LoadXml(Stream) Method

Summary

Loads the IODs and modules contained in stream into the internal DICOM IOD Table.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public void LoadXml( 
   Stream stream 
) 
Public Overloads Sub LoadXml( _ 
   ByVal stream As Stream _ 
)  
public: 
void LoadXml(  
   Stream^ stream 
)  

Parameters

stream
A Stream that contains the name of the XML file containing the DICOM IODs and modules to load

Remarks

Quickly and easily customize the DICOM IOD table by editing the dicTableIodModule.xml file that is found in the LEADTOOLS Sample Images folder. The dicTableIodModule.xml file is a human-readable XML file that lists all of the DICOM IODs and DICOM Modules currently defined in the DICOM Specification. You can edit this with any text editor (for example, notepad) to add or remove DICOM IODs and modules. Then call LoadXml and pass the full path of the dicTableIodModule.xml file, or pass a Stream containing the contents of this file. Note that calling LoadXml will first remove all DICOM IODs and modules that are already present in the table. For more information, see the topic Working with DICOM Tables

Example

This example loads the DICOM IOD table from the dicTableIodModule.xml file that is shipped with the toolkit.

C#
VB
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Dicom; 
 
public void TestDicomIodTable_LoadXml_Stream() 
{ 
   DicomEngine.Startup(); 
 
   DicomIodTable.Instance.Reset(); 
 
   // Since the table is empty, the count is zero. 
   int count = 0; 
   DicomIod iod = DicomIodTable.Instance.GetFirst(null, true); 
   while (iod != null) 
   { 
      iod = DicomIodTable.Instance.GetNext(iod, true); 
      count++; 
   }
