) 
 function Leadtools.Dicom.DicomTagTable.LoadXml(String)(

) 
public: 
void LoadXml(  
   String^ file 
)  

Parameters

file
string that contains the name of the XML file containing the DICOM element tags to load.

Remarks

Beginning with version 18 of the toolkit, you can easily and quickly customize the DICOM Element Tag table by editing the dicTableElement.xml file that is found in the LEADTOOLS Sample Images folder. The dicTableElement.xml file is a human-readable XML file that lists all of the DICOM Element Tags currently defined in the DICOM Specification. You can edit this with any text editor (for example, notepad) to add or remove DICOM Elements. Then call LoadXml and pass the full path of the dicTableElement.xml file. Note that calling LoadXml will first remove all DICOM elements that are already present in the table. For more information, see the Working with DICOM Tablestopic .

Example

This example loads the DICOM Element Tag table from the dicTableElement.xml file that is shipped with the toolkit.

C#
VB
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Dicom; 
 
public void TestDicomTagTable_LoadXml() 
{ 
 
   //Make sure to initialize the DICOM engine, this needs to be done only once  
   //In the whole application 
   DicomEngine.Startup(); 
 
   //We don't need to call this since the DicomEngine.Startup already does that for us 
   //These calls are for demonstration purposes only 
   DicomTagTable.Instance.Reset(); 
 
   // Since the table is empty, the count is zero. 
   int count = DicomTagTable.Instance.GetCount(); 
 
   // Load the DICOM Element Tag table from the dicTableElement.xml file that ships with the toolkit 
   DicomTagTable.Instance.LoadXml(@"C:\Users\Public\Documents\LEADTOOLS Images\dicTableElement.xml"); 
 
   // Get the count -- it will be around 3000 
   count = DicomTagTable.Instance.GetCount(); 
 
   DicomEngine.Shutdown(); 
}
