Need to add a dicom viewer in another solution all in vb. Help would be tremendously appreciated

What I have tried:

I've tried to convert

You can try this C# library: openDICOM.NET[^]
Sorry about that, it seems to be a mess without decent documentation or even a .sln to get you started.
You already found this CodeProject C# example, which works (but not for all pictures)
DICOM Image Viewer[^]

To convert it to VB.NET, use this c# converter: Convert .NET - A multipurpose conversion and developer tool[^] But apparently the translation to VB is not perfect, so some work still needs to be done ...

I've tried as you suggested. Like the code translator. Still no success getting this code to work

Any help would be appreciated

I set the start Form to MainForm in the project settings and I tried your solution with some sample files from but it does not work as far as I can see. As I have no experience with Dicom I'm afraid I can not be of much help to you, sorry !

Too bad. Having a solution within vb for dicom reading (and eventually writing) would be tremendously helpful. If there are any solutions, please let me know

Well, you can mix VB and C# projects in your solution, you could put the relevant C# code in a separate DLL, it's ugly but it is a possibility :)
