OnLongOperationStarted Method of the IDocumentViewerEvents Interface
This method is implemented on the client-side. It is called by ABBYY FineReader Engine before the beginning of a long-term processing operation (e.g., layout analysis, recognition) in Document Viewer. When the operation is performed, all commands of Document Viewer are disabled and the component is locked. If Document Viewer is connected to Component Synchronizer, all other unlocked synchronized components are locked too.
The method informs the client that a long-term processing operation has been started. You can use this method to block GUI elements of your application during such operations.
Visual Basic .NET
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).
