data set to be found

Sends a C-FIND-REQ message to a peer member of a connection. This function is available in the PACS Imaging Toolkit.

Parameter Description
hNet A DICOM Network handle to the peer member of the connection.
nPresentationID Presentation ID. The presentation ID provides information about both the class type of the data and the transfer syntax to use when transferring the data.
nMessageID Message ID. Each message sent by a member of a connection should have a unique ID. Since a member of a connection may send several messages, this ID allows that member to identify when a specific request has been completed.
pszClass Class affected by the request. This will be an SOP Class or an SOP MetaClass.
nPriority The priority level of the message. The Service Class Provider may or may not support priority. Therefore, setting this parameter may or may not have any effect. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  COMMAND_PRIORITY_LOW [0x0002] Low priority message.
  COMMAND_PRIORITY_MEDIUM [0x0000] Medium priority message.
  COMMAND_PRIORTY_HIGH [0x0001] High priority message.
hDS Pointer to the data set to be found.

Returns

DICOM_SUCCESS

The function was successful.

>0

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

Calling this function generates a call to RECEIVECFINDREQUESTCALLBACK on the SCP. The SCP should respond by calling L_DicomSendCFindResponse which will generate a call to RECEIVECFINDRESPONSECALLBACK.

You must create a data set and insert elements corresponding to the data you wish to find. A pointer to this data set is then passed as a parameter to this function.
