L_LTDIC_API L_INT L_DicomSendAssociateRequest(hNet, hPDU)
A DICOM Network handle. This is the handle created by calling L_DicomCreateNet.
A DICOM Association handle. This is the handle created by calling L_DicomCreateAssociate.
|DICOM_SUCCESS||The function was successful.|
|>0||An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.|
Calling L_DicomSendAssociateRequest on an SCU generates a call to RECEIVEASSOCIATEREQUESTCALLBACK on the SCP. Within the callback function the SCP may accept or reject the Association request by calling L_DicomSendAssociateAccept or L_DicomSendAssociateReject.
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 Association.
