Usage

import BitmapFactory = require("nativescript-bitmap-factory");
import KnownColors = require("color/known-colors");

// create a bitmap with 640x480
var bmp = BitmapFactory.create(640, 480);

// work with bitmap and
// keep sure to free memory
// after we do not need it anymore
bmp.dispose(() => {
// draw an oval with a size of 300x150
// and start at position x=0, y=75
// and use
// "red" as border color and "black" as background color.
bmp.drawOval("300x150", "0,75",
KnownColors.Red, KnownColors.Black);

// draw a circle with a radius of 80
// at the center of the bitmap (null => default)
// and use
// "dark green" as border color
bmp.drawCircle(80, null,
KnownColors.DarkGreen);

// draws an arc with a size of 100x200
// at x=10 and y=20
// beginning at angle 0 with a sweep angle of 90 degrees
// and a black border and a yellow fill color
bmp.drawArc("100x200", "10,20",
0, 90,
KnownColors.Black, KnownColors.Yellow);

// set a yellow point at x=160, y=150
bmp.setPoint("160,150", "ff0");

// draws a line from (0|150) to (300|75)
// with blue color
bmp.drawLine("0,150", "300,75", '#0000ff');

// writes a text in yellow color
// at x=100, y=100
// by using "Roboto" as font
// with a size of 10
bmp.writeText("This is a test!", "100,100", {
color: KnownColors.Yellow,
size: 10,
name: "Roboto"
});

// returns the current bitmap as data URL
// which can be used as ImageSource
// in JPEG format with a quality of 75%
var data = bmp.toDataUrl(BitmapFactory.OutputFormat.JPEG, 75);

// ... and in Base64 format
var base64JPEG = bmp.toBase64(BitmapFactory.OutputFormat.JPEG, 75);

// ... and as ImageSource
var imgSrc = bmp.toImageSource();
});

Functions

Name Description
asBitmap Returns a value as wrapped bitmap.
create Creates a new bitmap instance.
getDefaultOptions Returns the default options for creating a new bitmap.
makeMutable A helper function that keeps sure to return a native image object that is able to be used as wrapped bitmap object.
setDefaultOptions Sets the default options for creating a new bitmap.

Platform specific stuff

You can access the nativeObject property to access the platform specific object.

For Android this is a Bitmap object and for iOS this is an UIImage object.

To check the platform you can use the android and ios properties which have the same values as the corresponding properties from application core module.

Android

You also can access the underlying Canvas object by __canvas property.

iOS

You also can access the underlying CGImage object by__CGImage property.

Data types

IArgb

Stores data of an RGB value with alpha value.

These values can also be submitted as strings (like #ff0 or ffffff) or numbers.

interface IArgb {
/**
* Gets the alpha value.
*/
a: number;

/**
* Gets the red value.
*/
r: number;

/**
* Gets the green value.
*/
g: number;

/**
* Gets the blue value.
*/
b: number;
}

IBitmapData

Used by toObject() method.

interface IBitmapData {
/**
* Gets the data as Base64 string.
*/
base64: string;

/**
* Gets the mime type.
*/
mime: string;
}

IFont

Font settings.

interface IFont {
/**
* Anti alias or not.
*/
antiAlias?: boolean;

/**
* Gets the custom forground color.
*/
color?: string | number | IArgb;

/**
* Gets the name.
*/
name?: string;

/**
* Gets the size.
*/
size?: number;
}

IPoint2D

Coordinates, can also be a string like 0,0 or 150|300.

interface IPoint2D {
/**
* Gets the X coordinate.
*/
x: number;

/**
* Gets the Y coordinate.
*/
y: number;
}

IPoint2D

Size, can also be a string like 0,0 or 150x300.

interface ISize {
/**
* Gets the height.
*/
height: number;

/**
* Gets the width.
*/
width: number;
}

OutputFormat

Supported output formats.

enum OutputFormat {
/**
* PNG
*/
PNG = 1,

/**
* JPEG
*/
JPEG = 2,
}
