Paint Text on Screen (Like IBM Aptiva)
Posted on 2002-06-23
I've seen this on an IBM Aptiva, but i'm seeing it more and more on different machines that come with custom software, or in software that was bundled with a keyboard that has 'extra' buttons.
Anyway to the point,
How might I 'paint' colored text (any size I may set) on to the screen in the bottom right corner?
I want my app to 'paint' whatever function the user has selected in the corner of the screen to confirm what they've selected. For those who have seen what i'm talking about you'll understand.
I've already tried 'cutting' a form to a text path but I can't seem to get the sizing and positioning right at all - i'm wondering if someone has a different approach? Maybe one that doesn't require an extra form?
