BitmapDataExtensionsGetColorCountAsync Method

Gets the actual number of colors of the specified bitmapData asynchronously. Colors are counted even for indexed bitmaps.


Namespace: KGySoft.Drawing.Imaging
Assembly: KGySoft.Drawing.Core (in KGySoft.Drawing.Core.dll) Version: 8.1.0
public static Task<int> GetColorCountAsync(
	this IReadableBitmapData bitmapData,
	TaskConfig? asyncConfig = null


bitmapData  IReadableBitmapData
The bitmap, whose colors have to be counted to count its colors.
asyncConfig  TaskConfig  (Optional)
The configuration of the asynchronous operation such as cancellation, reporting progress, etc. When Progress is set in this parameter, then this library always passes a DrawingOperation instance to the generic methods of the IAsyncProgress interface. This parameter is optional.
Default value: .

Return Value

A task that represents the asynchronous operation. Its result is the actual number of colors of the specified bitmapData, or 0, if the operation was canceled and the ThrowIfCanceled property of the asyncConfig parameter was .

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IReadableBitmapData. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).


This method is not a blocking call, though the operation is not parallelized and the MaxDegreeOfParallelism property of the asyncConfig parameter is ignored.


See the Remarks section of the GetColorCount method for more details.
