Summary
Updates a buffer with the binary value of the specified data element.
Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public bool GetBinaryValue( 
   DicomElement element, 
   IntPtr value, 
   int length 
) 
Public Overloads Function GetBinaryValue( _ 
   ByVal element As DicomElement, _ 
   ByVal value As IntPtr, _ 
   ByVal length As Integer _ 
) As Boolean 
public: 
bool GetBinaryValue(  
   DicomElement^ element, 
   IntPtr value, 
   int length 
)  

Parameters

element
An item in the Data Set.

value
Pointer to a buffer that will be updated with the binary value associated with the specified item in the Data Set. The user is responsible to allocate the memory for this buffer.

length
Number of bytes, from the binary value, to write to the buffer.

Return Value

true if the method was able to update the buffer with the binary value; otherwise, false.

Remarks

Note: The user is responsible to allocate the memory for the buffer pointed to by value. If the length specified by the DicomElement.Length property is greater than [length](" id="lengthparameterlink" class="popuplink.html), then the binary value copied to the buffer will be truncated to the smaller length. If the length specified by DicomElement.Length is less than [length](" id="lengthparameterlink" class="popuplink.html), then the entire binary value of element will be copied to the buffer.

This method can be called for every Value Representation, and it will return the exact value in the Value Field (unconverted).

Example

For an example, refer to SetIntValue.
