Hello Daniel,
i'm running into the same problem, using the image collection of an ImageViewer-control:
...
Could you send us a small working project which demonstrates your problem? If yes, please send your project to support@vintasoft.com.

Best regards, Alexander

Hello Alex,

i've recognized that the problem occurs only, if there is a thumbnailviewer attached to the ImageViewer (property "MasterViewer").

You can easily reproduce it by creating a form with an ImageViewer and ThumbnailViewer-control added to it, and then executing my code.

I've tried to de-attach the thumbnailviewer before saving, setting the "MasterViewer"-property to NULL, but this does not help. It seems if the image-collection has been changed once, the ThumbnailViewer holds some reference to it. I've also tried to call "ClearAndDisposeItems" on the image-collection of the ThumbnailViewer, but no success either.
Is there any other way to completely disconnect the ThumbnailViewer from the ImageViewer temporary?

Best regards,
Daniel

Hello Daniel,

Your code looks correct, however the simultaneous image decoding (asynchronously in viewer) with encoding of the same image causes a mutual locking.

It isn't a good practice because, theoretically, there might take place any changes in image collection: removing images, insert etc. and this may cause a failure in decoding.

What is your task?

You can at first rotate the image, save changes and then open the file in viewer:

Code: Select all

ImageCollection images = new ImageCollection();
images.Add(@"c:\test\test.tif", false);

images[0].Rotate(90);

Vintasoft.Imaging.Codecs.Encoders.TiffEncoder teTest = 
    new Vintasoft.Imaging.Codecs.Encoders.TiffEncoder();

teTest.SaveAndSwitchSource = true;

images.SaveSync(@"c:\test\test.tif", teTest);

this.imageViewer1.Images.AddRange(images.ToArray());

Or another way is to copy the file into memory:

Code: Select all

Vintasoft.Imaging.Codecs.Encoders.TiffEncoder teTest;

MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(File.ReadAllBytes(@"c:\test\test.tif"));
this.imageViewer1.Images.Add(ms, true);

this.imageViewer1.Images[0].Rotate(90);


teTest = new Vintasoft.Imaging.Codecs.Encoders.TiffEncoder();

teTest.SaveAndSwitchSource = true;

this.imageViewer1.Images.SaveSync(@"c:\test\test.tif", teTest);

Hello Yuri,

thank you for your answer and code suggestions. I will have a look into it.

Simple, build a picture viewer with thumbnail-view, where the user can rotate the currently viewed page and save it back to the file.

Hello Daniel,

Why can't you modify and use our Imaging Demo? It does what you need.
