GifBitmapEncoder Class

Defines an encoder that is used to encode Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) images.

Namespace: System.Windows.Media.Imaging
Assembly: PresentationCore (in presentationcore.dll)
XML Namespace:  http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation

public sealed class GifBitmapEncoder : BitmapEncoder
public final class GifBitmapEncoder extends BitmapEncoder
public final class GifBitmapEncoder extends BitmapEncoder
<GifBitmapEncoder .../>

Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) images do not support global preview, global thumbnails, global metadata, frame level thumbnails, or frame level metadata. Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) images do support multiple frames.

Encoding does not work in partial trust. See the Windows Presentation Foundation Partial Trust Programming topic for information on partial trust.

The following example demonstrates how to use the GifBitmapEncoder to encode a new bitmap image.

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);
