In this movie, we will set up some properties and methods for our slideshow…view class. The first thing that we are going to do is create some more…properties above the Container property that we already created. I'm going to…create a private property called Loader. That's going to be an instance of the…Loader class. We won't give it a value yet. We will just declare it.…Create another private property called bmp. That's going to be a bitmap image.…The Loader is going to be the object that does all the loading of all the files.…The Bitmap object is basically going to hold copied bitmap data from the Loader…object and fade that out when the user picks a new slide to look at. The way…that it will be organized is that there is only one loader instance loading the…file and one bitmap image.…
One of the alternatives is to create a new loader instance every time we load a file, …but that can create a memory issue. This way, we have one loader instance…and one bitmap and the application is optimized. We will look at more about how…
