How to get around no Graphics for an indexed Bitmap

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 17, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
I'm building a library of bitmap graphics functions. I'm not sure how to handle the fact that the indexed formats do not allow a Graphics object. I suppose I could check the Bitmap supplied to the function and use the graphics object if it's possible and other methods if it is not. I'm hopping there is a better way. Can you suggest an approach or other helpful comments Also, I've read that GDI+ version 6 allows graphics with indexed data. If that is true is there any way I could make use of that fact?   Thanks

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Bitmap FromFile space "file not found"


I am using aspose.slides to create PPTx's. Some of the process involves loading jpg's from another server and including them in the presentation. This works fine in my development environment. When I upload the site to its server, the jpg loading fails.

I am trying to access jpg's on the other server by:

   oFS = New FileStream(sFile, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)

This causes an access violation error when run from the server.

I also boiled the code down to reading the file directly:

   oImg = System.Drawing.Bitmap.FromFile(sFilePath)

This causes a file not found error.

We have narrowed the problem down to the fact that the File Path has a space in it. How does one solve this problem (while still keeping the space, there is a lot of legacy data)? I have tried replacing the space with %20 or +. I have tried using Server.UrlEncode. The error message always comes back with the encoding in place (like no decoding

Bitmap to Image Control - ImageUrl


 This is my first attempt at using the drawing features of asp.net.  I just want to start simple, and create a single color bar based on a value for a single graph.  I wrote this so far, but I can't figure out how to take the bitmap I just created, and apply it to the Image Control. Do I have to save the file first, and then reload it.

Plus, my box keeps coming out pure black, I trying to fill the box with a color. 

This is part of a web custom control, in which I dynamically created an Image Control. I want to apply the bitmap I made to the image control. 


Dim imgGoogle As Image
imgGoogle = New Image
imgGoogle.ImageAlign = ImageAlign.AbsMiddle
imgGoogle.ImageUrl = cs.GetWebResourceUrl(rsType, "ice5software.BotCatcher.Google.gif")
Private Sub DrawBarGraph_Google(ByVal BarValue As Integer)

	Dim objBitmap As System.Drawing.Bitmap
	Dim objGraphics As S

DirectX 9.0: Introducing the New Managed Direct3D Graphics API in the .NET Framework


DirectX 9.0 is the latest evolution of the Microsoft 3D graphics technology for Windows. Direct3D, a major component of the DirectX Graphics subsystem, has evolved so rapidly in the last few years that the underlying programming paradigm has changed quite a bit from its origin. This article introduces the fundamental concepts of the unmanaged Direct3D architecture and illustrates how the managed Direct3D layer abstracts the unmanaged layer. Also, the author describes the Geometry, Texture, Device, and other classes and uses code from the Samples SDK.

Vector Graphics: Build Flexible, Lightweight XML-Based Images for ASP.NET Using Scalable Vector Grap


Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), a W3C graphics standard built around XML, is one of several vector graphics technologies that allows fast, lightweight drawings such as charts and graphs to be rendered on the fly in an appropriate viewer. There are many advantages to such vector graphics, including conservation of bandwidth and storage media, and flexibility. This article explains these benefits and shows you how to easily add powerful, dynamic, interactive visual elements to your Web applications.

ASP.NET: Create Snazzy Web Charts and Graphics On the Fly with the .NET Framework


Knowledge workers can understand data more effectively when raw numbers are presented in a graphical format. This is especially true when displaying database information on a Web page, where a simple chart can make the difference between a dry presentation and a vivid data source. In the past, creating dynamic, data-based charts on the fly in ASP required purchasing a third-party, image-generating COM component. Now with ASP.NET, developers can access the .NET Framework's drawing classes directly with C# to create dynamic images and charts.

Graphics: Manipulate Digital Images in Internet Explorer with the DirectX Transform SDK


The Microsoft DirectX Transform is a Microsoft DirectX media API that can be used to create animated effects as well as to create and edit digital images for Windows-based applications. Scripting and HTML can be used to display an existing transform on a Web page, and improved transform support in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 makes it easy to use transforms. This article provides step-by-step instructions for writing a transform as an ATL project and shows an example of an image transform. C++ is used to instantiate, configure, and display transforms in this project.

encoding/decoding a string to/from bitmap


I have two methods:

Encode - takes a string, converts it to array of bytes, uses bytes to specify colors, creates a color and sets a pixel based on bytes

Decode - takes a pixel, retrieves color (R,G,B) bytes and converts them to characters, that produces a string which was previously encoded

I'm using two for loops (img height/width) to specify position and access pixels

The issue is that once display (Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display) changes to anything other then "Smaller - 100%",
bytes have different values during decoding, thus different string is produced (corrupted).

If the setting is set to "Smaller - 100%" the results are normal.

What can I do to avoid that problem?

Thanks in advance

Writing Bitmap to Response.OutputStream - Generic Error Occured in GDI+



This is what I'm trying to do when I get the error on the server (it works on my local machine):

System.Drawing.Image image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(filepath);
System.Drawing.Bitmap bmp = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(image); 

Response.ContentType = "image/bmp";
bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);

I don't think it can be a permissions problem because this works on the server:

System.Drawing.Image image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(filepath);
System.Drawing.Bitmap bmp = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(image);

Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg";
bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);

So how do I get this to work for a bitmap?

Change Bitmap Resolution and Turn Black & White

i use this method to resize bitmaps. Bitmap OriginalBM = (Bitmap)Bitmap.FromStream(fileUploader.PostedFile.InputStream); Size newSize = new Size(300, 500); Bitmap Resizebm = new Bitmap(OriginalBM, newSize); Resizebm.Save(HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath(yourPath) + yourImage, ImageFormat.Jpeg); OriginalBM.Dispose(); My question is how can i Change Bitmap Resolution and Turn Black & White?

Graphics Bitmaps & Rectangles

I am trying to draw 2 bitmap images on top of each other. 1 is a background image that only changes occasionally and the other is a foreground image the moves around a lot. The foreground image is usually an ellipse. But when I show it I always end up with the corners of the constraining rectangle being shown! I have included some basic code that demonstrates what I mean. How can I show two bit maps with the top one only showing the exact shape I require (without gray corners). Also if I want to remove the foreground image from being seen do I need to redraw the entire background? or can I just redraw the bit where the foreground image was. or can I just hide the foreground image somehow? This maybe a basic question - Graphics are a new area to me!
