After talking w/ Chris I’ve got the final list of requirements for the first beta of Pyxis2/Netby and it will be release very soon, like next week. What we are seeing though is a bit of slowness on the GUI which I’m attributing to no matter how much optimization I do when I update part of the screen I’m still pushing out a full bitmap, I think w/ RLP I can speed things up considerably; especially if you let me look at that code for video on ChipworkX.
I know there’s NDA stuff involved and what I was thinking was give the user 2 options. Either they can use WPF for rendering and have it fully open source or they can plug-in a closed-source DLL that does rendering w/ RPL. That should protect you and give Pyxis2/Netby the speed it needs.
What do you think?
EDIT: looked at the chipworkx code; bit hard to run through at first glance. All I need is the ability to set a specific pixel to a color. Fron there I have it covered. Line drawing, fills, ellipses, etc
