Extension Methods
  NameDescription
Public Extension MethodHasMethod
Checks whether an object implements a method with the given name.
(Defined by ExtensionMethods.)
Public Extension MethodIsEqual
Compares two objects for equality, performing an elementwise comparison if the elements are vectors or matrices.
(Defined by Matrix.)
Public Extension MethodToTOverloaded.

Remarks

The Niblack filter is a local thresholding algorithm that separates white and black pixels given the local mean and standard deviation for the current window.

This filter implementation has been contributed by Diego Catalano.

Examples
Bitmap image = ... // Lena's picture

// Create a new Niblack threshold:
var niblack = new NiblackThreshold();

// Compute the filter
Bitmap result = niblack.Apply(image);

// Show on the screen
ImageBox.Show(result);

The resulting image is shown below:
