Font Orientation not shown properly in a Label
Posted on 2010-09-21
Person who coded up an app I'm rewriting had to do some text at an angle of about 75 degree from the horizontal. The solution which worked at the time was to put the rotated text into a jpg and put it into an image. Looks horrible on any current screen.
I see Font has an Orientation property which would do the job... except I can see why it wasn't used... the top half of the label gets sliced off. Knocked off Autosize and changed the height, aligned the text to the bottom of the Label container, still no difference.
Any ideas? The area for this text is very tight which limits the alternatives.
