Hello everyone.

The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.

There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality.

If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.

And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Downloading an 2D Image


On startup of App, I want to download an 2D image from REST API, and Display it on HoloLens, How can I do it, any algorithm or code snippet will be much appreciated.


  • @ManojTalreja,
    Are you wanting to get the image from the HoloLens running the app or another web site?
    If you want an image from the HoloLens, I would recommend accessing the Pictures library instead of using the REST API.
    If you are accessing a web site, the specifics of how to do that will vary based on the site's implementation (if any) of a REST API to download images.
