    Hi

    I do know that silverlight only supports for jpeg and png. However, in a real business scene, most of companies will use the tiff image because of multiple supported pages. I did see other third-party companies(http://igsldemo.cloudapp.net/) did provide a sivlerlight control to handle tiff image for their silverlight product.
    I wonder whether telerik has any plan to provide support Tiff file for your Image Editor or not(currently, trying your demo and i don't think it supports the tiff)
    or can you recommend me a way of showing Multiple paged tiff file?

    right now, i have to convert my Bit[] of the tiff file stored in database to the Jpeg format on the server side before sending it to silverlight side for display. However it only shows one page(not multiple page)

    thanks

    Hi Edward Pauley,

    We have specifically created an extensible framework for format providers, so you can plug your own image decoder. You can use a third-party library to decode a specific page of the TIFF to a RadBitmap and then the image editor will be able to use it. As RadImageEditor doesn't support multiple pages, however, you'll have to provide additional UI to enable the user to choose a page to view / edit.
    For the import/export, you have to implement the IImageFormatProvider interface and call the static ImageFormatProviderManager.RegisterFormatProvider method.
    We will add TIFF support in our feature request list, but I cannot give you a specific timeframe for it.

    All the best,

    Hi Ivailo,

    it is really a good news that telerik considers to support tiff image for silverlight.

    I guess I have to wait for that feature

    thanks
