LoadXml(String) Method

Summary

Loads the UIDs contained in file into the internal DICOM UID Table.

Syntax

C#
VB
WinRT C#
C++
public void LoadXml(  
   string file 
) 
Public Overloads Sub LoadXml( _ 
   ByVal file As String _ 
)  
public void LoadXml(  
   string file 
) 
 function Leadtools.Dicom.DicomUidTable.LoadXml(String)(  
   file  
) 
public: 
void LoadXml(  
   String^ file 
)  

Parameters

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

Remarks

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

Example

This example loads the DICOM UID table from the dicTableUid.xml file that is shipped with the toolkit.

C#
VB
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Dicom; 
 
public void TestDicomUidTable_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 
   DicomUidTable.Instance.Reset(); 
 
   // Since the table is empty, the count is zero. 
   int count = DicomUidTable.Instance.GetCount(); 
 
   // Load the UID table from the dicTableUid.xml file that ships with the toolkit 
   DicomUidTable.Instance.LoadXml(@"C:\Users\Public\Documents\LEADTOOLS Images\dicTableUid.xml"); 
 
   // Get the count -- it will be 295 
   count = DicomUidTable.Instance.GetCount(); 
 
   DicomEngine.Shutdown(); 
}
