Encoder.ColorDepth Encoder.ColorDepth Encoder.ColorDepth Encoder.ColorDepth Field

Definition

An Encoder object that is initialized with the globally unique identifier for the color depth parameter category.

 staticval mutable ColorDepth : System.Drawing.Imaging.Encoder
Public Shared ReadOnly ColorDepth As Encoder 

Field Value

Examples

The following example creates a Bitmap object from a BMP file. The code saves the image as a TIFF file that has a color depth of 24 bits per pixel.

#using <System.Drawing.dll>

using namespace System;

   // Create a Bitmap object based on a BMP file.
   myBitmap = gcnew Bitmap( "C:\\Documents and Settings\\All Users\\Documents\\My Music\\music.bmp" );
   
   // Get an ImageCodecInfo object that represents the TIFF codec.
   myImageCodecInfo = GetEncoderInfo( "image/tiff" );
   
   // Create an Encoder object based on the GUID
   // for the ColorDepth parameter category.
   myEncoder = Encoder::ColorDepth;
   
   // Create an EncoderParameters object.
   // An EncoderParameters object has an array of EncoderParameter
   // objects. In this case, there is only one
   // EncoderParameter object in the array.

Remarks

When you pass a parameter to an image encoder, the parameter is encapsulated in an EncoderParameter object. One of the fields of the EncoderParameter object is a GUID that specifies the category of the parameter. Use the static fields of the Encoder class to retrieve an Encoder that contains parameters of the desired category.

The image encoders that are built into GDI+ receive parameters that belong to several categories. The following table lists all the categories and the GUID associated with each category.
