TImageEnMView.LoadFromFileOnDemand

TImageEnMView.LoadFromFileOnDemand


Declaration


procedure LoadFromFileOnDemand(const FileName: WideString; Append: Boolean = false);


Description


Fills TImageEnMView with all frames of a multiple image file (AVI, MPEG, TIFF, etc.) by filling ImageFileName with filenames and all indexes of its frames (in the format 'FileName::0', 'FileName::1', etc.).

In this way loading of individual frames will be delayed until they are required (i.e. frames are only loaded when they appear on-screen). It is mainly used for loading the frames of files with numerous frames (such as videos).

When Append is false, the existing content of the TImageEnMView is cleared.

Note: You can set TImageEnMView.MIO.Aborting := True to abort the loading of an OnDemand sequence


Example


ImageEnMView1.LoadFromFileOnDemand('C:\input.mpeg');

If input.mpeg has 1000 frames, then we will now have:
ImageEnMView1.ImageFileName[0] = 'C:\input.mpeg::0'
ImageEnMView1.ImageFileName[1] = 'C:\input.mpeg::1'
...
ImageEnMView1.ImageFileName[999] = 'C:\input.mpeg::999'
