Guys, I'm going to be starting work on a windows gui. I have four canvas layers to work with with colour keying.
I have the base layer, say displaying a bitmap. Then I'll have Icons and windows on the the next two layers and the final layer will be used by cursors ect.
I'm thinking of processing the layout of the screen by calculating what can be seen and slitting the image into squares and rectangles and drawing them.
What do you think?
