L_DicomFindLastElement

#include "Ltdic.h"

L_LTDIC_API pDICOMELEMENT L_DicomFindLastElement(hDS, pElement, nTag, bTree)

HDICOMDS hDS;

a DICOM handle

pDICOMELEMENT pElement;

pointer to a DICOMELEMENT structure

L_UINT32 nTag;

tag that indicates the element to find

L_BOOL bTree;

flag that indicates how to evaluate the Data Set

Returns a pointer to the last item in the Data Set with the specified tag.

Parameter Description
hDS A DICOM handle.
pElement Pointer to a DICOMELEMENT structure within the Data Set.
nTag Tag that specifies the item to find. For a list of default tag values, refer to Data Element Tag Constants.
bTree Flag that indicates how the Data Set will be evaluated. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE Evaluate the Data Set as a tree.
  FALSE Evaluate the Data Set as a list.

Returns

!NULL

A pointer to a DICOMELEMENT structure that contains the last item in the Data Set with the specified tag.

NULL

An item with the specified tag was not found.

Comments

If the Data Set is evaluated as a tree structure, this function returns the last item on the same level as pElement with the same parent as pElement, that has tag nTag.

For the sake of these illustrations, the order of siblings is top to bottom. Therefore last is the item closest to the bottom.

Please note that the numbering of the items of interest in this first illustration is arbitrary and does not imply order.

If the passed pointer points to :

The function returns a pointer to :

Item 1

The last sibling (same level, same parent) of Item 1 that has tag nTag, if such an item exists. If such an item does not exist, the function returns NULL. Searching begins at the bottom.

Item 2

The last sibling (same level, same parent) of Item 2 that has tag nTag, if such an item exists. If such an item does not exist, the function returns NULL. Searching begins at the bottom.

Item 3

The last sibling (same level, same parent) of Item 3 that has tag nTag, if such an item exists. If such an item does not exist, the function returns NULL. Searching begins at the bottom.

If the Data Set is evaluated as a list, this function returns the last item in the entire list that has tag nTag. Searching begins at the bottom of the list.

For the sake of these illustrations, the order of siblings is top to bottom. Therefore last is the item closest to the bottom.

Please note that the numbering of the items in this illustration does indicate the order of the items when the Data Set is evaluated as a list.

If the passed pointer points to :

The function returns a pointer to :

Item 1

The last item in the list that has tag nTag, if such an item exists. If an item with tag nTag is not found, NULL is returned. Searching begins at the bottom.

Item 14

The last item in the list that has tag nTag, if such an item exists. If an item with tag nTag is not found, NULL is returned. Searching begins at the bottom.

Item 22

The last item in the list that has tag nTag, if such an item exists. If an item with tag nTag is not found, NULL is returned. Searching begins at the bottom.
