Providing Callbacks for ELS Services

If your application is using asynchronous operations for text recognition, it must provide a callback function for the ELS service to use. The callback function is based on the MappingCallbackProc prototype.

The Requesting Text Recognition topic describes how your application can request asynchronous text recognition from an ELS service. The following example shows an application that makes an asynchronous call to MappingRecognizeText. The callback function for text recognition is called RecognizeCallback. Note that the application must make sure that the property bag, the input text, the options, and the service are all valid until after the callback function has finished executing. Additionally, the application must ensure that MappingFreePropertyBag is called immediately after the bag is consumed by the callback function.

Note  It might be a good idea for your application to use the callback function to free the resources after it has finished processing or copying them.
