Types and classes for specifying colors and fonts in various ways.

Fonts and colors can be specified using Names (strings). These will automatically converted to appropriate GCIds, FontIds and Pixels when needed.

For efficiency, fonts, colors and other drawing attributes can also be allocated once and for all in advance using e.g. wCreateGCtx.

See Also

The new way, suitable in combination with Drawings: GCtx.

The old way: loadQueryFontF, allocNamedColorF, wCreateGC.


Incomplete documentation.

The methods in classes colorGen and FontGen should not be exported, since they differ depending on whether the Haskell compiler in use supports existentiall types.
