[SerializableAttribute] 
[TypeConverterAttribute(typeof(PixelFormatConverter))] 
public struct PixelFormat : IEquatable<PixelFormat>
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute TypeConverterAttribute(System.Windows.Media.PixelFormatConverter) */ 
public final class PixelFormat extends ValueType implements IEquatable<PixelFormat>
<object property="pixelFormat"/>
 pixelFormat  One of the predefined pixel formats defined by the PixelFormats class. 

The following example shows how to create a PixelFormat and find the value of its properties.

public PixelFormat createPixelFormat()
{
    // Create a PixelFormat object.
    PixelFormat myPixelFormat = new PixelFormat();
    
    // Make this PixelFormat a Gray32Float pixel format.
    myPixelFormat = PixelFormats.Gray32Float;

    // Get the number of bits-per-pixel for this format. Because
    // the format is "Gray32Float", the float value returned will be 32.
    int bpp = myPixelFormat.BitsPerPixel;

    // Get the collection of masks associated with this format.
    IList<PixelFormatChannelMask> myChannelMaskCollection = myPixelFormat.Masks;

    // Capture the mask info in a string.
    String stringOfValues = " ";
    foreach (PixelFormatChannelMask myMask in myChannelMaskCollection)
    {
        IList<byte> myBytesCollection = myMask.Mask;
        foreach (byte myByte in myBytesCollection)
        {
            stringOfValues = stringOfValues + myByte.ToString();
        }
    }

    // Return the PixelFormat which, for example, could be 
    // used to set the pixel format of a bitmap by using it to set
    // the DestinationFormat of a FormatConvertedBitmap.
    return myPixelFormat;
}
