SendAssociateRequest Method

Summary
Sends an Associate Request message to a connection.
Syntax
C#
C++
public void SendAssociateRequest( 
   DicomAssociate associate 
) 
public: 
void SendAssociateRequest(  
   DicomAssociate^ associate 
)  

Parameters

associate
A DicomAssociate object.

Remarks

Calling SendAssociateRequest generates a call to OnReceiveAssociateRequest on the server. Within the callback method, the server may accept or reject the Association request by calling SendAssociateAccept or SendAssociateReject. A DICOM Association must be established between an SCU and an SCP before any DICOM messages or data can be transmitted between them. For more information on creating a DICOM Association, refer to Creating a DICOM Associate Connection.

When the DICOM Association is no longer needed, it should be ended. For more information, refer to Closing a DICOM Associate Connection.
