Working with Text


Using text in your GUIs

First, you could convert your ttf font file that you want to use to render the text using fontmaker. Then, create a TextPanel.


obj.myTextPanel:text('Hello World!')

Sample Implementation

The Techdemo includes a gui that uses text.

Editing lmf files in photoshop

Sometime you might want to make changes to the rendered bitmap inside the lmf font file. You can do that in Photoshop by following these instructions:

open as raw
channels count=1
channels depth=8 bits
header=5132 bytes
width/height gotten from output of fontmaker.exe. If you don't know them, they are powers of two, probably 256/512/1024.
