WriteableBitmap Constructor (BitmapSource)

Initializes a new instance of the WriteableBitmap class using the given BitmapSource.

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

public WriteableBitmap(
	BitmapSource source
)

Parameters

source
Type: System.Windows.Media.Imaging.BitmapSource
The BitmapSource to use for initialization.

The WriteableBitmap(Int32, Int32, Double, Double, PixelFormat, BitmapPalette) constructor is preferred over using this constructor.

If source does not use a natively supported bitmap format, format conversions are applied for each frame update, which reduces performance.
