TagsEditor.ID3V2_GeneralObjectFrameAddFromFile method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page



Adds to the ID3V2 tag a new general object frame (GEOB) taken from the specified file. If a general object frame having the same description already exists, it will be replaced by the new one.

The modification only happens in memory and not directly into the original sound file: in order to store modifications inside the file you need to call the TagsEditor.ID3V2_SaveChanges method.


For further details about methods related to tags editing refer to the TagsEditor object.

For details about the editing of tags see the How to edit tag info in sound files tutorial.
