[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

The height of a bitmap image.

Namespace: System.Windows.Media.Imaging
Assembly: System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)


Public Property DecodePixelHeight As Integer
public int DecodePixelHeight { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System..::.Int32
Returns the number of pixels equal to the height of an image.


To preserve the aspect ratio of the image, we recommend that you typically use only one of the two pixel decoding settings (DecodePixelWidth or DecodePixelHeight).

If you specify BackgroundCreation in the CreateOptions of a BitmapImage, you have to specify only DecodePixelHeight. The DecodePixelWidth property is ignored when you specify BackgroundCreation.
