QMed_ExportAreaImage(areaRef; targetPath; targetType):error
areaRef Longint QMedical area reference
targetPath Text Pathname to the target file
targetType String4 4-char image type identifier
error Longint Error result

Exports the image from a QMedical plug-in area to an image file.

The QMedical plug-in area is specified by areaRef. If areaRef is not a valid QMedical plug-in area reference, qmed_paramErr is returned.

The target (destination) file is specified by targetPath. The target file may not already exist, but its containing folder path must be valid. If targetPath points to an existing file, the latter will be replaced by the new file. If targetPath is empty, a file selection dialog is presented for the user to select the target directory and specify a file name.

The targetType parameter specifies the target file format. If targetPath is specified and targetType is passed an empty string, targetType defaults to "PICT". If targetPath is not specified, both the target path and type will have to be selected from the file selection dialog. In any other case, an error will be generated (qmed_ParamErr). If the user cancels the dialog, error qmed_userCancelErr is returned.
