LEADTOOLS WPF and Silverlight (Leadtools.Windows.Controls assembly)

Leadtools.Windows.Controls Introduction

Show in webframe

Leadtools.Windows.Controls provides you with custom controls for working with images in XAML-based applications (WPF/Silverlight). These controls allow you to add image viewers, image lists, image pan windows, and interactive magnifying glass tools to your WPF applications. Any image displayed with these controls -- including the image area captured by the magnifying glass -- can then be enhanced with image effects or manipulated with other interactive user interface tools.

Image Viewers

Two different image viewer controls allow you to display over 150 LEADTOOLS-supported file formats in the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Silverlight development environments:

A WPF application that displays PDF or TIFF document images, with interactive controls for automated document cleanup and optical character recognition (OCR). Built with the LEADTOOLS RasterImage Viewer (L), plus button and slider controls bound to LEADTOOLS Document Imaging functions (R).

A WPF application that displays DICOM medical images, built with the LEADTOOLS ImageList (B), RasterImage Viewer (T), and Magnifying Glass (Inset)

For both viewers, display options include fit-to-width, stretch-to-fit, specify size, and full-sized. Viewer elements like frames, frame shadows, backgrounds, scrollbars, and borders are all customizeable.

Specify image display area, display method, and size. Dress up image displays with custom frames, borders and scrollbars.

Image Lists

The ImageList control lets you display lists of thumbnail images in several pre-defined styles, or in your own defined style. As with image lists, backgrounds, borders, and scrollbars are customizeable:

Image Pan Windows

Image pan windows allow users to keep track of where they are when viewing large images in small spaces. Users can navigate though large images by dragging the image, sliding image scrollbars, or dragging the pan window selector box.

For the image selected from the image list (R), the pan viewer (C-red box) shows the location of image detail displayed in the image viewer (L).

Magnifying Glasses

Further optimize screen space by adding a magnifying glass interactive tool to the viewer. The LEADTOOLS WPF Standard Edition and LEADTOOLS WPF Module include additional options like magnifying glass size and shape.

Key Features:

Note that in order for a WPF application to run, Microsoft .Net Framework 3.0 must be installed on the client. Internet Explorer 7 can auto-detect whether Framework is installed under certain conditions. For more information, refer to Deploying a WPF Application (WPF).
