sorry to tell you but doing this would require you to generate graphics based on font data. getting the points of a font outline is not so easy. I have not found a way.
if you were to create a font file that you can reference for each letter or character then you could do this.
just so you know. it is possible see
I cannot give you the code to do it as its thousands of lines of code with many class libraries.
my font file requires the use of arcs, and lines. no splines.
this font file is actually the font file that my machine shop uses to create their engraving paths.
these are temporary bodies. no feature associated with it.
create segment bodies for each piece. each letter is many bodies. they are then combined later.
the other option is to just do OPEN GL graphics on the screen
this is much faster
Hello Mr. Jacob Corder,
many thanks for the answer.
So I had suspected it.
Had however hoped that there was a simpler way.
Something similar I haved programmed already.
But I have gone the simple way and have use the "GraphicPath class" from the .NET environment.
With this you can then also add text and convert the splines of the glyphs into lines.
So I will go this way again.
Thanks again - super forum!
Best Regards George Most
