DeleteOverlayBox Method

Requests the Print SCP to delete the specified Basic Print Image Overlay Box SOP Instance.
public void DeleteOverlayBox( 
   string overlayBoxInstanceUid 
void DeleteOverlayBox(  
   String^ overlayBoxInstanceUid 


The SOP Instance UID of the Image Overlay Box to be deleted. The method will fail if this is a null reference (Nothing in VB) or if an empty string is specified.


Two of the exceptions that can be thrown by this method are:

Exception Type Condition
DicomExceptionCode.PrintSCUFailureStatus The response of the Print SCP specifies a Failure status code.
DicomExceptionCode.PrintSCUClassNotSupported The Basic Print Image Overlay Box SOP Class is not supported on the Association.

The Image Overlay Box specified (by the SOP Instance UID) must be an exiting one. Refer to the method CreateOverlayBox for creating Image Overlay Boxes.

The method will not return until it receives the response of the Print SCP, or an error occurs. The method GetLastOperationStatus can be used to obtain the status code specified in the response of the Print SCP. If the method DeleteOverlayBox is successful, the specified Image Overlay Box was deleted successfully, with either a Success or Warning status code in the response of the Print SCP.

Once an Image Overlay Box is deleted, it cannot be referenced by Image Boxes.
