) 
- (nullable LTDicomElement *)insertKey:(LTDicomElement *)parent stringKey:(NSString *)key optional:(BOOL)optional; 
public DicomElement insertKey(DicomElement parent, String key, boolean optional) 
public: 
DicomElement^ InsertKey(  
   DicomElement^ parent, 
   String^ key, 
   bool optional 
)  

Parameters

parent
A key element in the Data Set. The new key element will be inserted as a child of this key element.

key
The type of key element to insert.

optional
