BitmapImage::StreamSource Property

Gets or sets the stream source of the BitmapImage.

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

property Stream^ StreamSource {
	Stream^ get ();
	void set (Stream^ value);

Property Value

Type: System.IO::Stream
The stream source of the BitmapImage. The default is nullptr.

Identifier field


Metadata properties set to true


If StreamSource and UriSource are both set, the StreamSource value is ignored.

Set the CacheOption property to BitmapCacheOption::OnLoad if you wish to close the stream after the BitmapImage is created. The default OnDemand cache option retains access to the stream until the bitmap is needed, and cleanup is handled by the garbage collector.
