Examples

The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code performs the following actions:

  1. Opens an Image and draws it to the screen.

  2. Creates an ImageAttributes object and sets its threshold by using the SetThreshold method.

  3. Draws the image to the screen by using the threshold of the ImageAttributes object.

void SetThresholdExample( PaintEventArgs^ e )
{
   // Open an Image file, and draw it to the screen.
   Image^ myImage = Image::FromFile( "Camera.jpg" );
   e->Graphics->DrawImage( myImage, 20, 20 );

   // Create an ImageAttributes object, and set its color threshold.
   ImageAttributes^ imageAttr = gcnew ImageAttributes;
   imageAttr->SetThreshold( 0.7f );

   // Draw the image with the colors bifurcated.
   Rectangle rect = Rectangle(300,20,200,200);
   e->Graphics->DrawImage( myImage, rect, 0, 0, 200, 200, GraphicsUnit::Pixel, imageAttr );
}
private void SetThresholdExample(PaintEventArgs e)
{
             
    // Open an Image file, and draw it to the screen.
    Image myImage = Image.FromFile("Camera.jpg");
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(myImage, 20, 20);
             
    // Create an ImageAttributes object, and set its color threshold.
    ImageAttributes imageAttr = new ImageAttributes();
    imageAttr.SetThreshold(0.7f);
             
    // Draw the image with the colors bifurcated.
    Rectangle rect = new Rectangle(300, 20, 200, 200);
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(myImage, rect, 0, 0, 200, 200, 
        GraphicsUnit.Pixel, imageAttr);    
}
Public Sub SetThresholdExample(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Open an Image file, and draw it to the screen.
    Dim myImage As Image = Image.FromFile("Camera.jpg")
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(myImage, 20, 20)

    ' Create an ImageAttributes object, and set its color threshold.
    Dim imageAttr As New ImageAttributes
    imageAttr.SetThreshold(0.7F)

    ' Draw the image with the colors bifurcated.
    Dim rect As New Rectangle(300, 20, 200, 200)
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(myImage, rect, 0, 0, 200, 200, _
    GraphicsUnit.Pixel, imageAttr)
End Sub

Remarks

The threshold is a value from 0 through 1 that specifies a cutoff point for each color component. For example, suppose the threshold is set to 0.7, and suppose you are rendering a color whose red, green, and blue components are 230, 50, and 220, respectively. The red component (230) is greater than 0.7x255, so the red component will be changed to 255 (full intensity). The green component (50) is less than 0.7x255, so the green component will be changed to 0. The blue component (220) is greater than 0.7x255, so the blue component will be changed to 255.

An ImageAttributes object maintains color and grayscale settings for five adjustment categories: default, bitmap, brush, pen, and text. For example, you can specify a threshold for the default category, a threshold for the bitmap category, and still a different threshold for the pen category.

The default color-adjustment and grayscale-adjustment settings apply to all categories that do not have adjustment settings of their own. For example, if you never specify any adjustment settings for the pen category, the default settings apply to the pen category.

SetThreshold(Single, ColorAdjustType) SetThreshold(Single, ColorAdjustType) SetThreshold(Single, ColorAdjustType) SetThreshold(Single, ColorAdjustType)

Sets the threshold (transparency range) for a specified category.

public:
 void SetThreshold(float threshold, System::Drawing::Imaging::ColorAdjustType type);
public void SetThreshold (float threshold, System.Drawing.Imaging.ColorAdjustType type);
member this.SetThreshold : single * System.Drawing.Imaging.ColorAdjustType -> unit
Public Sub SetThreshold (threshold As Single, type As ColorAdjustType)

Parameters

threshold
Single Single Single Single

A threshold value from 0.0 to 1.0 that is used as a breakpoint to sort colors that will be mapped to either a maximum or a minimum value.

type
ColorAdjustType ColorAdjustType ColorAdjustType ColorAdjustType

An element of ColorAdjustType that specifies the category for which the color threshold is set.

Remarks

The threshold is a value from 0 through 1 that specifies a cutoff point for each color component. For example, suppose the threshold is set to 0.7, and suppose you are rendering a color whose red, green, and blue components are 230, 50, and 220, respectively. The red component (230) is greater than 0.7x255, so the red component will be changed to 255 (full intensity). The green component (50) is less than 0.7x255, so the green component will be changed to 0. The blue component (220) is greater than 0.7x255, so the blue component will be changed to 255.

An ImageAttributes object maintains color and grayscale settings for five adjustment categories: default, bitmap, brush, pen, and text. For example, you can specify a threshold for the default category, a threshold for the bitmap category, and still a different threshold for the pen category.

The default color-adjustment and grayscale-adjustment settings apply to all categories that do not have adjustment settings of their own. For example, if you never specify any adjustment settings for the pen category, the default settings apply to the pen category.

As soon as you specify a color-adjustment or grayscale-adjustment setting for a certain category, the default adjustment settings no longer apply to that category. For example, suppose you specify a collection of adjustment settings for the default category. If you set the threshold for the pen category by passing Pen to the SetThreshold method, none of the default adjustment settings will apply to pens.
