Initialize runtime settings with the settings in a given JSON file.

int dynamsoft::dbr::CBarcodeReader::InitRuntimeSettingsWithFile (const char* pFilePath, const ConflictMode conflictMode, char errorMsgBuffer[] = NULL, int errorMsgBufferLen = 0)	

Parameters

[in] pFilePath The path of the settings file.
[in] conflictMode The parameter setting mode, which decides whether to inherit parameters from previous template setting or to overwrite previous settings and replace with the new template.
[in,out] errorMsgBufferOptional The buffer is allocated by caller and the recommended length is 256. The error message will be copied to the buffer.
