I use these lines to draw texts on my Win32 programming back->GetDC(&hdc); // draw string on backsurface SetBkColor(hdc, RGB(255, 255, 255)); SetBkMode(hdc, TRANSPARENT); SetTextColor(hdc, RGB(119, 4, 249)); TextOut(hdc, 400, 155, "draw", strlen("draw")); back->ReleaseDC(hdc); I have some questions about TextOut() I wish to know - How to change size of text printed out? - Can I change font of texts? please help me out. Thank you.

Use CreateFont() to get a HFONT handle for different sizes or typefaces. Use SelectObject() to use the font on the device context.

Wow! I didn''t know that the MSDN has Programming Windows 5th Edition online



Wow! Neither did I. Though it looks as if it''s only a couple chapters of it.

Oh well, I have the book, and the html version that comes with it has been sitting a few clicks away for some time.
