Create a C# WinForm Application

By following steps below, you can create an image viewer WinForm Application.

Open or create a new WinForms application, add necessary dll library to the project's reference.


Add a new Form Item to the project, and choose to design mode sign. Make the ToolBox view show.

Right click the ToolBox panel, and select "Choose Items...", in the .NET Framework Components tab of pop-up dialog, click "Browse..." button to navigate the "RasterEdge.XImage.Raster.WinFormsControl.dll", and make sure the "ImageView" and "ThumbnailView" is checked.

Now the RasterEdge image view control appears in the ToolBox. Just drag and drop the "ImageView" and "ThumbnailView" items to your new Form control.

To make the ThumbnailView connect to the ImageView, add the following code to the Form Initialize method.

If you dont want to code yourself, you can also use our Image Viewer Demo. Please try the “RasterEdge.Demo.XImage.Raster.exe” in the download package.

Sample Code (winformcontrol demo code):

public Form1()
     this.thumbnailView1.ThumbImageIndexChanged += new RasterEdge.XImage.Raster.WinFormsControl.ThumbImageIndexChangedEventHandler(thumbnailView1_ThumbImageIndexChanged);
void  thumbnailView1_ThumbImageIndexChanged(object sender,  RasterEdge.XImage.Raster.WinFormsControl.ThumbImageIndexChangedEventArgs e)
     ThumbnailItem item = e.ThumbItem;
     this.imageView1.ShowImage(item, false);
