get a reference to the thumbnail image

Post by Thomas » Wed Feb 17, 2010 12:43 pm

I'd like to get the already generated data for the thumbnail image in the thumbnailviewer.
With GetThumbnailImage the viewer is generating a new on.
How I can get this reference?
(On the event ThumbnailPainting there is e.Thumbnail ... this is what i want to have, but directly from imagecollection)

Regards
Thomas

Hello Thomas,

What do you want to do? Maybe you want to generate thumbnail with custom appearance?

Best regards, Alexander

With the help of the thumbnailviewer we edit and arrange some (or more ;) )images. In parallel we generate a preview for the resulting output. In this preview we want to use the already generated thumbnail (to save some time, because this process was time critical). So I will give a handle to the image(s) to the preview.

Hello Thomas,

Please see our Thumbnail Viewers Demo here: http://www.vintasoft.com/vsimaging-dotnet-examples.html
and read description of the Vintasoft.Imaging.ThumbnailViewer.ThumbnailPainting event in the documentation - I think these information will help you.

Best regards, Alexander

Hello Alexander,

no, this will not help me. This event is only fired when the image is 'in view'.
What I want to do:
- Load some images into the thumbnailviewer
- Let the user do some work with the images (change the order, select and unselect ...)
- Next step: show a preview of the result. Here I want to loop through the images of the thumbnailviewer and get the already generated thumbnailimage from the thumbnailviewer. Not the hole image (it is too large) and not a new thumbnailimage with getthumbnailimage (this take too long to generate).
Is this possible?

Regards
Thomas

Hello Thomas,

I have understood your problem - we will add ability to get thumbnails from ThumbnailViewer in version 4.1 of VintaSoftImaging.NET Library, I think in 2 months.

Best regards, Alexander

Hello Alexander,

thanks for adding this functionality. Until 4.1 I will do a workaround and generate a second thumbnail while adding an image.
Regards
Thomas
