DicomTag Class

Summary
The DicomTag structure contains information about supported tags.
Syntax
C#
Objective-C
C++/CLI
Java
public class DicomTag 
@interface LTDicomTag : NSObject 
public class DicomTag 
public ref class DicomTag  
Remarks

Internally LEADTOOLS maintains a table or list of available tag values. These values can include default values for standard tags available in DICOM, as well as user defined tags. You can access any of this information, add to the table, or delete items from the table using the methods of the class DicomTagTable. To see the default values, refer to the Data Element Tag Table.

Example
C#
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Dicom; 
 
 
public void TestTagTable() 
{ 
 
   //Make sure to initialize the DICOM engine, this needs to be done only once  
   //In the whole application 
   DicomEngine.Startup(); 
 
   //We don't need to call this since the DicomEngine.Startup already does that for us 
   //These calls are for demonstration purposes only 
   DicomTagTable.Instance.Reset(); 
   DicomTagTable.Instance.Default(); 
 
   //We can also call FindByIndex if we know the index of this Tag 
   DicomTag tag = DicomTagTable.Instance.Find(DicomTag.PatientName); 
   DicomTagTable.Instance.Delete(tag); 
 
   DicomTag tag1 = DicomTagTable.Instance.Insert(DicomTag.PatientName, 0xFFFFFFFF, "Patient's Name", DicomVRType.PN, 1, 1, 1); 
 
   Console.WriteLine("Tag Information:"); 
   Console.WriteLine("code is:         {0}", tag1.ToHexString()); 
   Console.WriteLine("VR is :          {0}", tag1.VR); 
   Console.WriteLine("MinVM is :       {0}", tag1.MinVM); 
   Console.WriteLine("MaxVM is :       {0}", tag1.MaxVM); 
   Console.WriteLine("VMDivider is :   {0}", tag1.VMDivider); 
 
   Debug.Assert(DicomTagTable.Instance.Exists(tag1) == true); 
   DicomTagTable.Instance.SetName(tag1, "Patient's Name 1"); 
 
   int count = 0; 
   //If we want to loop through all the Tags in the table we can do this: 
   tag = DicomTagTable.Instance.GetFirst(); 
   while (tag != null) 
   { 
      // We can also access the rest of the properties of DicomTag in here, 
      // such as DicomTagType.Code, DicomTagType.Name, DicomTagType.Mask 
 
      if (tag.Code == DicomTag.PatientName) 
      { 
         Console.WriteLine(tag.Name); 
      } 
      count++; 
      tag = DicomTagTable.Instance.GetNext(tag); 
   } 
   //We can use GetLast and GetPrevious to achieve the same thing 
 
   Debug.Assert(count == DicomTagTable.Instance.GetCount()); 
 
   DicomEngine.Shutdown(); 
}
