L_DicomSetKeepPixelDataIntactFlag

#include "Ltdic.h"

L_LTDIC_API L_VOID L_DicomSetKeepPixelDataIntactFlag(hDS, bSet)

Enables or disables the pre-processing of image data when a function that gets a bitmap from a Pixel Data element is called.

Parameters

HDICOMDS hDS

A DICOM handle to the data set.

L_BOOL bSet

Flag the indicates whether to enable or disable the pre-processing of image data when a function that gets a bitmap from a Pixel Data element is called. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
TRUE Do not pre-process the image data.
FALSE Pre-process the image data.

Returns

None.

Comments

When a function that gets a bitmap from a data set is called, such as L_DicomGetImage or L_DicomGetImageList, LEADTOOLS may pre-process the image data in the bitmap handle for optimal display. Call the L_DicomGetKeepPixelDataIntactFlag function to determine whether LEADTOOLS will pre-process the image data. By default LEADTOOLS pre-processes the image data.

Calling the L_DicomSetKeepPixelDataIntactFlag function with bSet set to TRUE stops LEADTOOLS from pre-processing the image data in the bitmap handle. Please note that this may result in unexpected behavior when a LEADTOOLS display or image processing function is called for that bitmap handle.
