L_LTDIC_API L_INT L_DicomSendNActionRequest(hNet, nPresentationID, nMessageID, pszClass, pszInstance, nAction, hDS)
A DICOM Network handle to the peer member of the connection.
Presentation ID. The presentation ID provides information about both the class type of the data and the transfer syntax to use when transferring the data.
Message ID. Each message sent by a member of a connection should have a unique ID. Since a member of a connection may send several messages, this ID allows that member to identify when a specific request has been completed.
Class affected by the request. This will be an SOP Class or an SOP MetaClass.
The instance of the class. A server may, for example, have three instances of the Nuclear Medicine Class. This value identifies the data with a specific instance.
An application specific action to be performed on the specified data set.
The data set on which the specified action is to be performed.
|DICOM_SUCCESS||The function was successful.|
|>0||An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.|
Calling this function generates a call to RECEIVENACTIONREQUESTCALLBACK on the SCP. The SCP should respond by calling L_DicomSendNActionResponse which will generate a call to RECEIVENACTIONRESPONSECALLBACK.
The action specified may be the addition of a new patient, the deletion of a patient, the addition of a new study, a print job, etc. The nAction value, which designates the action to perform is determined by the server. To find out the values used, you must contact the organization that created the server. When creating a server, the values and their corresponding meanings are determined by those creating the server.

L_INT CreateActionArguments(L_UINT16 nAction, HDICOMDS hDS)
this function should create a data set for the required
arguments for nAction
in this sample, it simply creates a dummy data set
