I am trying to copy an image at runtime into an image control.

This is my code:

void cmdHole1_Tap(object sender,
                     System.Windows.Input.GestureEventArgs e)
            // Place blank image into imgHole1
            {
                string strImageSource = "Images/" + "bbFull1.png";  // fails here.
                BitmapImage bmi = new BitmapImage();
           
                bmi.UriSource = new Uri(strImageSource, UriKind.Absolute);
                imgHole1.Source = bmi;
                txtHole1.Text = "Blank";
            }

bbFull1.png is an image contained in the Project Images folder.

What is the proper syntax?

Thanks

Try adding a / in front of the Images like:
string strImageSource = "/Images/" + "bbFull1.png";

Open in new window

And try setting the UriKind to: UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute

Hi Dovberman;

I do not see why it would fail at this line in the code.

string strImageSource = "Images/" + "bbFull1.png";  // fails here.

seeming it is a string assignment

are you sure it is not failing here?

bmi.UriSource = new Uri(strImageSource, UriKind.Absolute);

This path, "Images/bbFull1.png", is NOT an Absolute path but a Relative path. And that states that the folder Images is in the same directory as the executable of the program, is that where it is?

Please post the exact exception and inner exception of the error you are getting.

Yes, it fails here:

bmi.UriSource = new Uri(strImageSource, UriKind.Absolute);

An exception of type 'System.UriFormatException' occurred in System.ni.dll but was not handled in user code


The Images directory is in the Project folder;

Solution ->PhoneApp1->Images->bbFull1.png

Thanks for your observation.

Try changing this line :

bmi.UriSource = new Uri(strImageSource, UriKind.Absolute);

to this :

bmi.UriSource = new Uri(strImageSource, UriKind.Relative);

As Guru_sami says above you are passing a relative path however you have specified a urikind as absolute.

try:

bmi.UriSource = new Uri(strImageSource, UriKind.Relative);
