[UWP][VB]WriteableBitmapEx and FromStream RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on updating some of my apps, and Visual Studio 2017 tells me that WriteableBitmap.FromStream is deprecated, and that I should use BitmapContext.FromStream instead. This would be fine, except that as best I can tell, BitmapContext does not have a FromStream method. FromStream is an extension method from WriteableBitmapEx, but I could not find any good documentation for it to help me figure out exactly what to do. My current code is:
    Me.WriteableBmp = Await New WriteableBitmap(1, 1).FromStream(imgstream)
    I figured I just needed to change it to:
    Me.WriteableBmp = Await New BitmapContext(New WriteableBitmap(1, 1)).FromStream(imgstream)
    But like I said, BitmapContext does not seem to have a FromStream method. For now I can obviously just leave it alone and use the deprecated method, but that obviously isn't the most appropriate thing for the long term. What should I do, or where can I get good documentation for WriteableBitmapEx? Thanks.

  • Hi Nathan Sokalski,

    The WriteableBitmapEx is not the official extension, we don't suppport it, you can ask this issue to the owner in the corresponding website.
