Not good in a pinch...


I should have realized that the Classroom in a Book series is exactly what it says - it is definietly NOT a resource guide for those with specific problems and pressing deadlines. It may be a good introduction for those with unlimited time, but as a professional, it has been more frustrating that useful.

A detailed explanation of GDI API


The book covers all aspects of GDI. The aspect I liked most is that it explains API function calls from a developer's perspective, highlighting bugs, discrepances or misunderstandings present in Microsoft GDI documentation. At the beginning it covers the internals of windows explaining how components are interconnected and showing the tools used to understand it.I liked the coverage of Bitmaps (loading and saving to disk, filtering and alpha blending), the detailed explanation of routines we take for granted (like simple lines, regions or fonts)...All the examples consist of a series of C++ reusable classes wrapping functionality
