GifBitmapDecoder Class

Defines a decoder for Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) encoded images.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.Imaging
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public sealed class GifBitmapDecoder : BitmapDecoder
You cannot directly create an instance of this class in XAML.

The following examples show how to decode and encode a Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) image using the specific GifBitmapDecoder and GifBitmapEncoder objects. For the complete sample, see GIF Encoder and Decoder Sample

This example demonstrates how to decode a GIF image using a GifBitmapDecoder from a FileStream.

// Open a Stream and decode a GIF image
Stream imageStreamSource = new FileStream("tulipfarm.gif", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.Read);
GifBitmapDecoder decoder = new GifBitmapDecoder(imageStreamSource, BitmapCreateOptions.PreservePixelFormat, BitmapCacheOption.Default);
BitmapSource bitmapSource = decoder.Frames[0];

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

This example demonstrates how to encode a BitmapSource into a GIF image using a GifBitmapEncoder.

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

// Define the image palette
BitmapPalette myPalette = BitmapPalettes.WebPalette;

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