Develop graphically sophisticated apps and games today!
The smart phone app market is progressively growing, and there is new market gap to fill that requires more graphically sophisticated applications and games. Game and Graphics Programming for iOS and Android with OpenGL ES 2.0 quickly gets you up to speed on understanding how powerful OpenGL ES 2.0 technology is in creating apps and games for amusement and effectiveness. Leading you through the development of a real-world mobile app with live code, this text lets you work with all the best features and tools that Open GL ES 2.
The Apple Finder Window reveals content, while leaving a clear visual path, or
“breadcrumbs,” back to the original starting point. The ability to clearly see a travelled path
through an interface is a vital component for a successful user experience. Designed as a single
interface, and not as multiple Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) pages as with a conventional
website, the timeline makes it easy for the user to see the path travelled.
GDI+ provides the basic functionality to implement graphics in
WinForms. GDI+ resides in System.Drawing.dll assembly.
The Graphics class is present in the System.Drawing namespace.
It cannot be inherited.
The CreateGraphics() method is used to create the Graphics
object. It is a method of the Control class.
Graphics objects can also be created from any object that derives
from the Image class.
With the release of Java 7, numerous new features have been added that significantly improve
the developer's ability to create and maintain Java applications. These include language
improvements, such as better exception handling techniques, and additions to the Java core
libraries, such as new threading mechanisms.
This cookbook covers these new features using a series of recipes. Each recipe addresses
one or more new features and provides a template for using these features. This should make
it easier to understand the features along with when and how they can be used.
We investigate hierarchical graphical models (HGMs) for automatically detecting decisions in multi-party discussions. Several types of dialogue act (DA) are distinguished on the basis of their roles in formulating decisions. HGMs enable us to model dependencies between observed features of discussions, decision DAs, and subdialogues that result in a decision. For the task of detecting decision regions, an HGM classiﬁer was found to outperform non-hierarchical graphical models and support vector machines, raising the F1-score to 0.80 from 0.55.
Statecharts is a specification language which is derived from finite– state machines and it is a powerful visual formalism for specifying discrete event systems. Statechart diagrams capture the behaviour of entities by specifying the responses to possible event instances. Statecharts language has also a lot of features for diagram structure. Until now, some tools and software are developed to construct Statechart diagrams, however, they are neither complicated nor difficult.
Introducing AutoCAD 2009 and AutoCAD LT 2009 covers the basic drawing and editing
tools that most users will need to produce quality AutoCAD drawings. You won’t find
information about every last feature. Instead, this book presents AutoCAD’s essential
features through a combination of tutorials and reference material to give you a con-
cise, easy-to-use companion for your work with AutoCAD. It’s designed so that you can
quickly learn the tools you need when you need them.
Flash 5 has greatly expanded the interactive and programmatic features of Flash
movies. Flash movies can now communicate directly with server-side scripts and
programs, using standard URL-encoded variables or XML-formatted structures.
Sounds can be imported and exported as MP3 audio, for high-quality music on the
Web at the smallest file sizes. The Flash interface now looks and feels like other
Macromedia products, with tool options contained in user-configurable panels.
Third-party developers are creating applications that output to the Flash movie
format, .SWF files.
The five chapters in Part I provide all the basics you need
to start drawing in AutoCAD. These chapters are essential
for the beginner, but even current users will find some
new tips and pointers, especially related to features that are
new for AutoCAD 2002. If you feel you know enough to skip to
Part II, skim this part first for New Feature icons to bring yourself
up to date. Some of the major new features of AutoCAD
2002 are introduced here.
There are a lot of books about designing and buildingWeb pages, so thank you for picking up this one.
Why do I think it is different?Well, theWeb has been around for quite a few years now, and during its life
several technologies have been introduced to help you create Web pages, some of which have lasted,
others of which have disappeared. Indeed, even enduring technologies such as HTML have had features
added and removed over the years.
The Linux market started from a few distributions available only from FTP servers, to full feature
commercial distributions available in stores and online including a printed manual and phone support.
Here are the main choices you have when looking for a Linux distribution:
· You can download any Linux distribution from its FTP server. To take a few examples,
RedHat can be downloaded from ftp://ftp.redhat.com, Slackware from ftp://ftp.cdrom.com and
Debian from ftp://ftp.debian.org. That method is free, but requires you to have a fast Internet
Flash has begun to mature as a product, and ActionScript has begun to mature as a language.
That represents both opportunity and challenge to you. As a mature language,
ActionScript provides a broad spectrum of features and functionality. The possibilities are
limitless: There is great opportunity to build new, innovative, useful, and interesting applications
using Flash and ActionScript. However, with that opportunity comes the challenge of
learning how to use ActionScript effectively.
Efrontier has teamed with TokyoPop to release Manga
Studio 3.0, manga and comic-book creation software for
aspiring and professional
the tools to create
without the use of
other graphic software.
Some of the
features included in
Manga Studio 3.0 are a large selection of screen tones,
single-click special effects, drag-and-drop tools, word
balloons, and fl oating palettes. Once the manga or comic
artwork is completed, it can be printed from any computer,
sent to a service bureau for publishing, formatted for
the Web, or exported for coloring.
This chapter provides a description of the Ambit® BuildGates® synthesis software, including
brief descriptions of the three software options that are offered. This chapter also provides a
comparison table of dc_shell and ac_shell command equivalents.
Capable of running in both command line mode and in graphical user interface (GUI) mode,
the BuildGates synthesis tool delivers dramatic performance and productivity benefits over
conventional synthesis tools. The key features of the Ambit BuildGates synthesis tool are
described in the following paragraphs....
Web designers are always comparing notes with each other, studying the code behind Web
pages they admire, and trying to figure out how to create the latest rollover effects, pop-up
windows, and graphic elements that make a Web page come to life.
As three experienced Web designers, we’ve been playing this game for years, looking over
the shoulders of our colleagues and sharing our best ideas with each other.

A mobile phone is a Swiss Army knife. It is not a chef’s knife or a buck
knife. We keep wanting new features on the phone, like texting, voice
memos, browsing, a camera, music, and television, because we would
like these things in our pocket and the phone is already there.
