The ImageViewer is a simple tool integrated in the Toradex standard OS image. It provides basic functionality to display a single image or a slideshow.

Command line parameters

If the tool is started without any command line parameters, a file-open dialog is displayed to select an image.

If there is any command line parameter given, the ImageViewer interprets it as a file name and tries to load this image.

Registry Settings

The following Registry settings can be defined to change the behavior of the tool:

"FitToWindow"=dword:00000000 ;0(default) = show image in its native resolution, 1 = scale the image to fit the window size.
"SlideShow"=dword:00000000 ;0(default) = display a single image, 1 = cycle through all images in the same folder.
"FullScreen"=dword:00000000 ;0(default) = show image in a regular window, 1 = display the picture in fullscreen.
"SlideTime"=dword:0x00002710 ;time[ms] that each picture is displayed in slideshow mode (default = 10,000 ms)

Note: ImageViewer is currently not supported on Windows Embedded Compact 2013.
