ImageEx XAML Control

The ImageEx Control downloads images asynchronously, while showing a loading indicator. Source images are then stored in the application's local cache to preserve resources and load time. ImageEx also extends the default Image Platform control to improve performance through caching. You can also use a placeholder image that will be displayed will loading the main image.

Syntax


<controls:ImageEx Name="ImageExControl"
    IsCacheEnabled="True"
    PlaceholderSource="/assets/thumbnails/thumbnails.png"
    Source="/assets/bigPicture.png"
/>
