How to load the image annotated with shapes and text on the image editor.

Platform: WPF |
Control: SfImageEditor

This section explains how to annotate the image with shapes (Circle, Rectangle, Arrow, Path) and text programmatically on loading itself.

To add shape / text on loading the image,  you need to invoke the ImageLoaded event as shown in the below snippet.


  <editor:SfImageEditor x:Name="editor" 
                              ImageLoaded="SfImageEditor_Loaded" ImageSource="Assets\RoadView.jpeg">           


Add the required shapes or text along with its customization such as color, stroke and its position either using PenSettings or TextSettings in the loaded event a shown in the below code.


        /// <summary>
        /// Invoked when the image in the <see cref="SfImageEditor"/> is loaded.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="sender">Image editor</param>
        /// <param name="e">event arguments</param>
        private void SfImageEditor_Loaded(object sender, ImageLoadedEventArgs e)
            editor.AddShape(ShapeType.Circle, new PenSettings()
                Bounds = new Rect(10, 15, 20, 20),
                Stroke = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.BlueViolet)
            editor.AddText("Good Morning", new TextSettings()
                FontFamily = new FontFamily("Consolas"),
                TextEffects = TextEffects.Italic,
                Bounds = new Rect(45, 30, 25, 25),
