When i load this geotiff into my ArcgisRuntime UWP app i have black borders where there are no valid pixels.  When i load the same geotiff into arcgisPro, i get transparent borders.

Is there a way to show these "non-valid pixels" as transparent in my arcgis runtime UWP app?

 

geotiff under question is attached.

Try setting the background color with a Raster Function - example code below.

 

async Task AddRasterAndSetBackgroundColorValue() 
{
    try
    {
        // Create a raster dataset from a local file raster.
        Raster raster = new Raster(@"..\FileRaster.tif");

        // Await the Load to catch any errors.
        await raster.LoadAsync();

        // Create a raster function from the JSON string using the static/Shared method called: RasterFunction.FromJson(json as String)
        RasterFunction rasterFunction = RasterFunction.FromJson(jsonFunction);

        // Get the raster function arguments
        RasterFunctionArguments rasterFunctionArguments = rasterFunction.Arguments;
                
        // Get the list of raster names from the raster function arguments.
        IReadOnlyList<string> rasterNames = rasterFunctionArguments.GetRasterNames();

        // Set the local file raster as a raster name argument.
        rasterFunctionArguments.SetRaster(rasterNames[0], raster);

        // Create a new raster based on the raster function.
        Raster rasterWithFunction = new Raster(rasterFunction);

        // Create a new raster layer from the raster with function applied.
        RasterLayer rasterLayer = new RasterLayer(rasterWithFunction);

        // Add RasterLayer with function to Map OperationalLayers collection.
        Map.OperationalLayers.Add(rasterLayer);
    }
    catch (Exception ex)
    {

    }
}

string jsonFunction =
@"{
    ""raster_function"":{""type"":""Mask_function""},
    ""raster_function_arguments"":
    {
        ""nodata_values"":{""double_array"":[0],""type"":""Raster_function_variable""},
