Hello, I have a limited experience with programming and I would like some help/advice with a specific software package I have to use at work... I have no idea what version of VB i'm using or weather it'
s a stripped down version. From what I can tell it has some of it's own functions and specific object variables.
I'm not sure how helpful it will be to give you an overview of how I use this software for scanning patients so I will write a brief paragraph below which you may or may not choose to skip over.
I work in medical imaging (Nuclear Medicine specifically) and our GE imaging equipment uses a software package called Xeleris for displaying and analyzing diagnostic imaging. The software consists of a collection of "protocols" which we use for scanning patient's bones, heart, kidneys and all kinds of other things. If I did a Heart scan on a patient I would select the scan data from a list in the patient database and then run it through the "heart protocol" which would then allow me to display certain images from certain angles as well as graphs and quantitative analysis. There are two types of protocol we use. 1: the ones which come standard, or 2: the ones which have been custom made by application experts to suit the needs of my specific department. I have figured out that I can also customise my own protocols if I learn a bit of VB and I have successively made a few simple ones which my colleagues and I use frequently. The funny thing is: when I look at the custom protocols which were provided to us by the applications experts I can tell that they don't have a very strong knowledge of VB; they use inefficient and awkward coding and don't really follow what I consider good practice.
The problem/curiosity I'm having at the moment is:
I'm not sure if I have provided enough information here...
'this doesn't work - the img() array is declared at the start of the code outside this subroutine. the objects are declared in a function before this sub
For i = 1 To 3
display img(i), ("cell" &(i)) 'Ive tried leaving out the space before the &
'i use this instead
display img(1), "cell1"
display img(2), "cell2"
display img(3), "cell3"
'this section which comes straight after works fine
Dim vp(4) As viewport
For i = 1 to 4
Set vp(i) = GetViewport("cell" & (i))
vp(i).LabelFormat - none_format
vp(i).color = USER_DEFINED
vp(i).zoom = 2
vp(i).WindowMax = 280
vp(i).pany = 6
