WaveformGroupCount Property

Summary

Gets the number of waveform multiplex groups that are included in the dataset.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public int WaveformGroupCount { get; } 
Public ReadOnly Property WaveformGroupCount As Integer 
public: 
property int WaveformGroupCount { 
   int get(); 
} 

Property Value

Value that represents the number of waveform multiplex groups that are included in the dataset.

Remarks

In DICOM, a waveform consists of one or more multiplex groups, each encoded into an item in the "Waveform Sequence" (5400,0100). Use this method to retrieve the number of items under that sequence. Once you know the total number of multiplex groups, call the GetWaveformGroup method to extract a specific group or the DeleteWaveformGroup method to delete it.

Example

This is a comprehensive sample, which shows how to insert a waveform group with one ECG channel into a dataset. The main method is InsertECGCWaveform ,and the rest of the methods are helping methods.All these methods are assumed to be part of the same class. The main method that creates the waveform group and adds it to the dataset
