StreamSource Property

BitmapImage.StreamSource Property


Gets or sets the stream source of the BitmapImage.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Media.Imaging
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public Stream StreamSource { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.IO.Stream

The stream source of the BitmapImage. The default is null.

If StreamSource and UriSource are both set, the StreamSource value is ignored.

Set the CacheOption property to BitmapCacheOption.OnLoad if you wish to close the stream after the BitmapImage is created. The default OnDemand cache option retains access to the stream until the bitmap is needed, and cleanup is handled by the garbage collector.
