PngInterlaceOption Enumeration

Specifies whether a Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format image is interlaced during encoding.

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

public enum PngInterlaceOption
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
DefaultThe PngBitmapEncoder determines whether the image should be interlaced.
OffThe resulting bitmap image is not interlaced.
OnThe resulting bitmap image is interlaced.

Interlacing refers to the process of displaying a PNG frame in two fields. One field contains the even lines of the frame, while the other field contains the odd lines of the frame. When the PNG is viewed, the lines in one field are displayed first, and then the lines in the second field are displayed.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Interlace property of the PngBitmapEncoder class.

FileStream stream = new FileStream("new.png", FileMode.Create);
PngBitmapEncoder encoder = new PngBitmapEncoder();
TextBlock myTextBlock = new TextBlock();
myTextBlock.Text = "Codec Author is: " + encoder.CodecInfo.Author.ToString();
encoder.Interlace = PngInterlaceOption.On;
encoder.Frames.Add(BitmapFrame.Create(image));
encoder.Save(stream);
