GetData Method

Summary

Returns an array of Byte that represents the information that describes this RasterRegion.

Syntax
C#
VB
Java
C++
public byte[] GetData() 
Public Function GetData() As Byte() 
public byte[] getData() 
public: 
array<byte>^ GetData();  

Return Value

An array of Byte that represents the information that describes this RasterRegion.

Remarks

You can use the GetData and SetData methods to save and load the content of a region to disk or memory.

If this RasterRegion is empty, then this method will return an array of 0 items.

Example

This example will loads an image, adds a region to it, gets the RasterRegion object from the image and set it to disk. It will then re-load this data from disk and set it back to another image.
