Hello,

After getting distracted from my dicom projects, I am now picking it up again. I am tinkering with simply making a program that opens a DICOM file fromt he filesystem and displays it. Essentially, just a "Hello World" application of DICOM display - no selecting the file, etc etc.

I am having a problem with a DicomException being thrown in the following code:

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
DicomEngine.Startup();

//open file
string file = "C:\\dcm\\test.dcm";
DicomDataSet ds = new DicomDataSet(file);

//get image, and set it as the displayed image
//theViewer is a RasterImageViewer WinForm control
RasterImage image;
image = ds.GetImage(null, 0, 0, RasterByteOrder.Gray, DicomGetImageFlags.None);
theViewer.Image = image;

DicomEngine.Shutdown();
}




I get a DicomException for the GetImage call. Here is the Stack Trace:


at Leadtools.Dicom.DicomException.CheckErrorCode(Int32 code)

Any thoughts, ideas, etc? Am I doing something obviously wrong? FYI, the DICOM file is valid, displays in any DICOM viewer, and is readable on the file system.

Thank you,


Will

Naa, I just like my name alot.  Sorry for the technical difficulties, I know I wrote something, how embarrasing =).

Anyways, what was the error message as well?  The stack trace didn't have enough information to give an idea as to what went wrong.  The code looks fine at first glance.

Does the same code work for other images such as the ones that come with the toolkit? 

Can you load the same image (C:\\dcm\\test.dcm") with any of the demos?

No problem about the blank message :-) I'm personally famous for telling people to look at email attachments... that I forgot to attach.

I was able to open the DICOM file flawlessly in "DICOM C# Main 32 Bit" demo.

I tried testing my code witht he provided file MR.DCM, and had the same problem.



Here is the full detail of the exception:

If there is any other info you want me to get, please just let me know.


Thanks so much for looking into this with me.

I tested this out and discovered that the problem is occuring because the DicomDataSet constructor is being used improperly.  In order to do its work, the DicomDataSet class needs to write out temporary files.  There are two overloads for the constructor.  The first takes no parameters and it will use the default temp directory (c:\documents and settings\[username]\local settings\temp\) and the second takes a string which tells the engine where to write the temporary files.  This string should be a path, not a file.  Since you specified a file, the engine wrote it's temporary files to that file which corrupted and eventually deleted the file.  
 
If you use either the default constructor or use a directory with the second constructor, your code will work:
 
DicomEngine.Startup();
 
//open file
string file = @"C:\Program Files\LEAD Technologies, Inc\LEADTOOLS 15\Images\MR.DCM";
string path = @"D:\junk folder\";
//DicomDataSet ds = new DicomDataSet(); //this will use the default temp directory
DicomDataSet ds = new DicomDataSet(path); //this will use path as the temp directory
 
//Load DICOM File
ds.Load(file, DicomDataSetLoadFlags.None);
 
//get image, and set it as the displayed image
//theViewer is a RasterImageViewer WinForm control
RasterImage image;
image = ds.GetImage(null, 0, 0, RasterByteOrder.Gray, DicomGetImageFlags.None);
theViewer.Image = image;
 
DicomEngine.Shutdown();
