Rotation Enumeration

Specifies the rotation to apply to a bitmap image.

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

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

Member nameDescription
Rotate0The bitmap is not rotated. This is the default value.
Rotate180Rotate the bitmap clockwise by 180 degrees.
Rotate270Rotate the bitmap clockwise by 270 degrees.
Rotate90Rotate the bitmap clockwise by 90 degrees.

Only 90 degree increments are supported.

The following example demonstrates how to apply a rotation to a bitmap image.

// Define a BitmapImage.
Image myImage = new Image();
BitmapImage bi = new BitmapImage();

// Begin initialization.

// Set properties.
bi.CacheOption = BitmapCacheOption.OnDemand;
bi.CreateOptions = BitmapCreateOptions.DelayCreation;
bi.DecodePixelHeight = 125;
bi.DecodePixelWidth = 125;
bi.Rotation = Rotation.Rotate90;
bi.UriSource = new Uri("smiley.png", UriKind.Relative);

// End initialization.
myImage.Source = bi;
myImage.Stretch = Stretch.None;
myImage.Margin = new Thickness(5);
