LoadXml(string) Method

Summary

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

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public void LoadXml( 
   string file 
) 
Public Overloads Sub LoadXml( _ 
   ByVal file As String _ 
)  
public: 
void LoadXml(  
   String^ file 
)  

Parameters

file
string 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. 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() 
{ 
   //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 
   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++; 
   } 
 
   // Load the IOD table from the dicTableIodModule.xml file that ships with the toolkit 
   DicomIodTable.Instance.LoadXml(@"C:\Users\Public\Documents\LEADTOOLS Images\dicTableIodModule.xml"); 
 
   // Get the count -- it will be 158 
   iod = DicomIodTable.Instance.GetFirst(null, true); 
   while (iod != null) 
   { 
      iod = DicomIodTable.Instance.GetNext(iod, true); 
      count++; 
   } 
 
   DicomEngine.Shutdown(); 
}

   Loop
