[<SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)>]
member UnlockBits : 
        bitmapdata:BitmapData -> unit

Parameters

bitmapdata
Type: System.Drawing.Imaging.BitmapData

A BitmapData that specifies information about the lock operation.

Exception Condition
Exception

The operation failed.

The BitmapData specifies the attributes of the Bitmap, such as size, pixel format, the starting address of the pixel data in memory, and length of each scan line (stride).

The following code example demonstrates how to use the PixelFormat, Height, Width, and Scan0 properties; the LockBits and UnlockBits methods; and the ImageLockMode enumeration. This example is not designed to work correctly with all pixel formats, but to provide an example of how to use the LockBits method. This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. To run this example, paste it into a form and handle the form's Paint event by calling the LockUnlockBitsExample method, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
