GDI+ Programming in C# and VB.NET

GDI+ Programming in C# and VB.NET Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

GDI+ is a departure from graphics programming using the Windows GDI API. GDI+ both wraps the arcane API calls and extends them for much easier use. No longer do programmers have to make do with the familiar but very light VB6 drawing model, nor do they have to dig down into the GDI API to get any real work done. Microsoft has come up with a complete, but still extensible, set of classes to help with programmers drawing needs. GDI+ Programming in C# and VB .NET starts out with an explanation of GDI+ and how it relates to GDI. Nick Symmonds also includes a chapter on common ways to draw using VB6 and C++. The book then delves deep into the GDI+ namespaces and classes - basic drawing is discussed first, with later chapters going deeper into more complex drawing. Paths, gradients, alpha blends, matrix operations, and transformations are all explained in understandable detail. Later chapters discuss working with bitmaps and other images, drawing, and printing. The final two chapters are devoted to useful projects that tie up the subject matter of the previous chapters in real world examples. Throughout GDI+ Programming in C# and VB .NET the author not only explains the different namespaces and classes relating to GDI+, but he also takes time to talk about best practices concerning graphics programming. Woven throughout the book are numerous examples that tie together different aspects of programming in .NET, teaching programmers how to get the best possible speed and efficiency out of their code.

Book News Annotation:

This guide to GDI+ explains the different namespaces and classes relating to GDI+ and describes the connection between GDI+ and GDI. The book identifies the base practices in programming and details drawing techniques, including paths, gradients, alpha blends, matrix operations, and transformations. Numerous examples appear throughout the text, linking different aspects of programming in .NET. Symmonds is a software engineer.
