The 2006 Iron Coder submission by Peter Hosey

What it does

Beads was my entry into the 2006 Iron Coder competition. It hangs a shellacked* string of beads on the frontmost window. When you switch from one window to another, the beads move over to hang on the new window, and when you close the last window of the application, the beads fade out.

Beads hanging on UnicodeChecker's main window.

*I didn't have the time or skill to make the beads flow. I still don't.

The making of

I wrote an article documenting how the beads are drawn, called How to draw Beads. If you're curious and would rather read English text with pretty pictures than read the source code, this document is for you.
