Draw Vector Graphics

Aspose.Drawing for .NET allows to draw different vector graphics such as arcs, Cardinal Spline, Bezier spline, ellipses, closed curves, lines and a number of other types. Only few lines of code needed to draw different types of vector graphics using the API. e.g here is code for drawing arc.

Drawing Arc - C#

Bitmap bitmap = new Bitmap(1000, 800, System.Drawing.Imaging.PixelFormat.Format32bppPArgb);
Graphics graphics = Graphics.FromImage(bitmap);
Pen pen = new Pen(Color.FromKnownColor(KnownColor.Blue), 2);
graphics.DrawArc(pen, 0, 0, 700, 700, 0, 180);
