Drawing images

NumberImages describes how many sub images are there in a bitmap, default value for the attribute is 1.

There are two styles of matrix drawing: New Style Matrix Drawing and Old Style Matrix Drawing.

Old Style Matrix Drawing:

Every sub image is broken into 9 regions and draws each one separately.

Here is the diagram of the image regions:

A B C
D E F
G H I

Margins help to define regions size, for example Margins="10,5,20,30" where 10 - left margin, 5 - top margin, 20 - right margin, 30 - bottom margin, will create 9 regions with following sizes:

A - 10 x 5
B - X x 5
C - 20 x 5
D - 10 x Y
E - X x Y
F - 20 x Y
G - 10 x 30
H - X x 30
I - 20 x 30

To change default drawing behavior for sub image use DrawMode attribute.

DrawMode values:

  • REGION_B_STRETCH - stretch region B
  • REGION_B_TILE - tile region B
  • REGION_D_STRETCH - stretch region D
  • REGION_D_TILE - tile region D
  • REGION_F_STRETCH - stretch region F
  • REGION_F_TILE - tile region F
  • REGION_H_STRETCH - stretch region H
  • REGION_H_TILE - tile region H
  • REGION_E_VSTRETCH - stretch region E vertically
  • REGION_E_VTILE - tile region E vertically
  • REGION_E_HSTRETCH - stretch region E horizontally
  • REGION_E_HTILE - tile region E horizontally
