I'd like to know how to rotate a string around it's center/middle axis.  (Presumably using Graphic.RotateTransform) I have looked at the TranslateTransform method, but I cannot figure out how to use it properly.

 I would be extremely thankful for any assistance in this endavour.

Try this
 Dim angle As Integer
 Dim f As Font = New Font("Arial", 10)
Dim s As String = "Test String"

 Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        angle = CType(TextBox1.Text, Integer)'enter the angle to TextBox1
        Me.Refresh()' to repaint the form

    End Sub

    Private Sub Form1_Paint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles MyBase.Paint
        Dim sz As Size = Me.Size
       'find the middle of the form
        Dim Middle As Point = New Point(sz.Width / 2, sz.Height / 2)
        e.Graphics.TranslateTransform(Middle.X, Middle.Y)

        'rotate
        e.Graphics.RotateTransform(angle)
        ' Create a new StringFormat object to
        Dim format As StringFormat = New StringFormat(StringFormatFlags.NoClip)
        format.Alignment = StringAlignment.Center
        format.LineAlignment = StringAlignment.Center
        e.Graphics.DrawString("A simple TextString ", f, Brushes.Black, 0, 0, format)

    End Sub

 Private Sub Form1_Paint( _
        ByVal sender As Object, _
        ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs _

        e.Graphics.RotateTransform(20)
