How do I make an Image fill it's parent grid size in WPF?

Hi:

I've got the following scenario in WPF
I have a StackPanel --> Grid --> Image.

1) I would like the image to fill the available space in the grid (stretch/scale?)

2) I would like the grid to fill the available space in the StackPanel

I assign the image's source dynamically at runtime.
The image dimensions are 640 X 480.
I would like the image centered in the grid, but filling the width/height of the grid.

Here is a snippet of XAML that I am using:
            <StackPanel Name="stackPanelImage" Orientation="Vertical" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch">
                <Grid Name="imageDisplayGrid" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" >
                    <Image Name="imageDisplay" Width="auto" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center"  Height="auto" Visibility="Hidden" Stretch="Uniform"/>
                </Grid>
            </StackPanel>

How do I achieve this?

Thanks,

Try this.

 <Border.Background>
            <ImageBrush Name="image" Stretch="UniformToFill"/>
 </Border.Background>
