ChangeToImage Method


Changes a LEADTOOLS Leadtools.RasterImage to a GDI+ System.Drawing.Image.

public static Image ChangeToImage( 
   RasterImage image, 
   ChangeToImageOptions options 
Public Shared Function ChangeToImage( _ 
   ByVal image As RasterImage, _ 
   ByVal options As ChangeToImageOptions _ 
) As Image 
static Image^ ChangeToImage(  
   RasterImage^ image, 
   ChangeToImageOptions options 


The source image.

The conversion options.

Return Value

The GDI+ image that this method creates.


This result GDI+ image and the Leadtools.RasterImage object will share the same image data. You can use this method to pass a LEAD Leadtools.RasterImage object to other class library methods that expect a GDI+ System.Drawing.Image object. Use the ConvertToImage method to obtain a GDI+ System.Drawing.Image object that is a copy of this Leadtools.RasterImage object.

Calling this method may change the internal format of this Leadtools.RasterImage object.

Use TestCompatible to determine if the image is compatible for conversion to a GDI+ image.

For a Leadtools.RasterImage to be compatible with a GDI+ image it needs the following:

To convert a GDI+ image to a LEADTOOLS Leadtools.RasterImage, use ConvertFromImage.

For more information, refer to Using The PaintEngine Property.

For more information refer to RasterImage and GDI/GDI+.


This example changes between a Leadtools.RasterImage and a GDI+ image.
