OnChangeBlockType Method of the IImageViewerEvents Interface

This method is implemented on the client-side. It is called by ABBYY FineReader Engine after the block type has been changed in Image Viewer or in Zoom Viewer synchronized with Image Viewer. It allows you to cancel the type change.

The block type can be changed via the block properties toolbar or popup menu, or indirectly, by adding table separators to a block which previously was of non-table type.

Visual Basic .NET

[in] Contains the index of the selected block. The index is in the ILayout::VisualBlocks collection.
[in] The new type of the block specified by a BlockTypeEnum enumeration constant.

Return values

This method has no specific return values. It returns the standard return values of ABBYY FineReader Engine functions.


The client implementation of this method must assure that all exceptions thrown inside the method are caught and handled and no exceptions are propagated outside the method. Propagation of an exception outside the method may lead to unpredictable results (such as program termination).
