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 of multi-page image and assign it with external file */
nErrCount = IG_mpi_page_count_get( hMIGear, &nPageCount );
/* delete all pages and shrink array to entries pages */
nErrCount = IG_mpi_page_delete( hMIGear, 0, nPageCount );


If the deleted pages are valid images, they are deleted with the function IG_image_delete(). Pages with higher indexes are shifted by removing the number and number of pages is decreased so that all pages are numbered from 0 to nPageCount-1.

For multi-page vector documents, this function DELETES a page in the underneath vector document data. The following formats are currently supported by this API: PDF, PostScript.
