Leadtools.Codecs.CodecsAsyncCompletedEventArgs)Gets the URI this asynchronous operation is using.
UserState (Inherited from System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs)Gets the unique identifier for the asynchronous task.

NOTE: This topic is part of RasterCodecs Async support using the .NET System.ComponentMode.AsyncOperation model. For .NET async/await support this type/member is not used. Instead, refer to RasterCodecs Async Operations.

The RasterCodecs class supports getting information on image files asynchronously using the GetInformationAsync methods. When calling any of these methods, the caller thread will not be blocked and the method will return instantly with an instance CodecsImageInfo that is in a loading status (CodecsImageInfo.IsLoading set to true). You should not use the other properties of this object while the object is in loading status.

When the RasterCodecs object finishes getting the information about the file, the various properties of the CodecsImageInfo will be populated with the image file information and the CodecsImageInfo.IsLoading property will be set to false.

It is recommended that you do not poll for the CodecsImageInfo.IsLoading property to determine whether the image information has been collected. Instead, subscribe to the GetInformationAsyncCompleted event to get notification on when the GetInformationAsync operation is completed and whether any errors occurred.

The GetInformationAsyncCompleted event data will also contain the same object returned from GetInformationAsync so you do not have to keep the original object in your application.

The GetInformationAsyncCompleted event uses a data argument object of type CodecsGetInformationAsyncCompletedEventArgs. This class contains the following properties:

Property Description
CodecsGetInformationAsyncCompletedEventArgs.Uri, CodecsGetInformationAsyncCompletedEventArgs.Stream and CodecsGetInformationAsyncCompletedEventArgs.FileName

Contains the URI, stream or file name passed to the method that initialized this asynchronous operation.

Only one of these properties can be a valid value (not a null reference) at any time The property that contains a valid reference depends on what version of GetInformationAsync method has been called.

For example, if GetInformationAsync(Uri uri, bool totalPages, int pageNumberobject, object userState) is being called, the Uri will contain the same URI passed to the method while Stream and FileName will both be null. If GetInformationAsync(string fileName, bool totalPages, int pageNumberobject, object userState) is being called, the FileName will contain the same file name string value passed to the method while Uri and Stream will both be null and so on.


Contains the CodecsImageInfo class instance that contains the information about the image file. This instance is the same object returned from the GetInformationAsync method. While the asynchronous operation is running, the value of the CodecsImageInfo.IsLoading will be true indicating that the object is being populated with the information and should not be used. When the asynchronous operation completes, the GetInformationAsyncCompleted event will fire and Info will contain the final and ready to use object. If an error occurs, this property will be set to null and the object is disposed internally by the toolkit.


Contains any errors that might have occurred during the asynchronous operation. You must check this value when the GetInformationAsyncCompleted event fires and make sure it does not contain a valid Exception object.


Contains a value indicating whether an asynchronous operation has been canceled. For example, by calling CancelAsync when using RasterCodecs.GetInformationAsync with a URL.
