The ImageBrush type exposes the following members.
|ImageBrush||Initializes a new instance of the ImageBrush class.|
|AlignmentX||Gets or sets the horizontal alignment of content in the TileBrush base tile. (Inherited from TileBrush.)|
|AlignmentY||Gets or sets the vertical alignment of content in the TileBrush base tile. (Inherited from TileBrush.)|
|Dispatcher||Gets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ImageSource||Gets or sets the image displayed by this ImageBrush.|
|Opacity||Gets or sets the degree of opacity of a Brush. (Inherited from Brush.)|
|RelativeTransform||Gets or sets the transformation that is applied to the brush using relative coordinates. (Inherited from Brush.)|
|Stretch||Gets or sets a value that specifies how the content of this TileBrush stretches to fit its tiles. (Inherited from TileBrush.)|
|Transform||Gets or sets the transformation that is applied to the brush. (Inherited from Brush.)|
|CheckAccess||Determines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ClearValue||Clears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetAnimationBaseValue||Returns any base value established for a Silverlight dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetValue||Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ReadLocalValue||Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|SetValue||Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ImageFailed||Occurs when there is an error associated with image retrieval or format.|
|ImageOpened||Occurs when the image source is downloaded and decoded with no failure. You can use this event to determine the size of an image before rendering it.|
|ImageSourceProperty||Identifies the ImageSource dependency property.|
An ImageBrush paints an area with an ImageSource. The ImageSource subclass that is defined by Silverlight 5 is BitmapImage, which describes a bitmap graphic.
An ImageBrush is a type of TileBrush that defines its content as an image. You can control how the image is stretched, aligned, and tiled, enabling you to produce patterns and other effects.
One use for an ImageBrush is to create a decorative effect for text in your application.
If the ImageSource property is set to an invalid format, or is specified to a URI that cannot be resolved, then the ImageFailed event is raised.
The following XAML example shows how to set the Foreground property of a TextBlock to an ImageBrush, whose image is used as the fill for the TextBlock rendered text.
<!-- TextBlock with an image brush applied to the text. --> <TextBlock FontFamily="Verdana" FontSize="72" FontStyle="Italic" FontWeight="Bold"> SHRUBBERY <TextBlock.Foreground> <ImageBrush ImageSource="forest.jpg"/> </TextBlock.Foreground> </TextBlock>
The following illustration shows the results of this XAML example.
