Adds pixels to the input region so that it contains no holes.


void avl::FillRegionHoles
	const avl::Region& inRegion,
	avl::RegionConnectivity::Type inConnectivity,
	int inMinHoleArea,
	atl::Optional<int> inMaxHoleArea,
	avl::Region& outRegion


Name Type Range Default Description
inRegion const Region& Input region
inConnectivity RegionConnectivity::Type Type of connectivity used for the region foreground
inMinHoleArea int 0 - Minimal area of a hole to be filled
inMaxHoleArea Optional<int> 0 - NIL Maximal area of a hole to be filled
outRegion Region& Output region
