PixelFormat.BitsPerPixel Property

Gets the number of bits-per-pixel (bpp) for this PixelFormat.

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

public int BitsPerPixel { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The number of bits-per-pixel (bpp) for this PixelFormat.

The following example shows how to use the BitsPerPixel property to find the number of bits-per-pixel of a pixel format.

public PixelFormat createPixelFormat()
{
    // Create a PixelFormat object.
    PixelFormat myPixelFormat = new PixelFormat();

    // Make this PixelFormat a Gray32Float pixel format.
    myPixelFormat = PixelFormats.Gray32Float;

    // Get the number of bits-per-pixel for this format. Because 
    // the format is "Gray32Float", the float value returned will be 32.
    int bpp = myPixelFormat.BitsPerPixel;

    // Get the collection of masks associated with this format.
    IList<PixelFormatChannelMask> myChannelMaskCollection = myPixelFormat.Masks;

    // Capture the mask info in a string.
    String stringOfValues = " ";
    foreach (PixelFormatChannelMask myMask in myChannelMaskCollection)
    {
        IList<byte> myBytesCollection = myMask.Mask;
        foreach (byte myByte in myBytesCollection)
        {
            stringOfValues = stringOfValues + myByte.ToString();
        }
    }

    // Return the PixelFormat which, for example, could be  
    // used to set the pixel format of a bitmap by using it to set 
    // the DestinationFormat of a FormatConvertedBitmap. 
    return myPixelFormat;
}
