Windows GDI+ exposes a flat API that consists of about 600 functions, which are implemented in Gdiplus.dll and declared in Gdiplusflat.h. The functions in the GDI+ flat API are wrapped by a collection of about 40 C++ classes. We recommend not to call the functions in the flat API directly. Whenever you make calls to GDI+, we recommend that you do so by calling the methods and functions provided by the C++ wrappers. Microsoft Product Support Services will not provide support for code that calls the flat API directly. For more info on using these wrapper methods, see GDI+ Flat API.
The following flat API functions are wrapped by the SolidBrush C++ class.
