CroppedBitmap.EndInit Method

Signals the end of the CroppedBitmap initialization.

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

public void EndInit()




The Source property is null.


The EndInit method is called without first calling BeginInit.

Property initialization must be done between BeginInit and EndInit calls. Once the CroppedBitmap has been initialized, property changes are ignored.

The following example demonstrates how to initialize a CroppedBitmap with a set of properties by using the BeginInit and EndInit methods.

            ///// this BitmapImage as a source for other BitmapSource objects.    /////

            BitmapImage myBitmapImage = new BitmapImage();

            // BitmapSource objects like BitmapImage can only have their properties 
            // changed within a BeginInit/EndInit block.
            myBitmapImage.UriSource = new Uri(@"sampleImages/WaterLilies.jpg",UriKind.Relative);

            // To save significant application memory, set the DecodePixelWidth or   
            // DecodePixelHeight of the BitmapImage value of the image source to the desired  
            // height or width of the rendered image. If you don't do this, the application will  
            // cache the image as though it were rendered as its normal size rather then just  
            // the size that is displayed. 
            // Note: In order to preserve aspect ratio, set DecodePixelWidth 
            // or DecodePixelHeight but not both.
            myBitmapImage.DecodePixelWidth = 200;

            ////////// Crop the BitmapSource ////////////

            // which is cropped.                                                
            // Note: New BitmapSource does not cache. It is always pulled when required.

            CroppedBitmap myCroppedBitmap = new CroppedBitmap();

            // BitmapSource objects like CroppedBitmap can only have their properties 
            // changed within a BeginInit/EndInit block.

            // Crop the image to the rectangular area defined below.  
            // The image is cropped to 80 pixels less in width and 60 less  
            // in height then the original source.
            myCroppedBitmap.SourceRect = new Int32Rect(0,0,(int)myBitmapImage.Width-80, (int)myBitmapImage.Height-60);
