A peek into the Bindows future… Bindows Vector Graphics (BVG)

Linkdemo Screenshot

Working with the Bindows product has been an exciting trip so far. With the introduction of SVG-support in Firefox 1.5 we were given the opportunity to draw vector graphics in both Internet Explorer (VML) and Firefox (SVG).

Abhinav Pobbati started working on a sort of graphing tool for a customer and I recently got the opportunity to help him further develop the concept. Now, we have an early demonstration of this simple graph tool which renders its graphics using VML in Internet Explorer and SVG in Firefox, all within the Bindows framework.

The demonstration contains several elements which can be dragged around on the screen. The elements are linked using lines which can be right clicked to show a context menu. Everything with a beautiful pastel coloured background! :)

Try it out!

We plan to name this feature Bindows Vector Graphics (BVG) and we would love to get any comments and suggestions you may have.

    Looks great - but minimizing a window completely removed it from my view…

    The API will be available in the near future. It is not ready for public release just yet. What you see on the website is an experimental preview.

    Regarding the disappearing window when minimizing I have not included any code to recall the window. Of course I should have disabled the minimization button…
