Hi !

The code as follow :

Private Type RECT
        Left As Long
        Top As Long
        Right As Long
        Bottom As Long
End Type

Private Declare Function DrawText Lib "user32" Alias "DrawTextA" (ByVal hdc As Long, ByVal lpStr As String, ByVal nCount As Long, lpRect As RECT, ByVal wFormat As Long) As Long


Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim rc As RECT

    Picture1.ForeColor = &HFF00FF
    rc.Left = 0
    rc.Top = 0
    rc.Right = Picture1.Width
    rc.Bottom = Picture1.Height
    DrawText Picture1.hdc, "Testing", 7, rc, 0
   
    Picture1.ForeColor = &HFF0000
    rc.Left = 0
    rc.Top = 20
    rc.Right = Picture1.Width
    rc.Bottom = Picture1.Height
    DrawText Picture1.hdc, "Testing", 7, rc, 0
End Sub
