Default C# Graphics Programming Wrox Blox by Rod Stephens

Graphics programming is one of those topics that there's always latent demand for, but never quite enough demand to support the costs involved in a printed book, especially when it comes to graphics programming in specific languages. This is another great case where we're really excited about being able to provide programmers with some content in Wrox Blox that would have been hard to deliver as books.

Rod Stephens has written the Wrox Blox C# Graphics Programming (69 pages) selling for just $6.99 (PDF download). It covers:

How to add graphics to C# 2008 applications, explaining fundamental graphics techniques such as:
  • Drawing shapes with different colors and line styles
  • Filling areas with colors, gradients, and patterns
  • Drawing text that is properly aligned, sized, and clipped exactly where you want it
  • Manipulating images and saving results in bitmap, JPEG, and other types of files
  • Transforming graphics (move, stretch, or rotate graphics)
  • WPF graphics, XAML, and FlowDocuments
  • 35 example programs written in C# 2008, although most of the code works in previous versions of C# as well. (WPF graphics and FlowDocuments,require WPF provided in .NET Framework 3.0 and later. )

Rod Stephens is a real Wrox Star and it's great to have him writing these Wrox Blox.
