Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.Imaging
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public virtual IList<BitmapFrame> Frames { get; set; }
You cannot use this property in Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML). 

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IList<BitmapFrame>
A collection of BitmapFrame objects within the image.


The BitmapFrame value that is passed to the encoder is null.

Only Tagged Image File Format (TIFF), Graphics Interchange Format (GIF), and Microsoft Windows Media Photo images support more than one frame. Attempts to add additional frames to formats that do not support them will result in only the first frame being encoded.

The following example shows how to add a frame to an encoder.

FileStream stream = new FileStream("empty.tif", FileMode.Create);
TiffBitmapEncoder encoder = new TiffBitmapEncoder();
TextBlock myTextBlock = new TextBlock();
myTextBlock.Text = "Codec Author is: " + encoder.CodecInfo.Author.ToString();
