GetValue<T>(DicomElement,T) Method

Summary
Returns the value of a DICOM element.
Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public T GetValue<T>( 
   DicomElement element, 
   T defaultValue 
) 
Public Overloads Function GetValue(Of T)( _ 
   ByVal element As DicomElement, _ 
   ByVal defaultValue As T _ 
) As T 
public: 
T^ GetValuegeneric<typename T> 
(  
   DicomElement^ element, 
   T^ defaultValue 
)  

Parameters

element
an item in the data set

defaultValue
a value of type T that is returned if the actual value cannot be retrieved.

Type Parameters

T
specifies the type of the value to return

Return Value

a value of type T that is the value of the DICOM element

Remarks

For information on this method, see GetValue.

Example

This example will insert several elements into a DICOM data set, and then retrieve the values

VB
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Dicom;
