Assembly:  Microsoft.WindowsMobile.DirectX (in Microsoft.WindowsMobile.DirectX.dll)

public class Texture : BaseTexture, IDisposable

This object inherits functionality from BaseTexture.

The following code example shows how to use a texture.

// This code example is taken from the 
// Direct3D Mobile Texture Sample included with the 
// .NET Compact Framework samples. 

// Called whenever the rendering device is reset. 
void OnResetDevice(object sender, EventArgs e)
    Device dev = (Device)sender;
    // Turn off culling, so we see the front and back of the triangle
    dev.RenderState.CullMode = Cull.None;
    // Turn off D3D lighting
    dev.RenderState.Lighting = false;
    // Turn on the ZBuffer
    dev.RenderState.ZBufferEnable = true;
    // Turn on perspective correction for textures 
    // This provides a more accurate visual at the cost 
    // of a small performance overhead
    dev.RenderState.TexturePerspective = true;
    // Now create our texture

    texture = TextureLoader.FromStream(dev,
