TImageEnIO.LoadFromFileAuto

TImageEnIO.LoadFromFileAuto


Declaration

function LoadFromFileAuto(const FileName: WideString): Boolean; dynamic;


Description

Loads an image from file. Unlike LoadFromFile it ignores the file extension, instead it analyzes the file content to determine its format. Result will be false if the file is not a recognized file type (and Aborting will be true). Loading errors due to a file not being available will raise an exception.

Notes:
- You can abort loading by setting Aborting to true
- This method can load IEV (TImageEnVect objects) and IEN+IEV formats when AttachedImageEn is TImageEnView or TImageEnVect.


Example

ImageEnView1.IO.LoadFromFileAuto('C:\input.dat');

ImageEnView1.IO.LoadFromFileAuto('C:\input.tif'); // a tiff or a RAW?

if ImageEnView1.IO.LoadFromFileAuto(sFilename) = False then
  ShowMessage('Not a supported file type!');
