Implementing globalization, drawing, and text manipulation functionality in a .NET Framework application
- Enhance the user interface of a .NET Framework application by using the System.Drawing namespace.
- Enhance the user interface of a .NET Framework application by using brushes, pens, colors, and fonts.
- Enhance the user interface of a .NET Framework application by using graphics, images, bitmaps, and icons.
- Enhance the user interface of a .NET Framework application by using shapes and sizes.
The System.Drawing Namespace provides access to GDI+ basic graphic functionality.
The Brush Class is used to define objects used to fill the interiors of graphical shapes such as rectangles, ellipses, pies, polygons, and paths.
The Pen Class Defines an object used to draw lines and curves.
The Color Structure Represents an ARGB color.
The Font Class defines a particular format for text, including font face, size, and style attributes.
The Graphics class represents a GDI+ drawing surface.
The Image Class is the base class for the Bitmap and Metafile classes. The Bitmap Class encapsulates the GDI+ Bitmap which is used to display pictures defined by pixel data.
The Icon Class represents a Windows icon, which is a small bitmap image used to represent an object. Icons can be thought of as transparent bitmaps, although their size is determined by the system.
The Rectangle Structure stores a set of four integers that represent the location and size of a rectangle.
The Size Structure stores an ordered pair of integers, usually the width and height of a rectangle.
