[directfb-dev] Magnifying glass
I just finished my first version of the magnifying glass:
I'm still having some problems with my getpixel function. I read from somewhere that matrox runs accelerated only in 16bit mode, but it turned out that surface pixel format is 32bits ARGB. Does anybody have a handy getpixel function? Mine currently works for 32 bit ARGB only, and I can't really test the function on anything else.

I do this, but I get a warning from dfb. Hope this isn't too serious ;) The documentation says something like "works only in exclusive mode"...The visible framebuffer, i.e. the composition of all windows, is the surface of the display layer. You can get access to it via IDirectFBDisplayLayer::GetSurface(). Reading or blitting from it provides the visible screen content.
I set opacity to 0x10 just before rendering.. that way you see where you are moving the window...Unfortunately, the glass window itself is included. Unless a warp effect is wanted, like the one of qmag on our Qt screenshot, you would have to hide the glass window temporarily. This is not acceptable as it would produce easily visible flicker.
A rough idea is to provide a public API to the stack compositing engine.This would be the right way to do it... I'm afraid that I don't have enough experience with DFB yet to stab it there myself..
