Hi All,
        As you know Rhys has been hacking away like crazy on System.Drawing
for the past weeks and a small windowing API has been added on to test
the drawing APIs on it .. 

        So you folks can start drawing widgets with System.Drawing (if you
need inspiration , port one of those age old applets which drew mandelbrots
on screen....) . This could probably form the basis for some kind of
Swing like toolkit .. but as of now it looks more like AWT :-) programmers might be familiar with the System.Drawing used
to draw UI for almost all mobile apps ... The smooth beziers , the 
rounded edges , and all the eye candy .. We're working up to that
soonish ..

The current cvs has only an X11 based backend which is great for 
all *nix users (and GNU Darwin etc...) , and is more portable than
Wine based impls ...

So please test the attached app ... and see if you can get a window
working ... And use current CVS as well

cscc -lSystem.Drawing x11draw.cs
ilrun a.out.exe

Next stop -- custom widgets !!!

Also any GUI/Graphics wizards here ?

The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
