Extensions.LoadJpeg Method

Decodes a JPEG stream into a WriteableBitmap object.

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

public static void LoadJpeg(
	this WriteableBitmap bitmap,
	Stream sourceStream


Type: System.Windows.Media.Imaging.WriteableBitmap
The WriteableBitmap object.
Type: System.IO.Stream
The image data stream.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type WriteableBitmap. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter.


The position of sourceStream cannot be used to determine the size of the encoded data. Further use of sourceStream can have unpredictable results if the position of the stream is not explicitly set.
