GetSignaturesCount Method

Summary

Returns the number of Digital Signatures in the main Data Set or in an item of a sequence of items.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public int GetSignaturesCount( 
   DicomElement item 
) 
Public Function GetSignaturesCount( _ 
   ByVal item As DicomElement _ 
) As Integer 
public: 
int GetSignaturesCount(  
   DicomElement^ item 
)  

Parameters

item
An item of a sequence of items in the Data Set. The method returns the number of Digital Signatures in this Item. If this parameter is set to null, the method will return the number of Digital Signatures in the main Data Set.

Return Value

The number of Digital Signatures in the specified item, or in the main Data Set if no item is specified.

Remarks

The method computes the number of Digital Signatures by counting the number of items under the Digital Signatures sequence (FFFA,FFFA) which is located under the item specified by item or on the root of the Data Set if the parameter is set to null. The method will return 0 if this sequence does not exist. One way of enumerating the Digital Signatures in the main Data Set or in an item of a sequence of items is by using this method along with the GetSignature method.

Example

This example will enumerate all digital signatures in a DICOM dataset.

C#
VB
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Dicom; 
 
public void EnumerateSignatures() 
{ 
   string dicomFileName = Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir, "Signed.dcm");

   //In the whole application 
   DicomEngine.Startup();

   { 
      //Load DICOM File 
      dataset.Load(dicomFileName, DicomDataSetLoadFlags.None); 
      // We will enumerate the Digital Signatures in the main Data Set 
      int signaturesCount = dataset.GetSignaturesCount(null);
