Microsoft’s managed GDI+ documentation divides its functionality into three categories: 2D vector graphics, imaging, and typography. This book divides the GDI+ functionality into five categories:
2D vector graphics
Vector graphics concerns the drawing of shapes that can be specified by sets of points on a coordinate system. Such shapes are called primitives; examples include lines, curves, rectangles, and paths. In managed GDI+, a class object or structure represents a graphics primitive. Each class or structure provides members that can be used to get and set a primitive’s properties. For example, the Point structure provides X and Y properties ...
