GDI+: GdipGetAllPropertyItems
« on: June 23, 2008, 02:36:56 AM »

Some image files contain metadata that you can read to determine features of the image. For example, a digital photograph might contain metadata that you can read to determine the make and model of the camera used to capture the image.

GDI+ stores an individual piece of metadata in a PropertyItem structure. The GdipGetAllPropertyItems method returns an array of PropertyItem structures. Before you call GdipGetAllPropertyItems, you must allocate a buffer large enough to receive that array. You can call the GdipGetPropertySize function to get the size, in bytes, of the required buffer. The GdipGetPropertySize function also gives you the number of properties (pieces of metadata) in the image.

The following example creates an Image object based on a JPEG file. The code calls the GdipGetAllPropertyItems function to obtain its property items (metadata).

C++

Code: [Select]
#include <windows.h>
#include <gdiplus.h>
#include <stdio.h>
using namespace Gdiplus;

INT main()
{
   GdiplusStartupInput gdiplusStartupInput;
   ULONG_PTR gdiplusToken;
   GdiplusStartup(&gdiplusToken, &gdiplusStartupInput, NULL);

   // Create an Image object based on a JPEG file.
   Image* image = new Image(L"FakePhoto.jpg");

   // Find out how many property items are in the image, and find out the
   // required size of the buffer that will receive those property items.
   UINT totalBufferSize;
   UINT numProperties;
   image->GetPropertySize(&totalBufferSize, &numProperties);

   // Allocate the buffer that will receive the property items.
   PropertyItem* pAllItems = (PropertyItem*)malloc(totalBufferSize);

   // Fill the buffer.
   image->GetAllPropertyItems(totalBufferSize, numProperties, pAllItems);

// Print the id data member of each property item.
   for(UINT j = 0; j < numProperties; ++j)
   {
      printf("%x\n", pAllItems[j].id);
   }

   free(pAllItems);
   delete image;
   GdiplusShutdown(gdiplusToken);
   return 0;
}

PowerBASIC

Note: Since the PowerBASIC compilers don't allow the use of dynamic arrays as members of an structure,  the example uses an string as a buffer and later extracts portions of it and assigns them to a variable dimensioned as a PropertyItem structure.

Code: [Select]
#COMPILE EXE
#DIM ALL
#INCLUDE "GDIPLUS.INC"
