BitmapCache BitmapCache BitmapCache BitmapCache Class


Represents the behavior of caching a visual element or tree of elements as bitmap surfaces.

Use any of these syntax forms to set UIElement.CacheMode to a value other than the null default. Don't do this routinely without testing first, see "Remarks" in UIElement.CacheMode.

<Canvas CacheMode="BitmapCache">
canvas1.CacheMode = new BitmapCache(); //canvas1 is an existing named element in UI
canvas1->CacheMode = ref new BitmapCache(); //canvas1 is an existing named element in UI


This class is infrastructure, and provides the underlying run-time value for the behavior when you specify CacheMode="BitmapCache" in XAML markup, or create a new BitmapCache in code to set UIElement.CacheMode.

GetValue(DependencyProperty) GetValue(DependencyProperty) GetValue(DependencyProperty) GetValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject.

ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty) ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty) ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty) ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set.
