Integration: Third-Party Integration for Viewing
Viewing Side Options:
You can do nothing, and rely on Image-Master as a stand-alone
viewing product to be completely responsible for the search and
retrieval of scanned documents.
You can establish a DDE conversation with the
UI-less Image-Master control module (IMDDE.EXE) and request a
search and view, a view only, or a print only operation to be
performed. Image-Master, upon receiving your request, will gain the
window focus, raise the appropriate dialogs to prompt the user to
select a document (or documents), retrieve and view the selected
documents and return back to the idle mode.
You can create the viewing list file, establish a
conversation with the Viewing Module directly
(FVIEW32.EXE), and request retrieval and display (and/or print,
email) directly from your application.
CLS chose option (1) for scanning and
option (3) for viewing. This decision was partially arbitrary,
partially to meet user requirements, and partially because they are
limited in their inter-process communications abilities. Most other
third-party developers in other markets have elected to go with
option (2) for scanning
and option (2) for viewing as well.
