Graphics.h File For Dev C Download

It is common practice to use grpahics library which is called graphics.h in Turbo C++ IDE (Integrated Development Editor). While using Dev-C++ IDE we notice/face a problem that we cannot use graphics.h header file. The reason is that by default Dev-C++ resource of header files does not contain this header file. So that we cannot include or use graphic functions in our C/C++ source files.

Graphics.h File For Dev C Download

Download File:

graphics.h header file of C/C++ provides multiple built in functions for displaying different type of graphic objects. These object include rectangle, circle, bar, line and all other relevant functions. We can also use this header file while using Dev-C++ IDE.

During the MS-DOS era, it was popular and utilized by many programs. Although, whoever is new to graphics can still learn a lot about graphics.h library and build the basic foundation of modern graphics.

Step 3 : Copy and paste graphics.h and winbgim.h files into the include folder of compiler directory. (If you have Code::Blocks installed in C drive of your computer, go through: Disk C >> Program Files >> CodeBlocks >> MinGW >> include. Paste these two files there.)

Step 9 : Try compiling a graphics.h program in C or C++, still there will be an error. To solve it, open graphics.h file (pasted in include folder in step 3) with Notepad++. Go to line number 302, and replace that line with this line : int left=0, int top=0, int right=INT_MAX, int bottom=INT_MAX,

It seems that the library of Graphics wasn't in the include folder , I downloaded it from the internet and copied both of graphics and winbgim header files into include folder also libbgi.a into lib folder, yet, when I come to run the source file, I get large number of errors.

The other answers are all correct, but I see that none addresses the one problem I know I encountered with graphics.h: it has an error on line 302 (in my version, which seems to be the same as yours) in the following declaration:

Even though some peoples somehow managed to port it outside the turbo. Some people hacked their own version of graphics.h. One such person is Micheal main, he ported some of borland graphics functions and library.

Once you download the files. Now you have to place into the correct location in Dev-C++ installation folder. Try to locate include and lib folder under your dev-cpp installation. Move these files under the respective folder of include and lib. like e.g. D:\Dev-cpp\ include & D:\Dev-cpp\lib .

In this post we are going to install graphics.h library on Ubuntu and to use it with gcc or g++ compiler. graphics.h provides access to a simple graphics library that makes it possible to draw lines, rectangles, ovals, arcs, polygons, images, and strings on a graphical window. To know about functions in graphic.h library in C/C++ visit here.

Graphics in C++ is defined to create a graphic model like creating different shapes and adding colors to it. It can be done in the C++ console by importing graphics.h library to GCC compiler. We can draw the circle, line, eclipse, and other geometric shapes too. The application of Object-oriented Programming is a primary technique to be used here. C++ does not have any built-in functions to perform drawing as they have low-level programs to use; instead, we can use API to do graphics.

The graphics are a two-dimensional concept; to implement this, we need implementation and few functions in C++ programming. So, a window or canvas is the main feature to show the output. Since we need a good framework to develop a good feature to draw, here in this article, I have used DevC++ IDE for that we need a certain package in addition to work with Graphics, to download this, we can refer WinBGIm to install the graphics library.

To work with DevC++, we need to download graphics.h and libbgi. a file. The next step is to go to the project and select project options followed by the parameter tab and paste the following in a linker tab: lbgi -lgdi32 -lcomdlg32 -luuid -loleaut32 -lole32.

The first step in any graphics program is to include graphics.h header file. The graphics.h header file provides access to a simple graphics library that makes it possible to draw lines, rectangles, ovals, arcs, polygons, images, and strings on a graphical window.

graphicsDriver : It is a pointer to an integer specifying the graphics driver to be used. It tells the compiler that what graphics driver to use or to automatically detect the drive. In all our programs we will use DETECT macro of graphics.h library that instruct compiler for auto detection of graphics driver.

driverDirectoryPath : It specifies the directory path where graphics driver files (BGI files) are located. If directory path is not provided, then it will search for driver files in current working directory directory. In all our sample graphics programs, you have to change path of BGI directory accordingly where you Turbo C++ compiler is installed.

There are 16 colors declared in graphics.h header file. We use colors to set the current drawing color, change the color of background, change the color of text, to color a closed shape etc (Foreground and Background Color). To specify a color, we can either use color constants like setcolor(RED), or their corresponding integer codes like setcolor(4). Below is the color code in increasing order.

