Windows.UI.Xaml.Media.Imaging Windows.UI.Xaml.Media.Imaging Windows.UI.Xaml.Media.Imaging Windows.UI.Xaml.Media.Imaging Namespace


Provides types related to imaging and obtaining resources and source files for bitmap images.


BitmapImage BitmapImage BitmapImage BitmapImage

Provides the practical object source type for the Source and ImageSource properties. You can define a BitmapImage by using a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) that references an image source file, or by calling SetSourceAsync(IRandomAccessStream) and supplying a stream.

BitmapSource BitmapSource BitmapSource BitmapSource

Provides a source object for properties that use a bitmap-format image source.

DownloadProgressEventArgs DownloadProgressEventArgs DownloadProgressEventArgs DownloadProgressEventArgs

Provides event data for the DownloadProgress event.

RenderTargetBitmap RenderTargetBitmap RenderTargetBitmap RenderTargetBitmap

Represents an image source that can be populated with the combined contents of a XAML visual tree. See for some notable limitations on which XAML visuals can be captured in a RenderTargetBitmap.

SoftwareBitmapSource SoftwareBitmapSource SoftwareBitmapSource SoftwareBitmapSource

Provides a source object, backed by a SoftwareBitmap, for properties that use a bitmap-format image source.

SurfaceImageSource SurfaceImageSource SurfaceImageSource SurfaceImageSource

Provides Microsoft DirectX shared surfaces to draw into and then composes the bits into app content.

SvgImageSource SvgImageSource SvgImageSource SvgImageSource

Prerelease. Provides a source object for properties that use a Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) image source.

SvgImageSourceFailedEventArgs SvgImageSourceFailedEventArgs SvgImageSourceFailedEventArgs SvgImageSourceFailedEventArgs

Prerelease. Provides event data for the OpenFailed event.

SvgImageSourceOpenedEventArgs SvgImageSourceOpenedEventArgs SvgImageSourceOpenedEventArgs SvgImageSourceOpenedEventArgs

Prerelease. Provides event data for the Opened event.

VirtualSurfaceImageSource VirtualSurfaceImageSource VirtualSurfaceImageSource VirtualSurfaceImageSource

Extends SurfaceImageSource to support scenarios when the content is potentially larger than what can fit on screen and the content must be virtualized to render optimally.

WriteableBitmap WriteableBitmap WriteableBitmap WriteableBitmap

Provides a BitmapSource that can be written to and updated.

XamlRenderingBackgroundTask XamlRenderingBackgroundTask XamlRenderingBackgroundTask XamlRenderingBackgroundTask

Provides the ability to create a bitmap from a XAML tree in a background task.


BitmapCreateOptions BitmapCreateOptions BitmapCreateOptions BitmapCreateOptions

Specifies initialization options for a bitmap image.

DecodePixelType DecodePixelType DecodePixelType DecodePixelType

Provides values that can be used for decoding operations to optimize for logical versus physical pixels in the source image file.

SvgImageSourceLoadStatus SvgImageSourceLoadStatus SvgImageSourceLoadStatus SvgImageSourceLoadStatus

Prerelease. Defines constants that specify the result of loading an SvgImageSource.


DownloadProgressEventHandler DownloadProgressEventHandler DownloadProgressEventHandler DownloadProgressEventHandler

Represents the method that will handle the DownloadProgress event.
