Owning Palette: Picture Functions VIs
Requires: Base Development System
Draws a string into a picture.
If the string is larger than the rectangle you specify, the VI clips, or crops, the string to the area of the rectangle.
|[user-specified font] specifies the specific font characteristics for the text to draw. The VI ignores this input unless desired font is User-specified Font. |
|desired font specifies the text font. |
|picture is the picture to which you want to add the text string. The default is an empty picture.|
|text orientation sets the orientation of the text to draw. |
|rect contains the upper-left and lower-right coordinates that describe a rectangle bounding the text. The VI clips text to the coordinates of this rectangle. Horizontal coordinates increase to the right, and vertical coordinates increase to the bottom. |
|text is the string to draw in the picture.|
|text color is the color of the text. The default is black. You can wire a color box constant to this input.|
|BG color is the color of the background of the text. The default is transparent. |
You can wire a color box constant to this input.
|new picture is the picture that contains the new image. You can wire this output to any other picture input to add more drawing instructions to the picture. You also can wire this output to the Picture to Pixmap VI to obtain an image data cluster. You then can use the Graphics Formats VIs to save the image data to a file. You can wire this output to the Concatenate Strings function to concatenate the output from multiple Picture Functions VIs so that they draw on a single picture control.|
