Load Method

Summary
Loads the DICOM Directory Data Set from the specified file.
Syntax
C#
Objective-C
C++/CLI
public void Load( 
   string name, 
   DicomDataSetLoadFlags flags 
) 
- (BOOL)load:(NSString *)path flags:(LTDicomDataSetLoadFlags)flags error:(NSError **)error; 
public: 
void Load(  
   String^ name, 
   DicomDataSetLoadFlags flags 
)  

Parameters

name
The name of the DICOMDIR File.

flags
Meta-header flags and Transfer Syntax flags that indicate the file characteristics to use when loading the file.

Remarks

In addition to loading the DICOM Directory Data Set, the method also sets the destination folder to the folder in which the specified DICOMDIR File resides. Additional DICOM files in this folder (and subfolders) can be added to the loaded Directory. For more information, refer to Load.

Example
C#
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Dicom; 
 
 
public class MyDicomDir : DicomDir 
{ 
   public MyDicomDir(string destinationFolder, string path) : base(destinationFolder, path) { }

      { 
         string msg = string.Format("About to add the file '{0}'{1}{1}Proceed?", fileName, Environment.NewLine); 
         Console.WriteLine($"{msg}"); 
         return DicomDirInsertFileCommand.Continue;
