IndexToImageID

Return the imageId of an image specified by the index.

Syntax

IndexToImageID(index: number): number;

Parameters

index: The index of the image.

ImageIDToIndex

Return the index of an image specified by the imageId.

Syntax

v5.2+ v5.2+ v5.2+ v5.2+ v5.2+

Usage notes

[0, 100] is the interval of allowed values, inclusive. 0 gives a single-color image. The default value is 1.

This property is only valid before IsBlankImageExpress is called.

ActiveX H5(Windows) H5(macOS/TWAIN) H5(macOS/ICA) H5(Linux)
v10.1+ v10.1+ v10.1+ v11.0+ v12.1+

Usage notes

Set this property only when you have a very small physical memory (< 2GB) or a very big one (>4GB). The more memory is allowed, the better the performance will be. The default value is set to 800 (MB), anything beyond 800MB gets compressed, encrypted and cached on the local disk.

All cached data is encrypted and can only be read by Dynamic Web TWAIN and it will be destroyed when it is no longer used.


IsBlankImage

Check whether the specified image is blank.

Syntax

IsBlankImage(index: number): boolean;

Parameters

index: Specify the image.

v5.2+ v5.2+ v5.2+ v5.2+ v5.2+

IsBlankImageAsync

Check whether the specified image is blank.

Syntax

IsBlankImageAsync(index: number, 
  {options?: {
    minBlockHeight?: number,
    maxBlockHeight?: number,
    }
  }
): Promise < boolean > ;

Parameters

index: Specify the image in buffer to be analyzed.

minBlockHeight: Minimum height of mark to be detected.

maxBlockHeight: Maximum height of mark to be detected.

Availability

ActiveX H5(Windows) H5(macOS/TWAIN) H5(macOS/ICA) H5(Linux) Android
N/A v18.4+ N/A N/A N/A N/A

Usage Notes This API uses a different algorithm than the one used in IsBlankImage and IsBlankImageExpress, which allows you to judge a page as not blank if it has marks within a defined size. If the mark on the page satisfies the comparison parameters, then the page will be deemed not blank.

Example: The mark on the page is 11 pixels tall, minBlockHeight is set to 9 pixels and maxBlockHeight is set to 13 pixels, the page will be marked as not blank.


IsBlankImageExpress

Check whether the specified image is blank.

Syntax

IsBlankImageExpress(index: number): boolean;

Parameters

index: Specify the image.

Availability

ActiveX H5(Windows) H5(macOS/TWAIN) H5(macOS/ICA) H5(Linux)
v10.0+ v10.0+ v10.0+ v10.0+ v10.0+

Usage notes

IsBlankImage is more accurate than IsBlankImageExpress but it works slower.

BlankImageCurrentStdDev should be read after either IsBlankImage() or IsBlankImageExpress.

If you believe an image should be blank but IsBlankImage() or IsBlankImageExpress is returning false, you can read BlankImageCurrentStdDev for that image and then set a bigger value to BlankImageMaxStdDev.

Both BlankImageCurrentStdDev and BlankImageMaxStdDev range from 0 to 100.

If the image is not blank and it is not black and white, IsBlankImage() or IsBlankImageExpress may return true. In that case, you can increase the BlankImageThreshold value so that the image is not detected as blank.


IfAllowLocalCache

Return or set whether the feature of disk caching is enabled.

Syntax

IfAllowLocalCache: boolean;

Availability

ActiveX H5(Windows) H5(macOS/TWAIN) H5(macOS/ICA) H5(Linux)
v10.0+ v10.0+ v10.0+ v11.0+ v12.1+

Usage notes

The default value of IfAllowLocalCache is true. When the property is true, you can scan as many images as you want as long as you have a big enough disk.
The default threshold is set to 800 (MB), anything beyond 800MB gets compressed, encrypted and cached on the local disk.
If necessary, you can set the threshold using BufferMemoryLimit for better performance.
All cached data is encrypted and can only be read by Dynamic Web TWAIN and it will be destroyed when it is no longer used.


OnBufferChanged

An enhanced callback triggered when a change occurs in the buffer.

Syntax

RegisterEvent('OnBufferChanged',
    function (bufferChangeInfo: BufferChangeInfo) {}
