LDicomDS::GetSignature

#include "ltdic.h"

pDICOMELEMENT LDicomDS::GetSignature(pItem, uIndex)

Returns a pointer to the Digital Signatures Sequence Item that corresponds to the Digital Signature at the specified index.

Parameters

pDICOMELEMENT pItem

Pointer to a DICOMELEMENT structure that specifies the Item in which the required Digital Signature is located. Set this parameter to NULL if the Digital Signature is located in the main Data Set.

L_UINT32 uIndex

The index of the required Digital Signature. This should be a number from 0 to LDicomDS::GetSignaturesCount(pItem) minus 1.

Returns

Value Meaning
!NULL Pointer to the DICOMELEMENT structure that specifies the Digital Signatures Sequence Item which corresponds to the required Digital Signature.
NULL The specified index is invalid.

Comments

For each Digital Signature in the main Data Set or in an Item of a Sequence of Items, there should be a corresponding Item under the Digital Signatures Sequence (FFFA,FFFA) located in the main Data Set or in the Item. This function can be used to obtain a pointer to that Digital Signatures Sequence Item.

Along with this function, the function LDicomDS::GetSignaturesCount can be used to enumerate the Digital Signatures in the main Data Set or in an Item of a Sequence of Items. Once a pointer to the Digital Signatures Sequence Item is obtained, the following functions can be used to verify, delete, or get information about the Digital Signature:

LDicomDS::VerifySignature

LDicomDS::DeleteSignature

LDicomDS::GetSignatureUID

LDicomDS::GetSignatureDateTime

LDicomDS::GetSignedElementsCount

LDicomDS::GetSignedElement

LDicomDS::GetMacTransferSyntax

LDicomDS::GetMacAlgorithm

LDicomDS::SaveCertificate

You can also use the function LDicomDS::FindSignature to search the whole Data Set for a specific Digital Signature.

   for (L_UINT32 i = 0; i < uSignaturesCount; i++)

      // function ExamineSignature
