C++/MFC Graphics

I'm working on a project that requires drawing binary trees, graphs and
modular layouts. The user needs to have the ability to output these drawings
to a file. A lot of the application has already been developed using MFC.
I don't have much experience with graphics programming so if anyone could

Why not use the standard GDI calls. Should be good enough for drawing lines
circles etc.

Any windows programming book would do for instance charles petzold's
"programmin g windows".

To save it you can use you can write to the device context and save it as
WMF file or you can use the CreateDIBSectio n function to write to a bitmap
that is made from you own off screen buffer. You can then use GDI calls to
draw to it and save it as a bitmap or use pnglib or the jpeg library to save
it as png or jpeg file.

Hello All, I am attempting to learn a bit about the GDI+ transforms and charting data and I feel like I'm getting a handle on how the transforms work. My chart object has a large "canvas" bitmap that all data is scaled to and rendered on, and I display a smaller "window" of the canvas that the user can page through left and right. I've been able to scale my data (for the purposes of this discussion, x values are 0 - 2PI and y values...

At the moment I'm using Borland's C++ (http://www.borland.com/products/downloads/download_cbuilder.html#) I want to be able to take an array of points and plot them on the screen. Is there a way to do this? E.g. I want to be able to graph a function. At this point I'm not up to a level in C++ where I want to start learning Visual C++ so I don't want to go that route. Thanks

The method for printing documents in .Net can be confusing, especially for newer users. I would like to create a way to simplify this process. My idea would be implemented using a PrintDocument (much like the current model), but my PrintDocument would have a Pages collection such that each time you need to have an additional page, you would just add another page to the collection and then use the page object for the actual drawing etc. ...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
