GetPixel at Mouse Position

I'm trying to find the color of the pixel under the mouse pointer in vb.net (Windows Phone 8)

I think the way forward is to create a WriteableBitmap of the image on the page and use .GetPixel(GetPosition(mImage).X, GetPosition(mImage).y)

Problem is that the image on the page is set to fill the page.  How can I translate the position in the stretched image to that of the unstreched image ?

Here is an example, that uses a Border class, the MouseMove event, and e.GetPosition to get the mouse position as a Point.

There is a CodePlex project, called WriteableBitmapEx, that provides extension methods for the WriteableBitmap class to make it easier to work with that class:

hi.. this code is in C# please convert into vb

private bool TrackHorizontally = false;
        this.border.MouseMove += new MouseEventHandler(border_MouseMove);
        void border_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
        {
 
            var cBegin = Colors.Green;
            var cEnd = Colors.Yellow;
            GradientStop gs1, gs2;
            var brush = new LinearGradientBrush();
            var gs0 = new GradientStop(cBegin, 0);
            var gs3 = new GradientStop(cEnd, 1.0);
 
            Point p = e.GetPosition(this.border);
            var factor = TrackHorizontally ? p.Y / this.border.Height : p.X / this.border.Width;
 
            if (TrackHorizontally)
            {
                brush.StartPoint = new Point(0.5, 0);
                brush.EndPoint = new Point(0.5, 1);
 
                gs1 = new GradientStop(cBegin, factor);
                gs2 = new GradientStop(cEnd, factor);
            }
            else
            {
                brush.StartPoint = new Point(0, 0.5);
                brush.EndPoint = new Point(1, 0.5);
 
                gs1 = new GradientStop(cBegin, factor);
                gs2 = new GradientStop(cEnd, factor);
            }
 
            brush.GradientStops = new GradientStopCollection { gs0, gs1, gs2, gs3 };
 
            this.border.Background = brush;
        }
    }

I know how to get the mouse position and pixel color.. just not how to scale the on screen image to the in memory image.

OK, I missed a very crucial part of your question:

"How can I translate the position in the stretched image to that of the unstretched image ?"

Off the top of my head, I would say that you need to determine a conversion factor...

Example:

Image 1 = 800 x 600
Image 2 = 400 x 300

Image 2 is half the height and width of Image 1.  That means that for every pixel in Image 2, there are twice as many pixels as Image 1.  

Conversion factor from #2 to #1 equals 2
Conversion factor from #1 to #2  equals .5
