I am currently learning GDI+ and have come across the need to write vertical text onto a form. How would one go about doing that?

See the following samples

Public void DrawVerticalString()
{
  System.Drawing.Graphics  formGraphics ;
   String  drawString ;
  System.Drawing.Font drawFont;
 System.Drawing.SolidBrush drawBrush;
formGraphics = System.Drawing.Graphics = Me.CreateGraphics();
     drawString = "Sample Text";
     drawFont = New System.Drawing.Font("Arial", 16);
     drawBrush = new      System.Drawing.SolidBrush(System.Drawing.Color.Black);
    Single x  = 150.0;
    Single y  = 50.0;
    System.Drawing.StringFormat()
drawFormat = new System.Drawing.StringFormat();
    drawFormat.FormatFlags = StringFormatFlags.DirectionVertical
        formGraphics.DrawString(drawString, drawFont, drawBrush, _
        x, y, drawFormat);
    drawFont.Dispose();
    drawBrush.Dispose();
    formGraphics.Dispose();
}
End Sub
