GetOverlayGroupNumber Method

Summary
Gets the overlay group number.
Syntax
C#
C++/CLI
Java
public int GetOverlayGroupNumber( 
   int index 
) 
public int getOverlayGroupNumber(int index) 
public: 
int GetOverlayGroupNumber(  
   int index 
)  

Parameters

index
The zero-based index of the overlay whose overlay group number is required.

Return Value

The overlay group number.

Remarks

Because DICOM uses "Repeating Groups" to represent multiple overlays, the value returned by this method is useful in knowing under which group number an overlay exists.

Example
C#
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Dicom; 
 
 
public void TestOverlay() 
{ 
   string dicomFileName = Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir, "DICOM", "Overlay.dcm"); 
   //Make sure to initialize the DICOM engine, this needs to be done only once  
   //In the whole application 
   DicomEngine.Startup(); 
   using (DicomDataSet ds = new DicomDataSet()) 
   { 
      //Load DICOM File 
      ds.Load(dicomFileName, DicomDataSetLoadFlags.None); 
 
      if (ds.OverlayCount > 0) 
      { 
         RasterOverlayAttributes attributes = ds.GetOverlayAttributes(0); 
         if (attributes != null) 
         { 
            // We can call in here methods like GetOverlayGroupNumber, IsOverlayInDataset  
            // and GetOverlayActivationLayer to get some further infromation about the overlay 
 
            //Let's get the overlay Image, If RasterOverlayAttributes.NumFramesInOverlay  
            //Is greater than 1 we can call GetOverlayImages to extract all the frames 
            RasterImage overlayImage = ds.GetOverlayImage(0); 
            if (overlayImage != null) 
            { 
               using (DicomDataSet ds1 = new DicomDataSet()) 
               { 
                  ds1.Initialize(DicomClassType.DXImageStoragePresentation, DicomDataSetInitializeType.ExplicitVRLittleEndian); 
                  ds1.SetOverlayAttributes(0, attributes, DicomSetOverlayFlags.None); 
                  ds1.SetOverlayImage(0, overlayImage);//We can call SetOverlayImages if the overlay has more than one frame 
                  ds1.Save(Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir, "DICOM", "NewOverlay.dcm"), DicomDataSetSaveFlags.None); 
               } 
            } 
         } 
      } 
   } 
   DicomEngine.Shutdown(); 
}