C graphics using graphics.h functions or WinBGIM (Windows 7) can be used to draw different shapes, display text in different fonts, change colors and many more. Using functions of graphics.h in Turbo C compiler you can make graphics programs, animations, projects, and games. You can draw circles, lines, rectangles, bars and many other geometrical figures. You can change their colors using the available functions and fill them. Following is a list of functions of graphics.h header file. Every function is discussed with the arguments it needs, its description, possible errors while using that function and a sample C graphics program with its output.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle []).push();

Most of the functions are two dimensional except bar3d which draws a 3d bar, you can also implement these functions using already existing algorithms. You can also use these functions in C++ programs. You can use these functions for developing programs in Windows 7 and Vista using Dev C++ compiler. For that you need to download an additional package WinBGIm, download WinBGIm. Now open Dev C++ compiler go to Tools->Package Manager, use install button and then browse the package location. Now create a new project and select WinBGIm. This library also offers many functions which can be used for image manipulation, you can open image files, create bitmaps and print images, RGB colors and mouse handling.

GLUT is distributed in source code form; compiled libraries for Win32 are also available. The current version, 3.7, is in late beta. The programs and associated files contained in the distrbution were developed by Mark J. Kilgard (unless otherwise noted). The programs are not in the public domain, but they are freely distributable without licensing fees. These programs are provided without gurantee or warrantee expressed or implied.

The images are distributed as a tar file. You can either untar the file, or run tardist on the tar file to automatically start SGI's Software Manager (swmgr). Otherwise, you can run inst or swmgr on the untar'ed files.

Ron Bielalski has built binaries of GLUT 3.7 beta for Solaris on SPARC processors in both 32 bit (16.5 MB) and 64 bit (18.3 MB) forms. John Martin has built binaries of GLUT 3.7 beta for Solaris on x86 in both 32 bit (15.2MB) and 64 bit (17.4MB) and forms. Note that these files are very large - they contain a completely built GLUT source tree, including all source and object files as well as the final headers and libraries. Please direct questions about GLUT for Solaris to

Nate Robins and Paul Mayfield with help from Layne Christensen have implemented the original version of GLUT for Win32 (Windows 95,98,Me,NT,2000,XP). Here's a link to their GLUT for Windows web page. These pages include GLUT for Win32 dll, lib and header file (everything you need to get started programming with GLUT) and GLUT source code distribution (including a whole slew of great example programs + data).

The most signficant update to GLUT is the integration of the X Window System and Win32 versions of GLUT in a single source tree. GLUT works for either Win32 or X11 now. Nate Robins deserves the credit for this merging. To help Win32 users better utilize GLUT, PC-style .ZIP files are available for download.

You can still download the previous version, GLUT 3.6:Download the zipped GLUT 3.6 source code distribution: glut36.zipDownload the GLUT 3.6 image datafile distribution: glut36data.zipDownload the GLUT 3.6 headers and pre-compiled libraries:

You can also download pre-compiled GLUT 3.6 libraries for Windows NT Alpha platforms by downloading (82 kilobytes). GLUT for Alpha questions should be directed to Richard Readings (

There are a few minor bug fixes in the library. Various build problems on various built platforms have been resolved. GLUT 3.1 should build much cleanly on HP/UX, AIX, Linux, Solaris, and SunOS platforms now (cross finger). There are also a few more example programs. See the CHANGES file for details.

GLUT 3.2 fixed a few more minor bugs in the library. Mesa users will benefit from a hack to speed double-buffered damage regeneration. Man pages for the complete GLUT API are now included. The tests are expanded. New examples from Mesa distribution (converted to use GLUT) and advanced OpenGL programs from the Advanced OpenGL Rendering SIGGRAPH '96 class are now included. See the CHANGES file for details.

GLUT 3.3 is more portable; nearly all compiler warning are resolved. Lots of new GLUT-based OpenGL examples have been added or improved. Some new API has been added that will be codified with the GLUT 4 API revision. For example, an API for using InfiniteReality's dynamic video resize (DVR) capability is included. Also, a better way of getting window status is supported. There were some bug in the GLUT library itself that are now fixed. Some the warning or error messages weren't quite right. glutFullScreen before a window is first displayed now ensures that the window need not be positioned by the user. See the CHANGES file for details.
