InPlaceBitmapMetadataWriter.TrySave Method

Gets a value that indicates whether image metadata can be saved successfully.

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

public bool TrySave()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if bitmap metadata can be written successfully; otherwise, false.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the TrySave method to determine whether metadata can be written successfully to a Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) image.

Stream pngStream = new System.IO.FileStream("smiley.png", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.ReadWrite, FileShare.ReadWrite);
PngBitmapDecoder pngDecoder = new PngBitmapDecoder(pngStream, BitmapCreateOptions.PreservePixelFormat, BitmapCacheOption.Default);
BitmapFrame pngFrame = pngDecoder.Frames[0];
InPlaceBitmapMetadataWriter pngInplace = pngFrame.CreateInPlaceBitmapMetadataWriter();
if (pngInplace.TrySave() == true)
{ pngInplace.SetQuery("/Text/Description", "Have a nice day."); }
pngStream.Close();
