loadAsync Method

Loads a file from an ILeadStream asynchronously.
public void loadAsync(ILeadStream stream, int flags) 


stream that contains the data to be loaded

Meta-header flags and Transfer Syntax flags that indicate the file characteristics to use when loading the file.


If you know certain characteristics of the file, you can set those in flags. Any characteristic that you do not set will be automatically determined. For example, if you know that the Meta-header is present, but you do not know the byte order, or whether the Value Representation is Implicit or Explicit, you can set only DicomDataSetLoadFlags.MetaHeaderPresent in flags. During loading, LEADTOOLS will determine the byte order and whether the byte order is Implicit or Explicit. If you do not know any characteristics of the file, set flags to DicomDataSetLoadFlags.None and LEADTOOLS will automatically determine all the file characteristics and load the file accordingly.

If DicomDataSetLoadFlags.LoadAndClose is not included in flags, the file will remain open until the object is destructed, or one of the following methods is called: Reset, Initialize, or Load (again). If LoadAndClose is used for large images it might slow performance; however, the file handle will be released. If set to None, large images will load quickly, and image traversal can begin immediately. Until the file handle is released, nothing can be done to the image.
