CD_IUPDRAW - IupDraw Driver (iupdraw_cd.h)

This CD driver allows to draw onto an IUP canvas using the CD API but internally uses the IupDraw API.


The canvas is created by means of a call to the function cdCreateCanvas(CD_IUPDRAW, Data), after which other CD functions can be called as usual. This function creates a CD canvas based on the existing IUP canvas. The parameter Data is a pointer to a handle of the IUP canvas (Ihandle*). For use with CDLUA, a canvas created with IUPLUA must necessarily be passed as parameter.

Any amount of such canvases may exist simultaneously, but they should not use the same IUP canvas. It is important to note that a call to function cdKillCanvas is required to close the file properly.

The CD canvas is automatically stored in the IUP canvas as the "_CD_CANVAS" attribute.

 The driver is automatically double buffered. But it will work only inside the ACTION callback, although it can be created in any situation. Inside the ACTION callback the application must call cdCanvasActivate and cdCanvasDeactivate.

To use this driver, it must be linked with the "iupcd" library available in the IUP distribution.

In Lua, it is necessary to call function cdluaiup_open() after a call to function cdlua_open(), apart from linking with the "iupluacd" library. This is not necessary if you do require"iupluacd".
