The class provides the necessary storage members and methods to retrieve all pertinent information about the installed image encoders and decoders (called codecs). Not inheritable.
Assembly: System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Clsid||Gets or sets a Guid structure that contains a GUID that identifies a specific codec.|
|CodecName||Gets or sets a string that contains the name of the codec.|
|DllName||Gets or sets string that contains the path name of the DLL that holds the codec. If the codec is not in a DLL, this pointer is null.|
|FilenameExtension||Gets or sets string that contains the file name extension(s) used in the codec. The extensions are separated by semicolons.|
|Flags||Gets or sets 32-bit value used to store additional information about the codec. This property returns a combination of flags from the ImageCodecFlags enumeration.|
|FormatDescription||Gets or sets a string that describes the codec's file format.|
|FormatID||Gets or sets a Guid structure that contains a GUID that identifies the codec's format.|
|MimeType||Gets or sets a string that contains the codec's Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) type.|
|SignatureMasks||Gets or sets a two dimensional array of bytes that can be used as a filter.|
|SignaturePatterns||Gets or sets a two dimensional array of bytes that represents the signature of the codec.|
|Version||Gets or sets the version number of the codec.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetImageDecoders||Returns an array of objects that contain information about the image decoders built into GDI+.|
|GetImageEncoders||Returns an array of objects that contain information about the image encoders built into GDI+.|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
