In this article we will discuss how to access the Image Library in Silverlight in Windows Phone 7.

Step 1

First we click on File:-> New Project. Here we select the Silverlight for Windows Phone application and then we select Windows Phone application:

Step 2


After that we take two controls (Image and TextBox). Here an image is used to display the images which we want to access and a TextBox is used to set the value in our program. Here we set the value and the visibility of the TextBox is Collapsed:

<Grid x:Name="ContentPanel" Grid.Row="1" Margin="12,1,12,-1">

            <Image Height="361" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="69,106,0,0" Name="image1" Stretch="Fill" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="304"  ManipulationStarted="image1_ManipulationStarted" />

            <TextBox Height="72" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="10,10,0,0" Name="textBox1" Text="1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="460" Visibility="Collapsed" />

        </Grid>

Step 3


Now we will take an Images folder in our program and set the images:

Step 4

After that we write the following code in the .cs page:

 

public MainPage()

{

    InitializeComponent();

    image1.Source = (ImageSource)new ImageSourceConverter().ConvertFromString("Images/Desert.jpg");

}

 

private void image1_ManipulationStarted(object sender, ManipulationStartedEventArgs e)

{

    if (textBox1.Text=="1")

    {

        image1.Source = (ImageSource)new ImageSourceConverter().ConvertFromString("Images/Jellyfish.jpg");

        textBox1.Text = "2";

    }

          

    else if (textBox1.Text=="2")

    {

        image1.Source = (ImageSource)new ImageSourceConverter().ConvertFromString("Images/Lighthouse.jpg");

        textBox1.Text = "3";

    }

 

    else if (textBox1.Text == "3")

    {

        image1.Source = (ImageSource)new ImageSourceConverter().ConvertFromString("Images/Koala.jpg");

        textBox1.Text = "4";

    }

    else if (textBox1.Text == "4")

    {

        image1.Source = (ImageSource)new ImageSourceConverter().ConvertFromString("Images/Lighthouse.jpg");

        textBox1.Text = "5";

    }

    else if (textBox1.Text == "5")

    {

        image1.Source = (ImageSource)new ImageSourceConverter().ConvertFromString("Images/Hydrangeas.jpg");

        textBox1.Text = "6";

    }

    else if (textBox1.Text == "6")

    {

        image1.Source = (ImageSource)new ImageSourceConverter().ConvertFromString("Images/Chrysanthemum.jpg");

        textBox1.Text = "7";

    }

    else if (textBox1.Text == "7")

    {

        image1.Source = (ImageSource)new ImageSourceConverter().ConvertFromString("Images/Penguins.jpg");

        textBox1.Text = "8";

    }

    else if (textBox1.Text == "8")

    {

        image1.Source = (ImageSource)new ImageSourceConverter().ConvertFromString("Images/tulips.jpg");

    }

}


So when we click on the Images the next Image will be shown according to the value of the TextBox.
