Example

Here we create an image and add it to the canvas. The Canvas is automatically sized to display the image.

[C#]Canvas canvas = new Canvas();
XImage image = XImage.FromFile(Server.MapPath("rez/boat.gif"));
canvas.DrawImage(image, new DrawOptions());
canvas.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("Canvas_DrawImage_75.png"));


[Visual Basic]Dim canvas As New Canvas()
Dim image As XImage = XImage.FromFile(Server.MapPath("rez/boat.gif"))
canvas.DrawImage(image, New DrawOptions())
canvas.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("Canvas_DrawImage_75.png"))
