  • I would like to know how to load an image externally url

    <Button Name="StartGameBtn" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="686,487,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="180" Height="69" Background="{x:Null}" Click="StartGameBtn_Click" Grid.ColumnSpan="2" DataContext="{Binding}">
                    <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type Button}">
                            <Image Name="Close2" Source="Resources/gamestart_hover.bmp" Stretch="Fill" Visibility="Collapsed" />
                            <Image Name="Close1" Source="Resources/gamestart.bmp" Stretch="Fill" Visibility="Visible" />
                            <Trigger Property="UIElement.IsMouseOver" Value="True">
                                <Setter TargetName="Close2" Property="UIElement.Visibility" Value="Visible" />
                                <Setter TargetName="Close1" Property="UIElement.Visibility" Value="Collapsed" />

    this code is loaded from xaml

    I am trying to load the images externally url from xaml.cs
    but I have not been able to achieve it

    try using this code

    Uri uri = new Uri(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory + strFormattedDate + @"\start.png", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute);
                   Close1.ImageSource = BitmapFrame.Create(uri);  
    but I don't have close1 reading, since it doesn't seem to exist to me

    can you tell me what I'm doing wrong

  • What do you mean "I don't have close1 reading"? It may be you have a malformed path e.g.

    using static System.IO.Path


    Combine(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory, strFormattedDate, "start.png");

    And that strFormattedDate is acceptable for a valid path.
