Control the size of the image in ToastPrompt?

Mar 10, 2013 at 1:42 AM

I'm trying to get the ToastPrompt to size the image provided in the ImageSource property. The image I'm providing to it is much bigger than what I want displayed. Is there anyway to get the control to shrink the displayed size of the image? I'd like to specify say a 50x50 display size.

Thanks in advance.

The easy WP8 solution would be to shift your BitmapImage slightly to include DecodePixelHeight and Width. This then reduces the image size as well in-app memory while the image is being displayed.
return new ToastPrompt
    Message = LongText,
    ImageSource = new BitmapImage(new Uri("../../media/c4f_26x26.png", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute)) { DecodePixelHeight = 50, DecodePixelWidth = 50 };
You could also alter the style, or I could add in a property for this as well.

I am actually using this for windows phone 7... would you be able to add in a property in that version? It would really help me out :) If not, how do I alter the style so I can make the image smaller?

Thanks in advance
