Considering Development Systems

The LEADTOOLS C API is designed as standard Windows Dynamic Link Libraries. You should be able to use the LEADTOOLS C API with any compiler that supports Windows DLL calls. This topic explains some of the options.

Calling functions from a C/C++ program

Most of the LEADTOOLS example programs and all of the documented code examples are for Windows programs written in C/C++. You can use LEADTOOLS as explained in Using LEADTOOLS with Your C/C++ Compiler.

Calling C API functions from Delphi:

You can call LEADTOOLS C API functions from a Borland Delphi program. An example is provided in the DELPHI subdirectory.

Most LEADTOOLS libraries provide both ANSI and UNICODE support in the same DLL. This is not the case for DICOM support. LEADTOOLS provides both UNICODE-only and ANSI-only versions of the C API DICOM DLLs. For information on the required DLL name and import library, refer to Files to be Included with your Application.
