FreeElementValue Method

Summary
Frees the memory for a value.
Syntax
C#
Objective-C
C++/CLI
Java
public void FreeElementValue( 
   DicomElement element 
) 
- (void)freeElementValue:(LTDicomElement *)element; 
public void freeElementValue(DicomElement element) 
public: 
void FreeElementValue(  
   DicomElement^ element 
)  

Parameters

element
An item in the Data Set.

Remarks

Calling this method following a call to one of the DicomDataSet.GetxxxValue, DicomDataSet.GetxxxValuePtr methods, or the GetElementValueCount method will free the memory allocated for the retrieved value. This memory will be freed anyway when the Data Set is freed. Using this method allows you to minimize the memory use in your application.

Example
C#
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Dicom; 
 
 
public void DicomSetGetValueTest()

   //Make sure to initialize the DICOM engine, this needs to be done only once
