L_UINT16 nAction;

the action to perform

HDICOMDS hDS;

data set

Sends an N-ACTION-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.

pszInstance

The instance of the class. A server may, for example, have three instances of the Nuclear Medicine Class. This value identifies the data with a specific instance.

nAction

An application specific action to be performed on the specified data set.

hDS

The data set on which the specified action is to be performed.

Returns

DICOM_SUCCESS

The function was successful.

>0

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

Calling this function generates a call to RECEIVENACTIONREQUESTCALLBACK on the SCP. The SCP should respond by calling L_DicomSendNActionResponse which will generate a call to RECEIVENACTIONRESPONSECALLBACK.

The action specified may be the addition of a new patient, the deletion of a patient, the addition of a new study, a print job, etc. The nAction value, which designates the action to perform is determined by the server. To find out the values used, you must contact the organization that created the server. When creating a server, the values and their corresponding meanings are determined by those creating the server.
