In this chapter, we'll look at the Graphical Device Interface (GDI) used by Windows Forms to create graphics. Notice the name is GDI+ not GDI.NET. This is because GDI+ is not solely a .NET Framework API. It can also be used by unmanaged code. For the purposes of this chapter however, we'll use it exclusively from Windows Forms.
