    VB5: Rotating text to print vertical


    I posted a message yesterday, but I don't think that the subject was clear.
    Hope someone can help.

    Thank you!

    Hi Sharon --

    Well, the best advice I can offer is that you _not_ post the question in the Subject.
    That's what the body of the message is for. I see now that's what you did...

    > I need to print a variable from bottom to top rather than from left to right.
    > The letters themselves should be turned to horizontal position. Any suggestions?


    Unfortunately, I'm not sure the question was clear. <g>

    If you need to actually rotate the letters, see RotFont.zip at my web site. If you
    just need to stack the letters, you'll want to play with the .CurrentX and .CurrentY
    props of the object you're printing on, then print one letter at a time. That help?

    Later... Karl
