WindowLevelCommand Class

Summary

Converts a 12 or 16-bit grayscale image to an 8-bit grayscale or a 24-bit RGB image. This class is available in Medical toolkits only.

Syntax

C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
WinRT C#
C++
public class WindowLevelCommand : RasterCommand 
@interface LTWindowLevelCommand : LTRasterCommand 
public class WindowLevelCommand extends RasterCommand 
function Leadtools.ImageProcessing.Core.WindowLevelCommand() 

Remarks
  • This command supports 12 and 16-bit grayscale. Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale images is available only in the Document/Medical toolkits.
  • This command does not support 32-bit grayscale images.
  • RasterByteOrder.Romm and RasterByteOrder.Gray are not supported by this command.

Only TIFF and DICOM file formats are capable of saving images that have been window-leveled. Images can be window-leveled by calling WindowLevel and specifying RasterWindowLevelMode.PaintAndProcessing for the flags parameter, by using the WindowLevelCommand or by loading an image from a file format that supports Window Leveling. If a window-leveled image is saved as any other file format, the image data will be converted before being saved. For more information, refer to Saving Window-Leveled Images. See WindowLevelExtCommand for a version of this class using 16-bit lookup tables. LEADTOOLS supports two types of LUTs for 10-16-bit grayscale images (8-bit LUT and 16-bit LUT). Typical grayscale image display and processing is done using an 8-bit LUT. But, you can also use a 16-bit LUT, which offers more precision. Some special video cards and monitors also support display of grayscale images using a 16-bit LUT. For more information, refer to Introduction to Image Processing With LEADTOOLS. For more information, refer to Grayscale Images. In Silverlight versions of LEADTOOLS, this image processing command will fail if the image data for the RasterImage object is stored internally using a Silverlight WriteableBitmap object. For more information, refer to Image Processing Command Limitations in Silverlight.
