How to draw pixel-level color gradients in CScrollView ?
I have a very general question. I wish to plot a mathematical function on a 2-dimensional grid. The function will be represented by 3 sets of floats, x-values, y-values, and z-values. Obviously, it is impossible to plot 3 such data sets on a 2D grid, so one approach is to use pixel coloration to represent the z-values.
Those examples (and there are many to be found) show something like the function of the complex variable z, f(z) = exp(z). I have attached a exp(z).jpg example of the imaginary part of the plot exp(z).
My question is: How to accomplish such a gradient colorization, assuming one already has the data?
I have experimented with Gdiplus SetPixel, but I have not figured out how to produce a smooth gradient. Obviously, I'm in way over my head, but I had hoped someone might lead me in the right direction.
