How to create a raster stretch renderer


Creating a raster stretch renderer

Do the following steps to create a raster stretch renderer:
  1. Define the color ramp's from and to colors.
  2. Create the color ramp.
  3. Create a stretch renderer.
  4. Set the renderer properties.
  5. Set the stretch type.

    See the following code example:
[C#]
public IRasterRenderer StretchRenderer(ESRI.ArcGIS.Geodatabase.IRasterDataset
    rasterDataset)
{
    try
    {
        //Define the from and to colors for the color ramp.
        IRgbColor fromColor=new RgbColorClass();
        fromColor.Red=255;
        fromColor.Green=0;
        fromColor.Blue=0;
        IColor toColor=new RgbColorClass();
        fromColor.Red=0;
        fromColor.Green=255;
        fromColor.Blue=0;
        //Create the color ramp.
        IAlgorithmicColorRamp colorRamp=new AlgorithmicColorRampClass();
        colorRamp.Size=255;
        colorRamp.FromColor=fromColor;
        colorRamp.ToColor=toColor;
        bool createColorRamp;
        colorRamp.CreateRamp(out createColorRamp);
        //Create a stretch renderer.
        IRasterStretchColorRampRenderer stretchRenderer=new
            RasterStretchColorRampRendererClass();
        IRasterRenderer rasterRenderer=(IRasterRenderer)stretchRenderer;
        //Set the renderer properties.
        IRaster raster=rasterDataset.CreateDefaultRaster();
        rasterRenderer.Raster=raster;
        rasterRenderer.Update();
        stretchRenderer.BandIndex=0;
        stretchRenderer.ColorRamp=colorRamp;
        //Set the stretch type.
        IRasterStretch stretchType=(IRasterStretch)rasterRenderer;
        stretchType.StretchType =
            esriRasterStretchTypesEnum.esriRasterStretch_StandardDeviations;
        stretchType.StandardDeviationsParam=2;
        return rasterRenderer;
    }
    catch (Exception ex)
    {
        System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(ex.Message);
        return null;
    }
}
[VB.NET]
Public Function StretchRenderer(ByVal rasterDataset As ESRI.ArcGIS.GeodataMyBase.IRasterDataset) As IRasterRenderer
    Try
    'Define the from and to colors for the color ramp.
    Dim fromColor As IRgbColor=New RgbColorClass()
    fromColor.Red=255
    fromColor.Green=0
    fromColor.Blue=0
    Dim toColor As IColor=New RgbColorClass()
    fromColor.Red=0
    fromColor.Green=255
    fromColor.Blue=0
    
    'Create the color ramp.
    Dim colorRamp As IAlgorithmicColorRamp=New AlgorithmicColorRampClass()
    colorRamp.Size=255
    colorRamp.FromColor=fromColor
    colorRamp.ToColor=toColor
    Dim createColorRamp As Boolean
    colorRamp.CreateRamp( createColorRamp)
    
    'Create a stretch renderer.
    Dim stretchRenderer As IRasterStretchColorRampRenderer=New RasterStretchColorRampRendererClass()
    Dim rasterRenderer As IRasterRenderer=CType(stretchRenderer, IRasterRenderer)
    
    'Set the renderer properties.
    Dim raster As IRaster=rasterDataset.CreateDefaultRaster()
    rasterRenderer.Raster=raster
    rasterRenderer.Update()
    stretchRenderer.BandIndex=0
    stretchRenderer.ColorRamp=colorRamp
    
    'Set the stretch type.
    Dim stretchType As IRasterStretch=CType(rasterRenderer, IRasterStretch)
    stretchType.StretchType=esriRasterStretchTypesEnum.esriRasterStretch_StandardDeviations
    stretchType.StandardDeviationsParam=2
    
    Return rasterRenderer
    Catch ex As Exception
    System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(ex.Message)
    Return Nothing
    End Try
End Function
