BitmapDecoder.Frames Property


Gets the content of an individual frame within a bitmap.

 virtual property System::Collections::ObjectModel::ReadOnlyCollection<System::Windows::Media::Imaging::BitmapFrame ^> ^ Frames { System::Collections::ObjectModel::ReadOnlyCollection<System::Windows::Media::Imaging::BitmapFrame ^> ^ get(); };
public virtual System.Collections.ObjectModel.ReadOnlyCollection<System.Windows.Media.Imaging.BitmapFrame> Frames { get; }
member this.Frames : System.Collections.ObjectModel.ReadOnlyCollection<System.Windows.Media.Imaging.BitmapFrame>
Public Overridable ReadOnly Property Frames As ReadOnlyCollection(Of BitmapFrame)

Property Value


An instance of BitmapFrame. This property has no default value.


The following code example demonstrates how to use a BitmapFrame as a BitmapSource.

// Open a Stream and decode a TIFF image
Stream imageStreamSource = new FileStream("tulipfarm.tif", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.Read);
TiffBitmapDecoder decoder = new TiffBitmapDecoder(imageStreamSource, BitmapCreateOptions.PreservePixelFormat, BitmapCacheOption.Default);
BitmapSource bitmapSource = decoder.Frames[0];

// Draw the Image
Image myImage1 = new Image();
myImage1.Source = bitmapSource;
myImage1.Stretch = Stretch.None;
myImage1.Margin = new Thickness(20);
' Open a Stream and decode a TIFF image
Dim imageStreamSource As New FileStream("tulipfarm.tif", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.Read)
Dim decoder As New TiffBitmapDecoder(imageStreamSource, BitmapCreateOptions.PreservePixelFormat, BitmapCacheOption.Default)
Dim bitmapSource As BitmapSource = decoder.Frames(0)

' Draw the Image
Dim myImage1 As New Image()
myImage1.Source = bitmapSource
myImage1.Stretch = Stretch.None
myImage1.Margin = New Thickness(20)


Only Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) and Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) images support more than one frame.

Any BitmapFrame objects returned by this property are frozen.
