'Declaration
Public Property Stretch As Stretch
'Usage
Dim instance As Image 
Dim value As Stretch 

value = instance.Stretch

instance.Stretch = value
<object Stretch="Stretch" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.Stretch
One of the Stretch values. The default is Uniform.

Identifier field

StretchProperty

Metadata properties set to true

AffectsMeasure

A value of Fill will cause your image to stretch to completely fill the output area. When the output area and the image have different aspect ratios, the image is distorted by this stretching. To make an Image preserve the aspect ratio of the image, set this property to Uniform (default) or UniformToFill.

The following example demonstrates how to use this property.

Dim myImage1 As New Image()

' Set the stretch property.
myImage1.Stretch = Stretch.Fill

' Set the StretchDirection property.
myImage1.StretchDirection = StretchDirection.Both

' Create source 
Dim myBitmapImage1 As New BitmapImage()

' BitmapImage.UriSource must be in a BeginInit/EndInit block
myBitmapImage1.BeginInit()
myBitmapImage1.UriSource = New Uri("C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Pictures\Sample Pictures\Winter.jpg")
myBitmapImage1.EndInit()

'set image source
myImage1.Source = myBitmapImage1
