Windows GDI

The Windows Graphics Device Interface, which provides functions that perform primitive drawing functions for output to video displays and printers. Traditional Windows applications call GDI functions directly to perform low-level drawing (line, rectangle, ellipse), text output, font management, and similar functions.
