bind

Create a Dynamsoft Viewer instance and bind it to the WebTwain instance.

Syntax

bind(element: HTMLDivElement | HTMLElement) : boolean;

Parameters

element: Specify an HTML element to create the viewer.

Example

var DWObject;
Dynamsoft.DWT.CreateDWTObjectEx(
    {
        WebTwainId: "dwtControl"
    },
    function (obj) {
        DWObject = obj;
        DWObject.Viewer.bind("dwtcontrolContainer");
        DWObject.Viewer.width=600;
        DWObject.Viewer.height=800;
        DWObject.Viewer.show();    
    }, 
    function (err) {
        console.log(err);
    });

Availability

ActiveX H5(Windows) H5(macOS/TWAIN) H5(macOS/ICA) H5(Linux)
not supported v17.2+ v17.2+ v17.2+ v17.2+

Usage notes

Replace the previous BindViewer method.


clearSelectedAreas

Clear the selected area(s) on the current page.

Syntax

clearSelectedAreas(): boolean;

Availability

ActiveX H5(Windows) H5(macOS/TWAIN) H5(macOS/ICA) H5(Linux)
not supported v16.2+ v16.2+ v16.2+ v16.2+

Example

DWObject.Viewer.clearSelectedAreas();

createCustomElement

Add a custom page DIV element and specify its position and display order. Generate an independent CustomElement object.

Syntax

createCustomElement(
    element: HTMLDivElement,
    location?: string,
    ifFull?: boolean
): CustomElement;

Parameters

element: Specify the HTMLDivElement.

location: Define where to place the custom element. The allowed values are “left” and “right”, and the default value is “right”.

ifFull: The default value is false, that is, the created CustomElement is displayed according to the set area. If set to true, the main viewer will be covered by the CustomElement.

Arguments

CustomElement: Please refer to CustomElement.

Availability

ActiveX H5(Windows) H5(macOS/TWAIN) H5(macOS/ICA) H5(Linux)
not supported v16.2+ v16.2+ v16.2+ v16.2+

Example

var myElement = document.createElement("div");
myElement.style = "width:100px;height:200px;background:red";
var customElement = DWObject.Viewer.createCustomElement(
  myElement,
  "right",
  false
);
customElement.show();

Usage notes

Only one CustomElement object can be created. If you try creating another one, you’ll get the error ‘A CustomElement already exists.’, and the existing CustomElement object will be returned.

If the width defined by the CustomElement object exceeds the width of the main viewer, the width of the main viewer is used.

The method unbind() will dispose all created CustomElement objects.
