EncoderParameters Constructors

Definition

Initializes a new instance of the EncoderParameters class that can contain the specified number of EncoderParameter objects.

Overloads

EncoderParameters()

Initializes a new instance of the EncoderParameters class that can contain one EncoderParameter object.

EncoderParameters(Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the EncoderParameters class that can contain the specified number of EncoderParameter objects.

EncoderParameters()

Initializes a new instance of the EncoderParameters class that can contain one EncoderParameter object.

public:
 EncoderParameters();
public EncoderParameters ();
Public Sub New ()

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to create and use a EncoderParameters object. To run this example, paste the code into a Windows Form and call the VaryQualityLevel method from the form's constructor. This example requires an image file named TestPhoto.jpg located at c:\.

private void VaryQualityLevel()
{
    // Get a bitmap.
    Bitmap bmp1 = new Bitmap(@"c:\TestPhoto.jpg");
    ImageCodecInfo jpgEncoder = GetEncoder(ImageFormat.Jpeg);

    // Create an Encoder object based on the GUID
    // for the Quality parameter category.
    System.Drawing.Imaging.Encoder myEncoder =
        System.Drawing.Imaging.Encoder.Quality;

    // 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.
    EncoderParameters myEncoderParameters = new EncoderParameters(1);

    EncoderParameter myEncoderParameter = new EncoderParameter(myEncoder, 50L);
    myEncoderParameters.Param[0] = myEncoderParameter;
    bmp1.Save(@"c:\TestPhotoQualityFifty.jpg", jpgEncoder, myEncoderParameters);

    myEncoderParameter = new EncoderParameter(myEncoder, 100L);
    myEncoderParameters.Param[0] = myEncoderParameter;
    bmp1.Save(@"c:\TestPhotoQualityHundred.jpg", jpgEncoder, myEncoderParameters);

    // Save the bitmap as a JPG file with zero quality level compression.
    myEncoderParameter = new EncoderParameter(myEncoder, 0L);
    myEncoderParameters.Param[0] = myEncoderParameter;
    bmp1.Save(@"c:\TestPhotoQualityZero.jpg", jpgEncoder, myEncoderParameters);
}
Private Sub VaryQualityLevel()
    ' Get a bitmap.
    Dim bmp1 As New Bitmap("c:\TestPhoto.jpg")
    Dim jpgEncoder As ImageCodecInfo = GetEncoder(ImageFormat.Jpeg)

    ' Create an Encoder object based on the GUID
    ' for the Quality parameter category.
    Dim myEncoder As System.Drawing.Imaging.Encoder = System.Drawing.Imaging.Encoder.Quality

    ' 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.
    Dim myEncoderParameters As New EncoderParameters(1)

    Dim myEncoderParameter As New EncoderParameter(myEncoder, 50&)
    myEncoderParameters.Param(0) = myEncoderParameter
    bmp1.Save("c:\TestPhotoQualityFifty.jpg", jpgEncoder, myEncoderParameters)

    myEncoderParameter = New EncoderParameter(myEncoder, 100&)
    myEncoderParameters.Param(0) = myEncoderParameter
    bmp1.Save("c:\TestPhotoQualityHundred.jpg", jpgEncoder, myEncoderParameters)

    ' Save the bitmap as a JPG file with zero quality level compression.
    myEncoderParameter = New EncoderParameter(myEncoder, 0&)
    myEncoderParameters.Param(0) = myEncoderParameter
    bmp1.Save("c:\TestPhotoQualityZero.jpg", jpgEncoder, myEncoderParameters)

End Sub

private ImageCodecInfo GetEncoder(ImageFormat format)
{
    ImageCodecInfo[] codecs = ImageCodecInfo.GetImageEncoders();

    foreach (ImageCodecInfo codec in codecs)
    {
        if (codec.FormatID == format.Guid)
        {
            return codec;
        }
    }
    
    return null;
}
Private Function GetEncoder(ByVal format As ImageFormat) As ImageCodecInfo

    Dim codecs As ImageCodecInfo() = ImageCodecInfo.GetImageEncoders()

    Dim codec As ImageCodecInfo
    For Each codec In codecs
        If codec.FormatID = format.Guid Then
            Return codec
        End If
    Next codec
    Return Nothing

End Function

Remarks

Some of the Save and SaveAdd methods receive an EncoderParameters object as an argument. The GetEncoderParameterList method returns an EncoderParameters object.

EncoderParameters(Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the EncoderParameters class that can contain the specified number of EncoderParameter objects.

public:
 EncoderParameters(int count);
public EncoderParameters (int count);
new System.Drawing.Imaging.EncoderParameters : int -> System.Drawing.Imaging.EncoderParameters
Public Sub New (count As Integer)

Parameters

count
Int32

An integer that specifies the number of EncoderParameter objects that the EncoderParameters object can contain.
