Bitmap.Serialize Method

Serializes the bitmap object.

Namespace: Aurigma.GraphicsMill
Assembly: Aurigma.GraphicsMill (in Aurigma.GraphicsMill.dll)

Syntax

Visual Basic
Public Sub Serialize ( _
	stream As Stream _
)
C#
public void Serialize(
	Stream stream
)

Parameters

stream

Type: System.IO.Stream

Stream which will keep the serialized data.

Remarks

To restore the bitmap object from the serialization data, use the Deserialize(Stream) method.

You can enable or disable the compression of the serialization data by using the CompressSerializedData property. It is recommended to use compression only if you transfer the serialization data through the network (or if the size is critical for any other reason). Otherwise it can noticeable reduce the serialization/deserialization process performance.

Note

This method closes the specified Stream after serialization.
