public class ImageViewerSpyGlassInteractiveMode : ImageViewerInteractiveMode 
Public Class ImageViewerSpyGlassInteractiveMode 
   Inherits ImageViewerInteractiveMode 
public ref class ImageViewerSpyGlassInteractiveMode : ImageViewerInteractiveMode 

ImageViewerSpyGlassInteractiveMode derives from ImageViewerInteractiveMode and subscribes to the following events of the InteractiveService:

The mode will set InteractiveEventArgs.IsHandled to true under the normal conditions for these events.

The ImageViewerSpyGlassInteractiveMode interactive mode does not perform any action on the viewer (besides drawing the the spy glass). It is up to the user to implement any custom operation required, (for example, to implement a magnify glass). The ImageViewerMagnifyGlassInteractiveMode derives from the ImageViewerSpyGlassInteractiveMode and overrides the OnDrawImage method to draw a magnified version of the area under the spy glass.

The ImageViewerSpyGlassInteractiveMode also supports redirecting the output to an external control instead of the viewer surface. For an example, refer to RedirectControl.

For more information, refer to Image Viewer Interactive Modes.


This example will use ImageViewerSpyGlassInteractiveMode to show an inverted portion of the image under the mouse.

using Leadtools.Drawing; 
using Leadtools.ImageProcessing; 
using Leadtools.ImageProcessing.Color; 
var spyGlass = new ImageViewerSpyGlassInteractiveMode(); 
spyGlass.BackgroundBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.FromArgb(128, Color.Yellow)); 
spyGlass.BackgroundBrush = Brushes.Yellow; 
spyGlass.AutoItemMode = ImageViewerAutoItemMode.AutoSet; 
spyGlass.EnsureVisible = false;
