Building Graphical Interface Elements by Using the System.Drawing Namespace

Create a Windows form by using the Windows Forms Designer:

  • Build graphical interface elements by using the System.Drawing namespace.

The FCLs provide an advanced implementation of the Windows Graphics Design Interface (also known as GDI+). The GDI+ classes can be used to perform a variety of graphics-related tasks such as working with text, fonts, lines, shapes, and images. One of the main benefits of using GDI+ is that it allows you to work with Graphics objects without worrying about the specific details of the underlying platform. The GDI+ classes are distributed among four namespaces:

  • System.Drawing

  • System.Drawing.Drawing2D

  • System.Drawing.Imaging

  • System.Drawing.Text
