BitmapEffect is an abstract type, therefore the XAML usage requires an implemented derived class of BitmapEffect, such as OuterGlowBitmapEffect. Note that one implemented derived class is a collection type that allows you to specify more than one sequential BitmapEffect, using a nested tag syntax.

No existing derived class of BitmapEffect supports a type converter, so the XAML syntax that you use for this property is generally property element syntax.

The following example sets a bitmap effect, using BlurBitmapEffect.

// Get a reference to the Button.
Button myButton = (Button)sender;

// Initialize a new BlurBitmapEffect that will be applied
// to the Button.
BlurBitmapEffect myBlurEffect = new BlurBitmapEffect();

// Set the Radius property of the blur. This determines how 
// blurry the effect will be. The larger the radius, the more
// blurring. 
myBlurEffect.Radius = 10;

// Set the KernelType property of the blur. A KernalType of "Box"
// creates less blur than the Gaussian kernal type.
myBlurEffect.KernelType = KernelType.Box;

// Apply the bitmap effect to the Button.
myButton.BitmapEffect = myBlurEffect;
