ImageGear for C and C++ on Linux v20.0 - Updated
API Reference Guide > Core Component API Reference > Core Component Functions Reference > Multi Page Image File Functions > IG_mpf_page_load

If a multi-page image is associated with an external file, it loads and stores the specified number of pages from the external file into a multi-page image.


Copy Code
AT_ERRCOUNT IG_mpf_page_load( 
        [IN] HMIGEAR hMIGear, 
        [IN] UINT nStartPage, 
        [IN] UINT nCount


Name Type Description
hMIGear HMIGEAR The handle of the allocated multi-page image.
nStartPage UINT The first page to be loaded.
nCount UINT The total number of pages to be loaded.

Return Value:

Returns the number of ImageGear errors that occurred during this function call. If there are no errors, the return value is IGE_SUCCESS.

Supported Raster Image Formats:

All pixel formats supported by ImageGear for C and C++.


Copy Code
HMIGEAR hMIGear;     /* handle to multi-page image */
AT_ERRCOUNT nErrCount = IGE_SUCCESS; /* will hold returned error count */
UINT nPageCount = 0; /* number of pages that should get from multi-page image */
HIGEAR hIGear;     /* handle of an image */
/* initialize multi-page image and assign it with external file */
nErrCount = IG_mpf_page_count_get( hMIGear, &nPageCount );
for ( i = 0; i < nPageCount; i++ )
        if (!nErrCount)
        if ( !IG_mpi_page_is_valid(hMIGear, i) && (!nErrCount) )
        nErrCount = IG_mpf_page_load( hMIGear, i, 1 );  


To access the loaded pages, use the IG_mpi_page_get() function.

If the multi-page image is not associated with an external file, or a failure to load a page occurs, then an error is set. This function loads each Nth page from a file into the correspondent Nth page into the multi-page image. Previous page values are not deleted with function IG_image_delete(). If necessary, the number of pages is expanded to fit all loaded pages.
