BmpBitmapDecoder Class

Defines a decoder for bitmap (BMP) encoded images. 

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.Imaging
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
public sealed class BmpBitmapDecoder : BitmapDecoder
You cannot directly create an instance of this class in XAML.

The following examples show how to decode and encode a bitmap (BMP) image using the specific BmpBitmapDecoder and BmpBitmapEncoder objects. For the complete sample, see BMP Encoder and Decoder Sample.

This example demonstrates how to decode a BMP image using a BmpBitmapDecoder from a Uri.

// Open a Uri and decode a BMP image
Uri myUri = new Uri("tulipfarm.bmp", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute);
BmpBitmapDecoder decoder2 = new BmpBitmapDecoder(myUri, BitmapCreateOptions.PreservePixelFormat, BitmapCacheOption.Default);
BitmapSource bitmapSource2 = decoder2.Frames[0];

// Draw the Image
Image myImage2 = new Image();
myImage2.Source = bitmapSource2;
myImage2.Stretch = Stretch.None;
myImage2.Margin = new Thickness(20);

This example demonstrates how to encode a BitmapSource into a BMP image using a BmpBitmapEncoder.

int width = 128;
int height = width;
int stride = width / 8;
byte[] pixels = new byte[height * stride];

// Try creating a new image with a custom palette.
List<System.Windows.Media.Color> colors = new List<System.Windows.Media.Color>();
colors.Add(System.Windows.Media.Colors.Red);
colors.Add(System.Windows.Media.Colors.Blue);
colors.Add(System.Windows.Media.Colors.Green);
BitmapPalette myPalette = new BitmapPalette(colors);

// Creates a new empty image with the pre-defined palette
BitmapSource image = BitmapSource.Create(
    width,
    height,
    96,
    96,
    PixelFormats.Indexed1,
    myPalette,
    pixels,
    stride);

FileStream stream = new FileStream("new.bmp", FileMode.Create);
BmpBitmapEncoder encoder = new BmpBitmapEncoder();
TextBlock myTextBlock = new TextBlock();
myTextBlock.Text = "Codec Author is: " + encoder.CodecInfo.Author.ToString();
encoder.Frames.Add(BitmapFrame.Create(image));
encoder.Save(stream);
