PaintImage(Graphics,RasterImage,Rectangle,Rectangle,Rectangle,Rectangle,SpecialEffectsType,int,int,int,int,int,int,bool,Color,int,Color,RasterPaintProperties,SpecialEffectsProgress) Method

Summary

Applies an effect when painting an image to a target device context. The effect, commonly used for slide show transitions, specifies how the image is painted, not how it looks when painting is finished.

Parameters

graphics
The destination Graphics object.

image
Pointer to an object that contains the image to paint.

src
Rectangle to be used as the display source rectangle that specifies the part of the bitmap to use as the display source. The coordinates in the Rectangle object are relative to the image. You can pass null to use the default, which matches the image.

srcClip
Rectangle to be used as the display source clipping rectangle that specifies the portion of the display source to paint. Generally, this is used for updating the display when part of the source bitmap has changed. The coordinates for the Rectangle object are relative to the image. You can pass null to use the default, which matches the bitmap.

dest
Rectangle to be used as the display destination rectangle that determines how the source rectangle is scaled and how the image is positioned in the device context. The coordinates for the Rectangle object are relative to the device context. There is no default for this parameter. You must specify the Recatangle object.

destClip
Rectangle to be used as the display destination clipping rectangle.that specifies the portion of the display rectangle to paint. Generally, this is used for updating changes in the display surface, such as when a user moves another window, uncovering a part of the image that had been covered up.The coordinates in the Rectangle object are relative to the device context. You can pass null to use the default, which matches the device context.

effectType
Effect to apply when painting. For valid values, refer to SpecialEffectsType.

grain
Graining size. This is the smallest size (pixel width or height) to be updated when painting an effect. Using a small grain makes the painting smoother, but takes longer to paint. Using a large grain makes the painting more coarse, but paints faster. If the effectType parameter is from the Wave class this represents the duration or height of the wave. Valid values are 1 to 256.

delay
Delay between graining steps, in milliseconds.

speed
Speed of the wave. Valid values are 1 to 256. This parameter is valid only if the effectType parameter is from the Wave class.

cycles
Number of cycles or repetitions used to draw the wave. This parameter is valid only if the effectType parameter is from the Wave class.

pass
Pass number when using a pattern brush. Use 1 for painting in one pass.

maxPass
Maximum passes for a pattern brush. Use 1 for painting in one pass.

transparency
True to implement transparency by not painting pixels of the color specified in the transparentColor parameter; False if transparency is not implemented.

transparentColor
Value that specifies the transparent color.

wandWidth
Wand width, in pixels.

wandColor
Value that specifies the wand color.

paintProperties
Options for the display.

progressCallback
Callback method that will be called when the paint image is started to determine the status for the paint image effect.

Remarks

Use the grain and delay parameters to control the speed of the display. The grain parameter controls the size of the painting increment, and delay controls the time between increments.

The wand is a solid color bar that moves during an effect. Small grain sizes produce the best wand effects. Many of the effects listed in Effect Types can have a wand.

Use the pass and maxPass parameters to paint the image in more than one pass. For example, if you want a 3-pass paint, use maxPass of 3 and paint 3 times, once with pass = 1, once with pass = 2, and once with pass = 3.

Multipass painting for the PushClass is disabled.

If the effectType parameter is from the Twirl class, White Turnover class, Turnover class, Replace class, Laser class, Fade Normal class, Fade Black and White class, Fade Color class or Wave Class, the pass and maxPass parameters have no effect.

If the effectType parameter is from the Fade Normal class, Fade Black and White class or Fade Color class, the grain parameter has no effect. However, if the effectType parameter is from the Wave class, the grain parameter contains the wave size.

If the effectType parameter is from the White Turnover class, the Turnover class or the Replace class, the wandWidth and wandColor parameters have no effect. However, if the effectType parameter is from the Fade Color class, the wandColor parameter contains the bitmap color level.

The speed and cycles parameters have effect only if the effectType parameter is from the Wave class.

For general information, refer to Implementing Special Effects.
