L_VOID LDicomDS::SetKeepPixelDataIntactFlag(bSet)

Enables or disables the pre-processing of image data when a function that gets a bitmap from a Pixel Data element is called.



Flag the indicates whether to enable or disable the pre-processing of image data when a function that gets a bitmap from a Pixel Data element is called. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
TRUE Do not pre-process the image data.
FALSE Pre-process the image data.




When a function that gets a bitmap from a data set is called, such as LDicomDS::GetImage or LDicomDS::GetImageList, LEADTOOLS may pre-process the image data in the bitmap handle for optimal display. Call the LDicomDS::GetKeepPixelDataIntactFlag function to determine whether LEADTOOLS will pre-process the image data. By default LEADTOOLS pre-processes the image data.

Calling the LDicomDS::SetKeepPixelDataIntactFlag function with bSet set to TRUE stops LEADTOOLS from pre-processing the image data in the bitmap handle.

NOTE: This may result in unexpected behavior when a LEADTOOLS display or image processing function is called for that bitmap handle.
