Image View

The Image View is a class which loads the images from a different source in our Android phone and it displays the attributes of the Images.


An intent is an abstract description of an operation to be performed. It can be used with startActivity to launch an activity and startService or bindService to communicate with a background Service.

Follow the steps given below.

  1. Create the new project from an Android template and name it, as per your desire. I named it ImageSelect and subsequently choose the location to store your project.

  2. Choose the button from the toolbar. Drag and drop the button into Main.Xaml page.

  3. Now, again choose ImageView from the toolbar. Drag and drop it in Main.xaml.

  4. Copy and paste the given Main.Xaml page in the Designer page to get the required image.

  5. Now, we need MainActivity.cs Code to select the image through the Intent Service.

  6. Subsequently rebuild the project and once built, finishing the execution process will begin and the output comes.
