Issue with ImageHelper fixed

Nov 10, 2012 at 12:47 PM

For some reason accessing the pixel data directly from a Writeable Bitmap ended up broken in the last release - I'm assuming it may have a different internal encoding format, but streaming to a byte array and using that for saving worked, so the fixed code will be in the latest drop and I apologize for any inconvenience.

Do you mean the encoding issue will be fixed in next release of WinRT or the example will be fixed in next update to this codeplex project?

BTW, good job on book.  It has helped me get started on this new platform.

I noticed that in the fixed version, after you save the file you still cannot access it. Seems that even though you call flushAsync the file is still locked by the image helper program and you can't see it in other apps till the stream is closed, which you can do with stream.Dispose(). Close does not seem to be supported in .net store apps.
