Image Save In XML and Load XML Bitmap Image File in Windows Application Using C#.Net

9/29/2014 - By Pranav Singh 2

This article will show you how you can convert the image into bitmap image and save it into xml file and how you can reload the xml saved bitmap image into image form using c#.net in windows application.


So for this article first we will create a new windows application and add some controls in it.


Now create an xml folder in you bin-> debug folder


Now add the below code into you code end.

using System;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Xml.Linq;
using System.Xml;
using System.IO;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication8
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }
        ///
        /// Image Save In XML and Load XML Bitmap Image File in Windows Application Using C#.Net
             ///
        ///
        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {


            using (OpenFileDialog ofd = new OpenFileDialog())
            {
                if (ofd.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
                {
                    textBox1.Text = ofd.FileName;
                }
            }
        }

        private void button3_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            try
            {
                Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(textBox1.Text);
                TypeConverter converter = TypeDescriptor.GetConverter(typeof(Bitmap));
                string image = Convert.ToBase64String((byte[])converter.ConvertTo(bmp, typeof(byte[])));
                XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter("XMLFile/PrintLabelList.xml", System.Text.Encoding.UTF8);
                writer.WriteStartDocument(true);
                writer.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;
                writer.Indentation = 2;
                writer.WriteStartElement("ImageBitMap");
                writer.WriteStartElement("ImageDetail");
                writer.WriteStartElement("Image");
                writer.WriteString(image);
                writer.WriteEndElement();
                writer.WriteEndElement();
                writer.WriteEndElement();
                writer.Close();
                MessageBox.Show("File converted successfully.");
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                MessageBox.Show(ex.Message.ToString());
            }
        }

        private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            XDocument doc = XDocument.Load("XMLFile/PrintLabelList.xml");
            var records = (from lablemname in doc.Root.Elements("ImageDetail")
                           select new
                           {
                               Image = (string)lablemname.Element("Image").Value
                           }).FirstOrDefault();
            if (records != null)
            {
                string val = records.Image;
                byte[] bytes = Convert.FromBase64String(val);
                MemoryStream mem = new MemoryStream(bytes);
                Bitmap bmp2 = new Bitmap(mem);
                pictureBox1.Image = bmp2;
            }
        }
    }
}

   
In above code first I have written the code to browse the file and then converted the image into bit map image and saved it into XML file.

Now on load button click I have again loaded the file from xml and converted the bitmap image into image using c#.

So we have done have a look of this output.

In above I have browsed the file and then converted it into bitmap image and saved it into xml. Here is the xml file.
