Items Property


The collection of items in this ImageViewer

public ImageViewerItems Items { get; } 
   property ImageViewerItems^ Items 
      ImageViewerItems^ get() 

Property Value

The collection of items in this ImageViewer.


Items is of type ImageViewerItems which supports standard collection operations such as adding, removing and enumerating the items.

The viewer listens to the events of ImageViewerItems (Using LeadCollection.CollectionChanged) and automatically re-calculates the view layout and update the transformations used when an item is added, removed or changed by the view and items by calling UpdateTransform.

Use BeginUpdate and EndUpdate to optimize this behavior when adding or removing multiple items at once.

The viewer will automatically keep the ActiveItem property set to an item inside this collection. Usually, the first item added if the user did not change the value. When an item is removed, the viewer will set ActiveItem to the new item that takes index in the collection. Finally when no items are left in the collection, ActiveItem will be set to null.

For more information, refer to Image Viewer Items.


This example will show how to add, remove and enumerate items in the viewer.

Start with the ImageViewer example, remove all the code inside the example function (search for the "// TODO: add example code here" comment) and insert the following code:

using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Controls; 
using Leadtools.Codecs; 
using Leadtools.Drawing; 
using Leadtools.ImageProcessing; 
using Leadtools.ImageProcessing.Color; 
public void ImageViewerItems_Example() 
   // Clear all the images already the viewer 
   // Use vertical view layout 
   _imageViewer.ViewLayout = new ImageViewerVerticalViewLayout(); 
   _imageViewer.ImageBorderThickness = 1; 
   // Add 4 items to the viewer 
   using (var codecs = new RasterCodecs()) 
      for (var page = 1; page <= 4; page++) 
         var item = new ImageViewerItem(); 
         var fileName = Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir, string.Format("ocr{0}.tif", page)); 
         item.Image = codecs.Load(fileName, 100, 100, 24, RasterSizeFlags.Resample, CodecsLoadByteOrder.BgrOrGray, page, page); 
         // Set the tag of each item to be the page number 
         item.Tag = page; 
   // Show the count 
   Debug.WriteLine("This must say 4: " + _imageViewer.Items.Count); 
   // Remove the item at index 1 (page 2) 
   Debug.WriteLine("This must now say 3: " + _imageViewer.Items.Count); 
   // Loop through each item and show the tag, since we remove page 2, it must say 1, 3, 4 
   foreach (var item in _imageViewer.Items) 
      var pageNumber = (int)item.Tag; 
static class LEAD_VARS 
   public const string ImagesDir = @"C:\LEADTOOLS22\Resources\Images";
