L_AnnSaveMultiOffset

#include "l_bitmap.h"

L_LTANN_API L_INT L_AnnSaveMultiOffset(fd, nOffset, puSizeWritten, phObjects, nCount, uFormat, fSelected, pSaveOptions)

Saves an array of annotation containers at a specified position in an existing file.

Parameters

L_HFILE fd

The Windows file handle of the file to save.

L_SSIZE_T nOffset

The offset within the specified file to embed the saved annotation file. For example, if you specify 5, then 5 bytes of other data will precede the embedded file.

L_SIZE_T *puSizeWritten

Address of a variable to be updated with the size of the embedded file.

HANNOBJECT *phObjects

Pointer to an array of handles to annotation container objects. Each annotation container object can include multiple annotation objects.

L_INT nCount

The number of objects in the phObjects array

L_UINT uFormat

Format for saving annotation data. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
ANNFMT_XML [0x0005] Save as an XML text format. This is the only format supported for this call. All other values return ERROR_FEATURE_NOT_SUPPORTED.

L_BOOL fSelected

Flag that indicates which objects to save. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
TRUE Save all objects that have the selected property set to TRUE. For getting and setting the selected property, use the L_AnnGetSelected and L_AnnSetSelected functions.
FALSE Save only the specified object.

pSAVEFILEOPTION pSaveOptions

Pointer to a SAVEFILEOPTION structure that contains optional extended save options. Pass NULL because this parameter is currently ignored.

Returns

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

Comments

This function overwrites existing data at the specified location in the file. You can use this function to update an image that you loaded with the L_AnnLoadMultiOffset function. The offset is specified in bytes. You must open the file and get a Windows file handle before calling this function.

Before calling this function, you must declare a variable of data type L_UINT32. Then, pass the address of the variable in the puSizeWritten parameter. This function will update the variable with the size of the embedded file.

This function saves an entire array of annotation container objects with each page of the multipage annotation file corresponding to one of the annotation containers. If pFile already exists, it will be overwritten. If phObjects contains many annotation containers, then this function will create the multipage annotation file much faster than repeated calls to the L_AnnSave function. Note that this function only supports the ANNFMT_XML format. Passing any other format for uFormat will return an ERROR_FEATURE_NOT_SUPPORTED error.

Example

This example creates an annotation container with two objects, saves ten copies of the container in a multipage annotation file at offset 30, and then reloads the ten containers from the file.
