ConvertToImage Method


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

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


The source image.

The conversion options.

Return Value

The GDI+ image this method creates


This result GDI+ image is a copy of this Leadtools.RasterImage object and do not 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 ChangeToImage method to obtain a GDI+ System.Drawing.Image object that shares its data with this Leadtools.RasterImage object.

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

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

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

For more information, refer to Using The PaintEngine Property.

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


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