In one of my projects i have needed , a gdi+ drawing library for drawing simple geometrical shapes. So, found this graphical editor, KLONK Drawing Board . Its written in C# and GDI+ is used for drawing. It isnt a great component, but it was the most extensive open source project i 've found.It has many features , but it has no documentation and source code is a bit difficult to understand. I also couldn't find some shapes i need, such as Triangle . So , i've created my version , DrawingBoard2.
DrawingBoard2 is recomposed version of KLONK Drawing Board . A few features are also added.
What's new in this version?
- New polygon shapes are added : Triangles( Right triangle and , Equaliteral triangle) , Hexagon, Pentagon, Trapezoid and other polygons.
- Pie shape is added.
- Table is added.
- 3D Cube shape is added
- Cartesian Plane is added
- XML Serialization feature. Now shapes can be serialized/deserialized in XML format
- Bitmap export. Now , drawing board can be exported as bitmap file.
- Source code is recomposed , and documented
I thought this project and control pretty cool and the fact the source is available even cooler. This isn't the kind of control you see often...
Here's a snap of the sample project
And of it running (which ran for me the first time);
Here's just a taste of what can be drawn;
