ImageAttributes.SetColorKey Method (Color, Color)


Sets the color key for the default category.

Namespace:   System.Drawing.Imaging
Assembly:  System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)

public void SetColorKey(
	Color colorLow,
	Color colorHigh


Type: System.Drawing.Color

The low color-key value.

Type: System.Drawing.Color

The high color-key value.

This method sets the high and low color-key values so that a range of colors can be made transparent. Any color that has each of its three components (red, green, blue) between the corresponding components of the high and low color keys is made transparent.

An ImageAttributes object maintains color and grayscale settings for five adjustment categories: default, bitmap, brush, pen, and text. For example, you can specify a color key for the default category, a different color key for the bitmap category, and still a different color key for the pen category.

The default color-adjustment and grayscale-adjustment settings apply to all categories that do not have adjustment settings of their own. For example, if you never specify any adjustment settings for the pen category, the default settings apply to the pen category.

For a code example, see the SetColorKey(Color, Color, ColorAdjustType) method.
