Transitioning Win2D to Reunion is In-Progress

Moving Win2D over to WindowsAppSdk and WinUI3 is a work in progress, and some features such as CanvasAnimatedControl have partial or no support.

Code Example

To give you a flavor of what the code looks like, here is a snippet of XAML:

xmlns:canvas="using:Microsoft.Graphics.Canvas.UI.Xaml"

<Grid>
    <canvas:CanvasControl Draw="canvasControl_Draw" ClearColor="CornflowerBlue" />
</Grid>

and C#:

void canvasControl_Draw(CanvasControl sender, CanvasDrawEventArgs args)
{
    args.DrawingSession.DrawEllipse(155, 115, 80, 30, Colors.Black, 3);
    args.DrawingSession.DrawText("Hello, world!", 100, 100, Colors.Yellow);
}

or C++/CX:

void MainPage::CanvasControl_Draw(CanvasControl^ sender, CanvasDrawEventArgs^ args)
{
    args->DrawingSession->DrawEllipse(155, 115, 80, 30, Colors::Black, 3);
    args->DrawingSession->DrawText("Hello, world!", 100, 100, Colors::Yellow);
}

or C++/WinRT:

void MainPage::CanvasControl_Draw(CanvasControl const& sender, CanvasDrawEventArgs const& args)
{
    args.DrawingSession().DrawEllipse(155, 115, 80, 30, Colors::Black(), 3);
    args.DrawingSession().DrawText(L"Hello, world!", 100, 100, Colors::Yellow());
}

or VB:

Sub canvasControl_Draw(sender As CanvasControl, args As CanvasDrawEventArgs)
    args.DrawingSession.DrawEllipse(155, 115, 80, 30, Colors.Black, 3)
    args.DrawingSession.DrawText("Hello, world!", 100, 100, Colors.Yellow)
End Sub

Using Win2D

The documentation explains how to install Visual Studio, add the Win2D NuGet package to your project, and get started using the API.

Building Win2D from source

Requirements
  • Visual Studio 2019 16.9 with Tools for Universal Windows Apps 15.0.27428.01 and Windows SDK 18362
Clone Repository
Build NuGet Packages
  • Launch 'Developer Command Prompt for VS2019'
  • Change directory to your cloned Win2D repository and run 'build'
Point Visual Studio at the resulting 'bin' directory
  • In Visual Studio, go to 'Tools' -> 'NuGet Package Manager' -> 'Package Manager Settings'
  • Choose 'Package Sources'
  • Click the '+' button to add a new source
  • Set 'Name' to 'Win2D' (or a name of your choosing)
  • Set 'Source' to the full path to the 'bin' directory (inside your cloned Win2D repository)
  • Click the 'Update' button
  • Click 'OK'

Locally built versions of Win2D are marked as prerelease, so you must change the 'Stable Only' setting to 'Include Prerelease' when adding them to your project.
