- Graphics Device Interface. In Windows the
GDI provides a common set of drawing routines (including both text and
graphics). The GDI can be used to draw to most devices, such as screens,
printers, plotters or bitmap images. Central to the GDI is the concept of a
Device Context (DC) which is a handle
to the specific device to be written to.
