Inside Macintosh: Imaging With QuickDraw /
Chapter 3 - QuickDraw Drawing / QuickDraw Drawing Reference


This section describes QuickDraw's routines for drawing lines, rectangles, rounded rectangles, ovals, arcs, wedges, polygons, and regions. This section also describes routines for calculating, scaling, mapping, copying bits between, and otherwise manipulating these graphic entities.

These routines use your current graphics port as their drawing environment. You can use these routines to draw into basic graphics ports (described in the chapter "Basic QuickDraw") and color graphics ports (described in the chapter "Color QuickDraw").

See the chapter "Pictures" for descriptions of routines that create and draw pictures. See the chapter "Cursor Utilities" for information about drawing cursors. See the chapter "QuickDraw Text" in Inside Macintosh: Text for descriptions of QuickDraw's routines for drawing and manipulating text.
