Hour 9. Programming with Graphics


Visual C++ .NET has a new graphics API, GDI+, for use in developing graphically advanced applications. This new graphics API provides features to your applications that were not available previously, except through third-party vendors. These features include antialiasing, multiple graphic file formats, transparent brushes and pens, and many other features.

The GDI+ API is available to traditional unmanaged C++ applications and is also available through the .NET Framework. In this hour's lesson, you will learn how to write applications using both MFC and the .NET Framework with the GDI+ API.

Specifically, in this hour you will:

  • Review the GDI+ API and its architecture

  • Create a .NET application that performs simple GDI+ painting

  • Create the equivalent MFC application using GDI+

  • Optimize the painting with GDI+ to remove flicker
