Example
MyWDPicImage is WDPic = "Test.gif"
MyLayer is picLayer
 
// Draw a text in light yellow
MyLayer.DrawText(10, 20, "Easy development", LightYellow)
IMG_MyDrawing = MyWDPicImage
Syntax
<Image>.DrawText(<X coordinate> , <Y coordinate> , <Text> [, <Text color> [, <Management of &>]])
<Image>: picLayer variable
Name of picLayer variable to use.
<X coordinate>: Integer
X coordinate of text to draw (in pixels).
<Y coordinate>: Integer
Y coordinate of text to draw (in pixels).
<Text>: Type corresponding to the text to draw
Text to draw. This text can be:
  • a string (without formatting marks such as TAB, CR, etc.),
  • a numeric.
<Text color>: Integer or constant (optional)
Text color to use. This color can correspond to:
If this parameter is not specified, the color of the text:
  • is Black if <Image>.Pen has not been used beforehand,
  • corresponds to the color specified in the last call to <Image>.Pen.
<Management of &>: Optional boolean
  • True (default value) if the "&" character must not be interpreted as an underline operator.
  • False if the "&" character must be interpreted as an underline operator: the character following the "&" character will be underlined.
Remarks

Font

By default:
  • The font used is "MS Sans Serif" (size 13).
  • The writing direction is horizontal (from left to right).
  • The coordinates of the top left corner of the image are (0,0).
  • The "&" character is not interpreted.
To modify these parameters, use <picLayer variable>.Font.

Coordinates

Coordinates are given with respect to the top left corner of the image (coordinates: (0.0)).
The coordinates correspond to the top left corner of the rectangle into which the text will be drawn. The precise location of the text in this rectangle depends on the size, shape and attributes of the font.

Management of '&'

The parameter <Management of & > makes it possible to manage the use of the '&' character. Example:
  • the "&" character must not be interpreted as an underline operator. For example:
    MyLayer.DrawText(10, 10, "Tom&Jerry", LightRed, True)

    will display "Tom&Jerry".
  • the "&" character must be interpreted as an underline operator: the character following the "&" character will be underlined. For example:
    MyLayer.DrawText(10, 10, "&Edit", LightRed, False)

    will display "Edit".
