Re: window coord. & print text
Date: Tue, 4 Aug 1992 02:52 EDT
Does anyone know how to do the following:
1. Create a CLIM window with coord (0,0) at the bottom left corner with Y
going up instead of at the top left corner?
2. How to print text side ways?
1. See documentation p.110-112 and with-room-for-graphics macro.
2. On Sun Allegro 4.01 under CLIM 1.0 there are two undocumented functions
draw-string* and draw-vertical-string*. I don't know if they are available on other
implemetations of CLIM, but although a little bit strange they worked fine on SUN.
CLIM currently provides no general way to draw text at odd angles. The
only affect a transformation has on the draw-string operation is to
transform the location of the starting point. Some host window systems
don't provides a way of doing this short of performing the
transformation on pixel arrays and then rendering them.
draw-vertical-string* is a hack rpovided for the simple purpose of
labeling the Y axis of a graph.
