WindowLevelCommand Class

Summary
Converts a 12 or 16-bit grayscale image to an 8-bit grayscale or a 24-bit RGB image. This class is available in Medical toolkits only.
Syntax
C#
VB
Objective-C
C++
Java
public class WindowLevelCommand : RasterCommand 
Public Class WindowLevelCommand  
   Inherits RasterCommand 
@interface LTWindowLevelCommand : LTRasterCommand 
public class WindowLevelCommand extends RasterCommand 
public ref class WindowLevelCommand : public RasterCommand   
Remarks
  • This command supports 12 and 16-bit grayscale. Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale images is available only in the Document/Medical toolkits.
  • This command does not support 32-bit grayscale images.
  • RasterByteOrder.Romm and RasterByteOrder.Gray are not supported by this command.

Only TIFF and DICOM file formats are capable of saving images that have been window-leveled. Images can be window-leveled by calling WindowLevel and specifying RasterWindowLevelMode.PaintAndProcessing for the flags parameter, by using the WindowLevelCommand or by loading an image from a file format that supports Window Leveling. If a window-leveled image is saved as any other file format, the image data will be converted before being saved. For more information, refer to Saving Window-Leveled Images. See WindowLevelExtCommand for a version of this class using 16-bit lookup tables. LEADTOOLS supports two types of LUTs for 10-16-bit grayscale images (8-bit LUT and 16-bit LUT). Typical grayscale image display and processing is done using an 8-bit LUT. But, you can also use a 16-bit LUT, which offers more precision. Some special video cards and monitors also support display of grayscale images using a 16-bit LUT. For more information, refer to Introduction to Image Processing With LEADTOOLS. For more information, refer to Grayscale Images.
