Settings.MaxFrameRate Property

Silverlight

Gets or sets the maximum number of frames to render per second.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Interop
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)

'Declaration
Public Property MaxFrameRate As Integer

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
An integer value that specifies the maximum number of frames to render per second. The default value is 60.

The actual frame rate that Silverlight content renders depends on system load performance. You can specify the range using the MaxFrameRate property:

  • The minimum frame rate is 1.

  • The maximum frame rate is platform-dependent. A value of approximately 60 frames-per-second should be reliable on all platforms. The 1000 and 30000 frames-per-second range is where the maximum frame rate could differ between platforms.

Note that there is a mismatch in naming between the parameter in createObject/createObjectEx and the runtime property. The instantiation parameter is named framerate, this runtime property is named MaxFrameRate, but these are both referring to the same value.

You can display a frame rate counter for diagnostic purposes. Fore more information, see EnableFrameRateCounter.

The following code example demonstrates how to use this property.


' The Host object, which represents the host Silverlight plug-in. 
Dim host As System.Windows.Interop.SilverlightHost = _
    Application.Current.Host

' The following code demonstrates how to use the Host object 
' to access other APIs in the System.Windows.Interop namespace. 

' The IsVersionSupported method. This method is useful when 
' you want to implement an upgrade experience in managed code. 
Dim isSupported As Boolean = host.IsVersionSupported("2.0.30908.0")

' Read-only properties of the Host object. 
Dim pluginBackground As System.Windows.Media.Color = host.Background
Dim loaded As Boolean = host.IsLoaded
Dim source As Uri = host.Source

' The Settings object, which represents Web browser settings. 
Dim settings As System.Windows.Interop.Settings = host.Settings

' Read/write properties of the Settings object. 
settings.EnableFrameRateCounter = True
settings.EnableRedrawRegions = True
settings.MaxFrameRate = 60

' Read-only properties of the Settings object. 
Dim windowless As Boolean = settings.Windowless
Dim htmlAccessEnabled As Boolean = settings.EnableHTMLAccess

' The Content object, which represents the plug-in display area. 
Dim content As System.Windows.Interop.Content = host.Content

' The read/write IsFullScreen property of the Content object. 
' See also the Content.FullScreenChanged event. 
Dim isFullScreen As Boolean = content.IsFullScreen

' Read-only properties of the Content object. These properties do 
' not contain meaningful values until after the Content.Resized 
' event occurs for the first time. 
Dim actualWidth As Double = content.ActualWidth
Dim actualHeight As Double = content.ActualHeight
