Comments

Starting in version 17.5 of the toolkit, you can easily and quickly customize the DICOM Context Group table by editing the dicTableContextGroup.xml file that is found in the LEADTOOLS Sample Images folder.  The dicTableContextGroup.xml file is a human-readable XML file that lists all of the DICOM Context Groups currently defined in the DICOM Specification.  You can edit this with any text editor (for example, notepad) to add or remove DICOM Context Groups. Then call L_DicomLoadXmlContextGroup() and pass the complete path of the dicTableContextGroup.xml file. Note that calling  L_DicomLoadXmlContextGroup() will first remove all context groups that are already present in the table.

To see the default values for the DICOM Context Group Table, refer to the Default Data Context Group Table.

For more information, see the topic Working with DICOM Tables.
