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

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public int Height { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The height, in pixels, of this Image.

The following code example demonstrates how to construct a new bitmap from a file, using the GetPixel and SetPixel methods to recolor the image. It also uses the PixelFormat and Height properties.

This example is designed to be used with a Windows Forms that contains a Label, PictureBox, and Button named Label1, PictureBox1, and Button1, respectively. Paste the code into the form and associate the Button1_Click method with the button's Click event.


Bitmap image1;

private void Button1_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

    try
    {
        // Retrieve the image.
        image1 = new Bitmap(@"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\" 
            + @"Documents\My Music\music.bmp", true);

        int x, y;

        // Loop through the images pixels to reset color.
        for(x=0; x<image1.Width; x++)
        {
            for(y=0; y<image1.Height; y++)
            {
                Color pixelColor = image1.GetPixel(x, y);
                Color newColor = Color.FromArgb(pixelColor.R, 0, 0);
                image1.SetPixel(x, y, newColor);
            }
        }

        // Set the PictureBox to display the image.
        PictureBox1.Image = image1;

        // Display the pixel format in Label1.
        Label1.Text = "Pixel format: "+image1.PixelFormat.ToString();

    }
    catch(ArgumentException)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("There was an error." +
            "Check the path to the image file.");
    }
}
