Fonts and String Display

An important part of any program is the capability to display text or other characters. Fastgraph provides the fg_print() function for string display, as well as font support functions for related tasks. In addition, Fastgraph includes its own scaleable, vector-based software character set. We'll begin this section with a discussion of fg_print() and how you can display strings in the active virtual buffer, or directly in the client area. Next, we'll show how to use different Windows fonts and then talk about Fastgraph's software characters. At the end of the section, we'll briefly explain how to implement your own bitmapped characters in a program.
