Image objects

P: n/a
Nak
Hi there,

This might sound like a silly question but, technically could an image
object be used for any image format? For example if I were to make plugins
for my application, could they be made to return a specific image format as
an image object, such as PSD (Only for viewing purposes). Thanks in advance

If you are talking about inheriting from an Image object, which is what
you'd need to do, then no.

Microsoft have programmed the Image object to be inheritable, but inheritors
need to define a constructor that calls the base constructor, and the base
constructor is declared as Friend, which means only the classes that reside
in the 'Image' assembly can inherit from Image.

Sorry :)

Can the image object do this? Maybe an example of it being used to
store an "unsupported" format would be excellent, like PSD for example.

Havr you seen any examples of let's say a PSD image being opened in
VB.NET and stored as an image object? or any other "non natively

Haven't heart of PSD yet, so, sorry, no solution.

Technically yes, but you have to do the conversion.

What you could do is to create a new bitmap object, then make a method that
opens your PSD parses it and draws to that bitmap.

Hi Tom,

But technically can't ANY image type be converted to be used in a Bitmap object? If this is the case then I shall just use Bitmap instead of image, hmmm..... Ever seen any examples of other image types being loaded in ..NET? Cheers again.

The Image object is a basic framework for all the Image types. So, no you
can not do this, without inheriting from the image object. The basic
functionality of an Image is inside this object, which is why Bitmap and
Metafile inherit from it.

You'd have to write your own handler to open the file, parse it and

produce
a graphics object for it, and whatnot.

Fun? Huh! Well, it looks like I have probably chosen the hardest file
type to read, the image is not always stored in it's rendered state for each
layer as they can contain effects, meaning that I would have to apply the
effects myself. Oh well, maybe I should leave PSD alone, but I will get it
to load other types or there was no point in me just making a plugin engine.
As I understand it, the .NET Framework supports the following images (or
loosely anyway)...

bmp,
emf,
exif,
gif,
ico,
jpeg,jpg,
png,
tif,tiff,
wmf

I have tried all except exif and they worked fine, some png files opened
strangely and some gif files would not open depending on their compression.
Another image viewer called Irfanview manages to support something like 53
different formats, I know that I would be able to work out how to open that
many with mine, but the potential is there at least. Any ideas on what
formats I most definitely should have a try at anyone? Cheers in advance
:-)

Hey I'm not going anywhere yet, sheesh! I have been programming all day and
writing in the newsgroup too every time I take a break. But yes you are
right, there are several versions of the PSD file format and it isn't very
well documented from what I can see, apart from it being an apparent
nightmare to read, it even has an image stored in it that should represent
the final "rendered" image but apparently it doesn't allways contain the
correct data, fat lot of good that is! Anyway, I know 1 thing for sure, no
PSD, I'm not clever enough! :-(

So, if you want to show a PSD file, you have to write a decoder of PSD
format, to convert it into BMP or other GDI+ supported format. And then,
load it into the Image object. On the other hand, if you want to write to a PSD file, you also have to write an encoder.

Yeah I'm looking all over the place, I have found C++ code and some dead VB6

complex and not well documented that even commercial implementations don't

I'll have a look for an emulator. Yesterday I set up Windows 3.11 +
Visual Basic 2.0 in an emulator.

Windows 3.11 in an emulator?? How did you manage that one, I could write
Windows 3.11 in VB.NET in 3 lines of code...

While OperatingSystemStillRunning
If(userActivity() > -1) Then
Call blueScreenOfDeath
Else
Call sleep(5000000)
End if
End While


*grrr*

I'm not even going to comment about Windows 3.11. It was (is?) a cool
operating system. There are some caves that still use it to track Stalagmite
formation.

It seems you are not enabling Option Strict. Enable it in the project
properties and the compiler might find the error for you. Jobs a good'n!

So why is it that I can remember Amigas, and I'm 17?? Infact I used to have
an Amiga. There was a good version of BASIC on it. I also still have a ZX
Spectrum lying about somewhere....
