ADC: Introduction to Quartz Programming Guide for QuickDraw Developers

"The purpose of this document is to help developers replace their QuickDraw code
with Quartz code that achieves equivalent (or more) functionality. It provides
strategies and guidance along with routines that use Quartz to achieve functionality
similar to QuickDraw routines."

CarbonDev: How do I get Interface Builder to display images from my project?

"You don't add the images directly to Interface Builder. You add the images to
your project in Xcode and then IB should detect them and make them available.
You have to add the images to Xcode in a careful way."

ADC: Technical Q&A QD65 - QDFlushPortBuffer

"If you draw into a window and want those changes to appear on the screen
immediately (before the next call to WaitNextEvent) then you need to call
QDFlushPortBuffer to flush the updated portion to the screen."


ADC: Technical Note TN2133 - Coalesced Updates

"Recommendations: ... and in Carbon's HIToolBox use HIViewSetNeedsDisplay
or HIViewSetNeedsDisplayInRegion instead of the immediate HIWindowFlush."

Carbon List: Where to find the flag icons of input menu?

"They are in one of two places, depending on the type of keyboard layout.
For resource keyboards (KCHR, uchr), the flags are in the kcns resource
in the resource file. For XML keyboard layouts (.keylayout), they are icns
files in the same folder as the .keylayout file."

Help required - old (but "canonical") stuff

"The most aggravating thing with the function DrawPicture, is that I've been
unable to draw that image anywhere but on the screen. I would like to be
able to deal with PICT resources, draw them offscreen on some bit images
and then be able to use the fast CopyBits function as I wish."

adc - Converting PICT Data, part of the "Quartz Programming Guide for
QuickDraw Developers"


"The QuickDraw picture (PICT) format is the graphics metafile format in Mac
OS 9 and earlier. A picture contains a recorded sequence of QuickDraw imag-
ing operations and associated data, suitable for later playback to a graphics
device on any platform that supports the PICT format.

In Mac OS X, the Portable Document Format (PDF) is the native metafile and
print-spooling format. PDF provides a convenient, efficient mechanism for
viewing and printing digital content across all platforms and operating systems.
PDF is better suited than the PICT format to serve as a general-purpose meta-
file format for digital documents."

adc - Quartz 2D Programming Guide

"Quartz 2D is an advanced, two-dimensional drawing engine accessible from
all Mac OS X application environments outside of the kernel. Quartz 2D is
based on industry standards—PostScript and PDF. Quartz 2D uses ColorSync
for high-quality color management and Apple Type Services (ATS) for font
rendering.

It provides low-level, lightweight 2D rendering with unmatched output fidelity
regardless of display or printing device. Quartz 2D is resolution- and device-
independent; you don’t need to think about the final destination when you
use the Quartz 2D application programming interface (API) for drawing."

adc - Universal Binary Programming Guidelines, Second Edition - GWorlds

"For best performance, it is generally preferable for you to use a pixel
format that corresponds to the native byte ordering of the system. When
you pass kNativeEndianPixMap in the flags parameter to NewGWorld, the
byte ordering of the pixel format is big-endian on big-endian systems, and
little-endian on little-endian systems."

Glenn Howes - Vectored PICT to PDF conversion in your code

"You should not be creating any PICT files, but longtime Mac users might
have a large number of .pict or .pct files lying around, and some (all?) of the
tools Apple provides to open such files and convert them to PDF do a horrid
job of it. This applies only to vectored PICTs, as bitmapped PICTS will look
bad regardless."

oreilly.com - A Simple Drawing Sample in Quartz 2D

"The routine QDBeginCGContext and QDEndCGContext gives you a graphics
context for a QuickDraw graphics port. While you can use this capability to
mix Quartz 2D and QuickDraw drawings, one important caveat is that you
should not use QuickDraw drawing commands between the QDBeginCGCon-
text and QDEndCGContext calls."

CarbonList - Carbon & Retina Displays

"How does Retina work out in conjunction with Carbon apps? I've read about
the two modes apps can work in Retina and I'm hoping there will be some
way for a carbon app to get at least some limited hi-def support (e.g. dialogs
with standard HIToolbox controls or drawing into Quartz contexts with double
resolution)."
