static void SaveXml(  
   DicomDataSet^ ds, 
   String^ fileName, 
   DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags xmlFlags 
)  

Parameters

ds
The contents of this data set to be saved

fileName
The name of the output XML file

xmlFlags
Flags that affect how binary data and other information is saved in the XML output file

Remarks

Use this method to export a DicomDataSet as a human-readable XML file. By default, all binary data is written using Base64 encoding, but this behavior can be modified by passing appropriate DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags

Pass the DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags.NativeDicomModel flag to save to the 'Native DICOM Model' XML format described in PS3.19.A.1 of the DICOM Specification. One of the following flags can be used together with the DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags.NativeDicomModel flag to control how binary data is written. If DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags.NativeDicomModel, is not also included, all of the following flags are ignored. Callers should only pass one of the three flags. If more than one of the flags is passed, precedence is given in the order that they appear below.

  • InlineBinary
  • BulkDataUri
  • BulkDataUuid

If none of these three flags is passed, the default behavior is BulkDataUuid.

   DicomDataSet ds = new DicomDataSet(); 
 
   // Load an existing DICOM file 
   ds.Load(dicomFileNameIn, DicomDataSetLoadFlags.None); 
 
   // Save as NativeDicomModel 
   const DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags xmlFlags = 
      DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags.NativeDicomModel | 
      DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags.TrimWhiteSpace | 
      DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags.BulkDataUuid; 
   ds.SaveXml(xmlFileNameOut, xmlFlags);
