Canvas control ?
 
Is there a Canvas control, or is there going to be one? (For drawing shapes on.. )

There will be some sort of drawing component. It's probably going to be some sort of Canvas-like control and related to Windows Metafiles (sort of like the Shapes in zMapper).

You can't directly access the Windows GDI because that can't be done in a scripting language (remember, this is "managed" code, so no pointers or direct memory allocation is possible).

This will likely be added when I add the rest of the graphical stuff with the Sprite system. It's something that you should see within the month, since I'll need all of this to do anything with a DirectX version of zMUD.

Nifty. I dont need any direct GDI access (eep), just the ability to draw standard shapes like line, circle, rectangle etc select/move them in groups and so on.
