BitmapData.Scan0 BitmapData.Scan0 BitmapData.Scan0 BitmapData.Scan0 Property

Definition

Gets or sets the address of the first pixel data in the bitmap. This can also be thought of as the first scan line in the bitmap.

public:
 property IntPtr Scan0 { IntPtr get(); void set(IntPtr value); };
[get: System.Runtime.TargetedPatchingOptOut("Performance critical to inline this type of method across NGen image boundaries")]
[set: System.Runtime.TargetedPatchingOptOut("Performance critical to inline this type of method across NGen image boundaries")]
public IntPtr Scan0 { get; set; }
member this.Scan0 : nativeint with get, set
Public Property Scan0 As IntPtr
Property Value

The address of the first pixel data in the bitmap.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the PixelFormat, Height, Width, and Scan0 properties; the LockBits and UnlockBits methods; and the ImageLockMode enumeration. This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. To run this example, paste it into a form and handle the form's Paint event by calling the LockUnlockBitsExample method, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

Note

The following example code was created for use with an image with the Format24bppRgb format.

void LockUnlockBitsExample( PaintEventArgs^ e )
{
   // Create a new bitmap.
   Bitmap^ bmp = gcnew Bitmap( "c:\\fakePhoto.jpg" );

   // Lock the bitmap's bits.  
   Rectangle rect = Rectangle(0,0,bmp->Width,bmp->Height);
   System::Drawing::Imaging::BitmapData^ bmpData = bmp->LockBits( rect, System::Drawing::Imaging::ImageLockMode::ReadWrite, bmp->PixelFormat );

   // Get the address of the first line.
   IntPtr ptr = bmpData->Scan0;

   // Declare an array to hold the bytes of the bitmap.
   // This code is specific to a bitmap with 24 bits per pixels.
   int bytes = Math::Abs(bmpData->Stride) * bmp->Height;
   array<Byte>^rgbValues = gcnew array<Byte>(bytes);

   // Copy the RGB values into the array.
   System::Runtime::InteropServices::Marshal::Copy( ptr, rgbValues, 0, bytes );

   // Set every third value to 255.  
   for ( int counter = 2; counter < rgbValues->Length; counter += 3 )
      rgbValues[ counter ] = 255;

   // Copy the RGB values back to the bitmap
   System::Runtime::InteropServices::Marshal::Copy( rgbValues, 0, ptr, bytes );

   // Unlock the bits.
   bmp->UnlockBits( bmpData );

   // Draw the modified image.
   e->Graphics->DrawImage( bmp, 0, 150 );
}
    private void LockUnlockBitsExample(PaintEventArgs e)
        {

            // Create a new bitmap.

            System.Drawing.Imaging.BitmapData bmpData =
                bmp.LockBits(rect, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageLockMode.ReadWrite,
                bmp.PixelFormat);

            // Get the address of the first line.
            IntPtr ptr = bmpData.Scan0;

            // Declare an array to hold the bytes of the bitmap.

            // Set every third value to 255. A 24bpp bitmap will look red.  
            for (int counter = 2; counter < rgbValues.Length; counter += 3)
                rgbValues[counter] = 255;

            // Copy the RGB values back to the bitmap
            System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.Copy(rgbValues, 0, ptr, bytes);

            // Unlock the bits.
            bmp.UnlockBits(bmpData);

            // Draw the modified image.
