The Screen Painter is a free small application developed for painting on the screen.
It's easy to use, you only need to extract the .exe file from the archive and you are ready to paint. But before you start painting, you should take a look at the application commands shortcuts, because once you start painting, you can't quit.
Not because you will enjoy it so much, but because Esc key, or any other key combination will not work; the only way to exit Screen Painter by pressing x key, which quit the application.
Here it is the list with the option commands, which can be fired up by pressing the corresponding keyboard key:
x - Exit the application.
c - Clear the screen.
w - increase the Pen width for one pixel.
q - decrease the Pen width for one pixel.
b - change current color of the Pen in Blue color.
r - change current color of the Pen in Red color.
g - change current color of the Pen in Green color.
y - change current color of the Pen in Yellow color.
All these options are available while you are drawing on the screen. The shortcuts for option commands are predefined and they can be modified, with command line parameters.
How does Screen Painter works? It uses command line parameters. The application is dialog based with transparent property, so painting on screen is actually painting on dialog which is invisible (transparent).
So, if you want to alter the source code you can have 7 different kinds of pens: a solid pen, a dashed pen, a dotted pen, a pen with alternating dashes and dots, a pen with alternating dashes and double dots, a null pen and a pen that draws a line inside the frame of closed shapes. You can even modify the four colors it uses for standard (blue, red, green and yellow).

Screen Painter is famous because of its simplicity. If you need just a small tool to paint something on your screen or to underline something, without having to install complex programs or using complicated software then Screen Painter is the right tool.
