Convert BitmapImage to System.Windows.Media.Brush
How would I convert a BitmapImage to a System.Windows.Media.Brush?
I have a BitmapImage imaginatively called bitmap, and I have a Canvas (also imaginatively titled) canvas.
How would I set the value of canvas to the value of bitmap?
I've tried canvas.Background = bitmap;, but that didn't work: image.Source = bitmap; works for images, but not Canvases: and
ImageSourceConverter imgs = new ImageSourceConverter(); canvas.SetValue(Image.SourceProperty, imgs.ConvertFromString(bitmap.ToString()));
didn't work either.
All of these worked with images, however.
Maybe something with bitmap.ToString() would work?
Create an ImageBrush and use that as the background:
ImageBrush ib = new ImageBrush(); ib.ImageSource = bitmap; canvas.Background = ib;
