Re: Modern UI frameworks?

Not any. Mono AFAIK doesn't support WPF so you better make a Windows.Forms app. That is the case now, Microsoft announced to bring .NET to Linux themselves, but I am not sure if they mean .NET core only or everything and it's unknown when it will happen. So for now, you're better of targeting Mono....

Because the folks behind Monodevelop decided that. Why don't you ask them why they haven't adopted Windows.Forms?

Re: Modern UI frameworks?

Because Monodevelop is not VS. Monodevelop uses GTK and it creates .NET-apps that use GTK#. It doesn't mean that GTK# is the only GUI toolkit out there and it doesn't mean that GTK# is the only thing Mono can run. It's one among many and Monodevelop happens to use it.

Re: Modern UI frameworks?

This is true. You can totally make a .NET app using VS and run it on Mono. In this case, why would you want to use GTK# or anything else? VS is perfectly capable at creating GUI apps with Windows.Forms and Mono is perfectly capable at running them. Mind you, you can run it on Mono on Windows too. I ...

Re: Modern UI frameworks?

I think that is the idea of Mono. You can develop on Windows and deploy to Pi, or even develop on Pi and deploy to Windows. I assume Mono maps Windows Forms to whatever native API is appropriate to the target. It appears that may be GTK+ on Raspbian. I suggest you read the Mono documentation on GUI...

Re: Drawing lines with anti-aliasing?

There's a standard technique which consists of rendering onto an off-screen bitmap which is larger than the screen and then downscale that bitmap to actually display it.

Re: Modern UI frameworks?

Console graphics might suck on such a small screen. Unless of course you fiddle with the font size. What's so bad about starting X and using a GUI toolkit? Speaking of which, I've been using Mono's Windows.Forms a lot and find it easy.
