GDI+: GdipSetPropertyItem
« on: June 23, 2008, 04:05:30 AM »

The following console application creates a Image object based on a JPEG file. The code calls the GdipSetPropertyItem function of that Image object to set the title of the image. Then the code retrieves and displays the new title.

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");

   // Set the image title.
   PropertyItem* propItem = new PropertyItem;
   CHAR newTitleValue[] = "Fake Photograph 2";

   propItem->id = PropertyTagImageTitle;
   propItem->length = 18;  //  includes null terminator
   propItem->type = PropertyTagTypeASCII;
   propItem->value = newTitleValue;

   image->SetPropertyItem(propItem);

   // Get and display the new image title.
   UINT size = image->GetPropertyItemSize(PropertyTagImageTitle);
   PropertyItem* title = (PropertyItem*)malloc(size);
   image->GetPropertyItem(PropertyTagImageTitle, size, title);
   printf("The image title is %s.\n", title->value);

   free(title);
   delete propItem;
   delete image;
   GdiplusShutdown(gdiplusToken);
   return 0;
}

PowerBASIC

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

Josť,

This MSDN code won't work with the BERRY_Halle.jpg file provided in the zip file.

This will report the GDIPLUS error 19 (GpStatusPropertyNotFound) trying to read the PropertyTagImageTitle from the resulting  "BERRY_Halle_Modified.jpg" file.

Rather use the PropertyTagImageDescription
See the details here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms534416(v=VS.85).aspx#_gdiplus_constant_propertytagimagedescription

To fix the code, change all occurences of PropertyTagImageTitle into PropertyTagImageDescription, and see the result within the Windows Explorer:
Right click on the "BERRY_Halle_Modified.jpg" file name,
then select properties,
the select the "Details" tab.

On Windows Seven, you should see in the Description section:
Title      Halle Berry
Object   Halle Berry
