Specify the decoding mode for an image

  1. Import the required class.
    import net.rim.device.api.system.EncodedImage;
  2. Invoke EncodedImage.setDecodeMode() using one of the following modes as a parameter:
    • Use DECODE_ALPHA to decode an alpha channel, if one exists (this is the default mode).
    • Use DECODE_NATIVE to force decoding of the bitmap image to the native bitmap image type of the BlackBerry® Device Software.
    • Use DECODE_READONLY to mark the decoded bitmap image as read-only.
