Metadata can not be retrieved with GFLAx, but with GFLSDK.

sorry ...
I install GLASDK and run the VB example ...
Does the form1 is get picture's IPTC data (the button is Get comments from a picture) ?
But when i run the project, other Examples button succeeded, only Example1 had wrong message.

He said "can't find method or ... "

extGetGflComments Infos.Comment, Comments, Infos.NumberOfComment

What happens? And does this example1 can get metadata ?

After some effort i found this URL for you:

http://www.watermarker.com/exif-iptc-gps/

Try it out - have it spit out the EXIF/IPTC information before you tell GFL to open the image :) Haven't tried it though. Tell me how it works out!

Cheers,

I'd already use this ActiveX and very useful.
I use this dll in VB and this component can read EXIF ,IPTC .
Of course can write it .
But Watermarker is not free software. You must be order it.
Thanks a lot.
