DicomEngine Class

Summary
Provides the functionality required for initializing and freeing the data used by the LEADTOOLS DICOM .NET Class Library.
Syntax
C#
Objective-C
C++/CLI
Java
public sealed class DicomEngine 
@interface LTDicomEngine : NSObject // STATIC CLASS 
public class DicomEngine  
public ref class DicomEngine sealed  
Remarks

To begin using the LEADTOOLS DICOM .NET Class Library, the user must initialize the data required by the library. The data is initialized by calling the Startup method.

Once the Startup method has been called, you can use the different features exposed by the library.

When the LEADTOOLS DICOM .NET Class Library is no longer to be used, the user must free the data associated with the library by calling Shutdown.

Example
C#
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Dicom; 
 
 
public void DicomSetGetValueTest() 
{ 
   //Make sure to initialize the DICOM engine, this needs to be done only once  
   //In the whole application 
   DicomEngine.Startup();
