static L_UINT16 LDicomContextGroup::LoadXml(pszFile, uFlags)

Loads the context groups contained in the pszFile into the internal DICOM Context Group Table.


L_TCHAR *pszFile

Character string that contains the name of the XML file containing the context groups to load.

L_UINT uFlags

Value Meaning
>0 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


Starting in version 17.5 of the toolkit, you can easily and quickly customize the DICOM Context Group Table by editing the dicTableContextGroup.xml file that is found in the LEADTOOLS Sample Images folder.  The dicTableContextGroup.xml file is a human-readable XML file that lists all of the DICOM context groups currently defined in the DICOM Specification.  You can edit this with any text editor (i.e. notepad) to add or remove DICOM context groups. Then call LDicomContextGroup::LoadXml() and pass the full path of the dicTableContextGroup.xml file.   Note that calling LoadXml() will first remove all context groups that are already present in the table.

For more information, refer to the Working with DICOM Tables topic.
