Understanding Graphics-class and drawing in general


#1

Hey Folks!

I'm trying to get my head around how the graphics-class works. I need to say that I used cinder before, where for drawing you called something like gl::drawSolidRectangular(). So I was shure that I called a GL-function.

But I don't know what Graphics::fillRectangular() is doing, if it is basically the same???

Can anyone help me?

Thank you!

There must be literally thousands of examples of this in the demo projects and the codebase!

Try grepping the juce source tree for "void paint" or "Graphics&" or "g.fillRect" etc.. You'll find a whole bunch of paint methods that I'd have thought should be pretty self-explanatory. Not to mention the extensive help describing the Graphics class itself: http://www.juce.com/api/classGraphics.html
