GDI+ Programming in C# and VB.NET

GDI+ both wraps arcane API calls and extends them for much easier use. Programmers no longer have to make do with the familiar but simplistic VB 6.0 drawing model, nor do they have to dig down into the GDI API in order to get any real work done. In GDI+, Microsoft has come up with a complete, but still extensible, set of classes for all of the .NET programmer's drawing needs. GDI+ requires different techniques than the Windows GDI API, as it is completely stateless. GDI+ Programming in C#and VB .NET starts out with an explanation of GDI+ and how it relates to GDI. The book then dives deep into the GDI+ namespaces and classes. The book begins with basic drawing in the early chapters and then explains in an understandable manner more complex drawing techniques, including paths, gradients, alpha blends, matrix operations, and transformations. Later chapters cover how to work with bitmaps and other images, as well as advanced drawing and printing techniques....
