<Image>.DrawText(<X-coordinate> , <Y-coordinate> , <Text> [, <Text color> [, <Management of &>]])
<Image>: picLayer variable

- corresponds to the color specified in the last call to <Image>.Pen.
<Management of &>: Optional boolean
- True (default value) if the "&" character must not be interpreted as an underline operator.
- False if the "&" character must be interpreted as an underline operator: the character following the "&" character will be underlined.
- The font used is "MS Sans Serif" (size 13).
- The writing direction is horizontal (from left to right).
- The coordinates of the upper-left corner of the image are (0,0).
- The "&" character is not interpreted.
Coordinates are specified with respect to the upper-left corner of the image (coordinates: (0.0)).
The coordinates correspond to the upper-left corner of the rectangle into which the text will be drawn. The precise location of the text in this rectangle depends on the size, shape and attributes of the font.
Management of '&'
The parameter <Management of & > makes it possible to manage the use of the '&' character.
- the "&" character must not be interpreted as an underline operator. For example:
MyLayer.DrawText(10, 10, "Tom&Jerry", LightRed, True)
will display "Tom&Jerry".
- the "&" character must be interpreted as an underline operator: the character following the "&" character will be underlined. For example:
MyLayer.DrawText(10, 10, "&Edit", LightRed, False)
will display "Edit".
