AffectsMeasure

The Fill property will cause your image to stretch to completely fill the output area. When the output area and the image have different aspect ratios, the image is distorted by this stretching. To make an Image preserve the aspect ratio of the image, set this property to Uniform (default) or UniformToFill.

The following example demonstrates how to use this property.

Image myImage1 = new Image();

// Set the stretch property.
myImage1.Stretch = Stretch.Fill;

// Set the StretchDirection property.
myImage1.StretchDirection = StretchDirection.Both;

// Create source
BitmapImage myBitmapImage1 = new BitmapImage();

// BitmapImage.UriSource must be in a BeginInit/EndInit block
myBitmapImage1.BeginInit();
myBitmapImage1.UriSource = new Uri(@"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Pictures\Sample Pictures\Winter.jpg");
myBitmapImage1.EndInit();

//set image source
myImage1.Source = myBitmapImage1;
