Delphi 5 - formatting text onto a page
Posted on 2004-04-29
I am very much a beginner programmer using Delphi5. The app I am trying to complete is to create a graphical representation of a label before it is copied to a text file and sent to a novell print queue. The user has up to 7 individual lines that they can choose to have text on and for each of those lines, they can have 1 of 5 text styles; be centred, l/j or r/j; and have different text widths and heights. What I need is a way of stretching the text for the display. I have tried using the text as a label, but have had no luck displaying it properly. The only other thought that I have is to create each line as a bitmap, and then using some form of stretching it to size.
Any other thoughts would be most appreciated. I can email the project to anybody who wants to see what I am actually doing.
REMEMBER TO SPEAK SLOWLY AND CLEARLY AS I AM A NEWBIE!!
