<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription

Use this enumeration primarily as a parameter for methods that add images to XML Paper Specification (XPS) documents.

The following example shows how to use this enumeration when you add images to an XML Paper Specification (XPS) document.

// ---------------------------- Create() ------------------------------ 
/// <summary> 
///   Creates an XpsDocument using the Xps.Packaging APIs.</summary> 
/// <param name="xpsDocument">
///   The XpsDocument to create.</param> 
/// <remarks> 
///   The Xps.Packaging APIs are used to create the DocumentSequence, 
///   FixedDocument, and FixedPage "PackageParts" of an XpsDocument.
///   The applicationt is responsible for using the XmlWriter to 
///   serialize the page markup and for supplying the streams for any 
///   font or image resources.</remarks> 
public void Create(XpsDocument xpsDocument)
    // Create the document sequence
    IXpsFixedDocumentSequenceWriter docSeqWriter =

    // Create the document
    IXpsFixedDocumentWriter docWriter = docSeqWriter.AddFixedDocument();

    // Create the Page
    IXpsFixedPageWriter pageWriter = docWriter.AddFixedPage();

    // Get the XmlWriter
    XmlWriter xmlWriter = pageWriter.XmlWriter;

    // Write the mark up according the XPS Specifications
    AddGlyphRun(pageWriter, xmlWriter,
        "This is a photo of the famous Notre Dame in Paris",
        16, 50, 50, @"C:\Windows\fonts\arial.ttf");

    AddImage(pageWriter, xmlWriter,
        "ParisNotreDame.jpg", XpsImageType.JpegImageType,
        100, 100, 600, 1100 );

    // End the page.
    EndFixedPage( xmlWriter );

    // Close the page, document, and document sequence.
}// end:Create()
