Public NotInheritable Class BitmapImage _ Inherits BitmapSource
public sealed class BitmapImage : BitmapSource
The BitmapImage type exposes the following members.
|BitmapImage()()()||Initializes a new instance of the BitmapImage class.|
|BitmapImage(Uri)||Initializes a new instance of the BitmapImage class, using the supplied URI.|
|CreateOptions||Gets or sets the BitmapCreateOptions for a BitmapImage.|
|DecodePixelHeight||The height of a bitmap image.|
|DecodePixelType||Gets or sets the type of the pixel.|
|DecodePixelWidth||The width of a bitmap image.|
|Dispatcher||Gets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|PixelHeight||Gets the height of the bitmap in pixels. (Inherited from BitmapSource.)|
|PixelWidth||Gets the width of the bitmap in pixels. (Inherited from BitmapSource.)|
|UriSource||Gets or sets the URI of the graphics source file that generated this BitmapImage.|
|CheckAccess||Determines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ClearValue||Clears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetAnimationBaseValue||Returns any base value established for a Windows Phone dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetValue||Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ReadLocalValue||Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|SetSource||Sets the source of the BitmapSource. (Inherited from BitmapSource.)|
|SetValue||Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|DownloadProgress||Occurs when a significant change has occurred in the download progress of the BitmapImage content.|
|ImageFailed||Occurs when there is an error associated with image retrieval or format.|
|ImageOpened||Occurs when the image source is downloaded and decoded with no failure. You can use this event to determine the size of an image before rendering it.|
|CreateOptionsProperty||Identifies the CreateOptions dependency property.|
|DecodePixelHeightProperty||Identifies the DecodePixelHeight dependency property.|
|DecodePixelTypeProperty||Identifies the DecodePixelType dependency property.|
|DecodePixelWidthProperty||Identifies the DecodePixelWidth dependency property.|
|UriSourceProperty||Identifies the UriSource dependency property.|
The BitmapImage can be used to reference images in the JPEG and PNG file formats.
There are two ways to specify the graphics content for a BitmapImage: by URI, or by stream. You can set with either of these, and the last technique used will specify the content.
XAML usage for BitmapImage as an object element is uncommon, because it would only be appropriate for setting a BitmapImage as the object element within a property element usage for setting Image..::.Source. More typically you would use Image and use the URI to set Image..::.Source as an attribute.
