Parameters

hdc
Handle to a device context.

text
Text string.

destRect
Rectangle to be used as the display destination rectangle.

textStyle
Text style. Use this parameter to control the style and justification of the three-dimensional text. For valid values refer to SpecialEffectsTextStyle.

textAlignment
Text Alignment, For valid values refer to SpecialEffectsTextAlignmentFlags.

xDepth
Horizontal shadow position.

yDepth
Vertical shadow position.

textColor
Text color.

shadowColor
Shadow color.

hiliteColor
Border color.

textHfont
A handle to a System.Drawing.Font object that will be used for drawing the 3D text.

foreImageHdc
a handle to a System.Drawing.Graphics object that will be used to place an image (such as a gradient) on the surface of the three-dimensional text. Use null to paint the color specified in textColor.

Remarks

Use the textStyle and textAlignment parameters to control the style and justification of the three-dimensional text. Use the textFont parameter to place an image (such as a gradient) on the surface of the three-dimensional text.
