BitmapPixelFormat enumeration

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Specifies the pixel format of pixel data. Each enumeration value defines a channel ordering, bit depth, and data type.

Syntax


var value = Windows.Graphics.Imaging.BitmapPixelFormat.unknown;

Attributes

[Version(0x06020000)]

Members

The BitmapPixelFormat enumeration has these members.

MemberValueDescription
Unknown | unknown0

The pixel format is unknown.

Rgba16 | rgba1612

The pixel format is R16B16G16A16 unsigned integer.

Rgba8 | rgba830

The pixel format is R8G8B8A8 unsigned integer.

Bgra8 | bgra887

The pixel format is B8G8R8A8 unsigned integer.

Remarks

BitmapPixelFormat is used in conjunction with BitmapAlphaMode to fully describe the pixel data.

The set of pixel formats represented by BitmapPixelFormat is smaller than the set of native pixel formats that can be supported by the bitmap codecs. For example, certain codecs support 32 bit floating point values. In these cases there will be a loss in fidelity when obtaining pixel data from the bitmap.
