Hello.
I want to render a text in DirectX 11 with a .dds file and some quads. The problems is that I want to load the .ttf file then convert it on the fly to a DDS texture (only if is not converted already) then load it in the game and render it as quads. I have some questions:

1. As I'm not a very experienced programmer the TTF specification doesnt help me so much and I wonder If there is any working C++ sample that loads a .ttf file (cant manage to find it on google). Not explicitly on DirectX, It can be in any kind of renderer, even GDI.
.
2. The TTF file stores information about the character size and position and Ill get the data in pixels like a bitmap ?

Thanks
