I was investigating the use of the WriteableBitmap class and came across a great extension pack WriteableBitMapEx.
This also pointed me to a great demo written by Bill Reiss, explaining Blitting and Blending of images with the WriteableBitmap class. His original example was written in Silverlight and I was interested to see how easy it would be to port it to the Windows Phone and see how the performance would be.
Well it was really easy! I didn’t need to rewrite any code and hadn’t any problems with performance (in the emulator – Sadly enough i don’t have an actual Windows Phone yet)!
Here is the result:
Try it out yourself, here is the sourcecode of the Windows Phone solution:
Windows Phone development made easy! I love it that I don’t need to learn a new programming language to make my own phone apps!
