Re: Anti-Aliased 2D drawing

There is an example in the demos directory of the libgnomecanvas

You may also want to have a look at the documentation for the
GGAD book, which, although for Gnome-1 still has some valid code
for the gnome canvas. Look for the create_canvas_items() function
at: . It shows
you the basic method:

   /* Create the canvas and set it up so that 0,0 is in the topleft   
    * corner.
   GtkWidget *canvas = gnome_canvas_new_aa();
                               CANVAS_WIDTH, CANVAS_HEIGHT);
                                  0.0, 0.0, CANVAS_WIDTH, CANVAS_HEIGHT);

   /* Get the root group */
   GnomeCanvasGroup *root = gnome_canvas_root(GNOME_CANVAS(canvas));

   /* Read the image into a pixbuf */
   GdkPixbuf *pb = gdk_pixbuf_new_from_file(image, &err);
   /* Create an canvas item containing the image */
   image = gnome_canvas_item_new (root,
                                  gnome_canvas_pixbuf_get_type (),
                                   "pixbuf", pb,
                                   "x", 0.0,
                                   "y", 0.0,
                                   "width", (double) gdk_pixbuf_get_width(pb),
                                   "height", (double) gdk_pixbuf_get_height(pb),

   /* create lines etc on top of the image *
   GnomeCanvasPoints* points = gnome_canvas_points_new (2);

   points->coords[0] = 0.0;
   points->coords[1] = 150.0;
   points->coords[2] = 600.0;
   points->coords[3] = 150.0;

   gnome_canvas_item_new (group,
                          gnome_canvas_line_get_type (),
                          "points", points,
                          "fill_color", "black",
                          "width_units", 4.0,

If you want to tie events to the canvas items you of course have to
assign these to variables and bind these seperately.

Hope this helps.
