The PopupImageEdit control represents an editor that displays an image within a dropdown window.


Its features include:

  • Supported Image Formats - Bitmap, JPEG, GIF and PNG.
  • Configurable Image Size - an image can be resized to fill the image box, stretched or shrunk to fit the size of the dropdown (PopupImageEdit.Stretch).
  • Built-in Menu -end-users can cut, copy, paste, delete, load or save an image. It's also possible to remove the default commands and/or add custom commands (via templates). This menu is automatically shown when the mouse pointer enters the image, and is automatically hidden when the mouse pointer leaves the image (PopupImageEdit.ShowMenu).
  • Auto-Sizing Image Popup - if the size of an image is smaller than the size of an editor's popup window, the image popup is automatically resized to fit the image size.
  • Easy Image Loading - clicking within an image editor shows the Open dialog allowing you to select an image. This behavior is controlled by the PopupImageEdit.ShowLoadDialogOnClickMode property.
  • Menu Templates - use the PopupImageEdit.MenuTemplate and PopupImageEdit.MenuContainerTemplate properties, to provide a custom menu appearance.
  • Localizable UI
