GetReadOnlyPixels not accessible

Aug 19, 2016 at 2:00 PM
Just getting started with Magick.NET, so sorry if this is blatantly obvious: in VisualStudio 2015, I've been able to create and draw on a MagickImage, but when following the
using (PixelCollection p = image.GetReadOnlyPixels())
template used in many examples, I keep getting a 'MagickImage does not contain a definition for GetReadOnlyPixels()' error. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

In the newer builds, GetReadOnlyPixels() has been replaced by GetPixels(). Just swap the methods in the code and it should compile.

Is there a place to look up information such as this one?

I try to document the breaking changes here:

This is slightly different from the original subject but still along the same lines. I can now make code like this work:
                              new DrawableFillColor(MagickColors.Transparent), // no fill 
                              new DrawableStrokeColor(MagickColors.Gray),
                              new DrawableStrokeWidth(width / 480),
                              new DrawableLine(width / 3, 0, width / 3, height),
                              new DrawableLine(width * 2 / 3, 0, width * 2 / 3, height),
                              new DrawableLine(0, height / 3, width, height / 3),
                              new DrawableLine(0, height * 2 / 3, width, height * 2 / 3)
but since I need to draw multiple lines in a loop, I looked at another code example dlemstra suggested (in 2013),
using (MagickImage img = new MagickImage(path))
    List<DrawableBase> drawables = new List<DrawableBase>();
    drawables.Add(new DrawableFont("Comic Sans Is Evil", FontStyleType.Italic, FontWeight.Weight400, FontStretch.Normal));
    drawables.Add(new DrawableFillColor(new MagickColor(10, 10, 10)));
    drawables.Add(new DrawableText(50, 15, "Shafi"));
then checked the change log and found that version renamed DrawableBase to Drawable, only to find that the example wouldn't work with Drawable, either. ("The type or namespace name 'Drawable' could not be found") I can't seem to find any further related info in the change log. What else do I need to change to make the example work, and is there a library of current code examples that goes beyond the (useful, but not extensive) code examples included on the documentation page?

I wish there was a page with code examples but I don't have the time to create one. Instead of a list of DrawableBase instances you should use the new interface IDrawable.

Appreciate the info.
