Members

Member name Description
ReadOnly Specifies that a portion of the image is locked for reading.
ReadWrite Specifies that a portion of the image is locked for reading or writing.
UserInputBuffer Specifies that the buffer used for reading or writing pixel data is allocated by the user. If this flag is set, the flags parameter of the Bitmap.LockBits method serves as an input parameter (and possibly as an output parameter). If this flag is cleared, then the flags parameter serves only as an output parameter.
WriteOnly Specifies that a portion of the image is locked for writing.
