Question:
How do I create a rotated font?


Answer:
Rotating fonts is a straight forward process, so long as the Windows
font mapper can supply a rotated font based on the font you request.
Note: Using a TrueType font virturally guarantees success.

Here is an example of creating a font that is rotated 45 degrees:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  lf : TLogFont;
  tf : TFont;
begin
  with Form1.Canvas do begin
    Font.Name := 'Arial';
    Font.Size := 24;
    tf := TFont.Create;
    tf.Assign(Font);
    GetObject(tf.Handle, sizeof(lf), @lf);
    lf.lfEscapement := 450;
    lf.lfOrientation := 450;
    tf.Handle := CreateFontIndirect(lf);
    Font.Assign(tf);
    tf.Free;
    TextOut(20, Height div 2, 'Rotated Text!');
  end;
end;

hmmmm...why not draw your form on a piece of paper with the label exactly the way you want it.. Make several copies and distribute them to your customers?  Instructions would read...

Past on screen to use.

With that in mind:

Type up label
Scan
Rotate image 90 degrees in editor
Slap TImage on form
