GetWindowCount Method

Summary
Gets the number of values under the window center element.
Syntax
C#
VB
C++
Java
public int GetWindowCount( 
   int frameIndex 
) 
Public Function GetWindowCount( _ 
   ByVal frameIndex As Integer _ 
) As Integer 
public int getWindowCount(int frameIndex) 
public: 
int GetWindowCount(  
   int frameIndex 
)  

Parameters

frameIndex
A zero-based index that identifies the frame number in the dataset. If the dataset does not support Multi-frames, this parameter is ignored.

Return Value

The number of values under the window center element.

Remarks

This property gets the number of values under the Window Center (0028,1050) element; this should also equal the number of values under the Window Width (0028,1051) element. The Multi-frame Functional Groups module may have a Shared Functional Groups Sequence item, and/or a Per-frame Functional Groups Sequence item. Either of these items may have a Frame VOI LUT Sequence (0028,9132) item. If the following elements are not found at the top level in the dataset, this method looks in the Shared Functional Groups Sequence item and the Per-frame Functional Groups Sequence items.

(0028,1051) Window Width
(0028,1055) Window Center & Width Explanation

For a detailed discussion on Multi-frame Functional Groups see the topic Multi-frame Functional Groups.

Example

This example will load a DICOM dataset, extract the window center and window width and then update their values.

VB
