SaveXmlCallback Delegate

Summary
Optional delegate method that is used with the SaveXml methods.
Syntax
C#
C++
public delegate bool SaveXmlCallback( 
   SaveXmlData data 
) 
vb[VB Syntax] 
Public Delegate Function SaveXmlCallback( _ 
   ByVal _data_ As SaveXmlData _ 
) As Boolean 
public delegate bool SaveXmlCallback(  
   SaveXmlData^ data 
) 

Parameters

data
An instance of the SaveXmlData interface containing the progress callback data.

Return Value

true to write this DICOM element to the output XML file; false to skip writing this element to the output XML file.

Remarks

This delegate is called once for each DICOM element before it is written to the XML file.

Example

This example loads a sample DICOM file, and saves the contents as an XML file. The XML file output is customized by using the SaveXmlCallback delegate.

  • The 'element' is changed to 'element_newname'
  • The 'tag' attribute is changed to 'tag_newname'
  • An attribute is added to the 'dataset' element: 'new_attribute'
  • A comment is added: 'NEW COMMENT: customized XML file using the SaveXmlCallback'

Then the customized XML file is read into a DicomDataSet object using the LoadXmlCallback
