GDI+ The Next Generation Graphics Interface

Welcome to the graphics world of GDI+, the next-generation graphics device interface. GDI+ is the gateway to interact with graphics device interfaces in the .NET Framework. If you're going to write .NET applications that interact with graphics devices such as monitors, printers, or files, you will have to use GDI+.

This chapter will introduce GDI+. First we will discuss the theoretical aspects of GDI+, which you should know before starting to write a graphics application.

After reading this chapter, you should understand the following topics:

  • What GDI+ is
  • How GDI+ is defined
  • How to use GDI+ in your applications
  • What's new in GDI+
  • What the major programming differences between GDI and GDI+ are
