BitmapImage.CacheOption BitmapImage.CacheOption BitmapImage.CacheOption BitmapImage.CacheOption Property


Gets or sets the BitmapCacheOption to use for this instance of BitmapImage.

 property System::Windows::Media::Imaging::BitmapCacheOption CacheOption { System::Windows::Media::Imaging::BitmapCacheOption get(); void set(System::Windows::Media::Imaging::BitmapCacheOption value); };
public System.Windows.Media.Imaging.BitmapCacheOption CacheOption { get; set; }
member this.CacheOption : System.Windows.Media.Imaging.BitmapCacheOption with get, set
Public Property CacheOption As BitmapCacheOption
Property Value


The following code example demonstrates how to set the CacheOption of a BitmapImage by using code.

// Define a BitmapImage.
Image myImage = new Image();
BitmapImage bi = new BitmapImage();

// Begin initialization.

// Set properties.
bi.CacheOption = BitmapCacheOption.OnDemand;
bi.CreateOptions = BitmapCreateOptions.DelayCreation;
bi.DecodePixelHeight = 125;
bi.DecodePixelWidth = 125;
bi.Rotation = Rotation.Rotate90;
bi.UriSource = new Uri("smiley.png", UriKind.Relative);

// End initialization.
myImage.Source = bi;
myImage.Stretch = Stretch.None;
myImage.Margin = new Thickness(5);
' Define a BitmapImage.
Dim myImage As New Image()
Dim bi As New BitmapImage()

' Begin initialization.

' Set properties.
bi.CacheOption = BitmapCacheOption.OnDemand
bi.CreateOptions = BitmapCreateOptions.DelayCreation
bi.DecodePixelHeight = 125
bi.DecodePixelWidth = 125
bi.Rotation = Rotation.Rotate90
bi.UriSource = New Uri("smiley.png", UriKind.Relative)

' End initialization.
myImage.Source = bi
myImage.Stretch = Stretch.None
myImage.Margin = New Thickness(5)


Set the CacheOption to BitmapCacheOption.OnLoad if you wish to close a stream used to create the BitmapImage. The default OnDemand cache option retains access to the stream until the image is needed, and cleanup is handled by the garbage collector.
