VC++ MFC Example: Extend draw text with ExtTextOut

 
Victor Ricklefs. 

Extended version of ExtTextOut supporting the subscripts and superscripts

Sample Image - SSTextOut.jpg

Introduction

Recently I have been searching internet on how to show subscripts and superscripts in the device context (when using TextOut or ExtTextOut functions). But I could not find anything. So finally I decided to write the function myself.

Features and how to use

My function SSTextOut has the similar functionality to ExtTextOut. You need to specify the pointer to the device context, the pointer to bounding rectangle, the string itself, and the justification mode.

The string should contain special formatting codes - "^" for superscript and "_" for subscript. The next symbol after "^" or "_" wil be shown as subscript or superscript. If you need to show ^ or _ themselves - just type them twice - "^^" or "__".

Justification can be DT_CENTER, DT_LEFT, or DT_RIGHT. It affects only horizontal justification. Vertically, the text will be centered in the bounding rectangle automatically. The text outside the rectangle is clipped. The function uses the current font of the specified device context.

So, to draw the meaningless text in the image above you need to call:

SSTextOut(pDC,"ms^2/Hz+H_2O-mc^^2__4",&rect,DT_CENTER);

Source code

Below is the source code of SSTextOut:

void SSTextOut(CDC* pDC, CString data , CRect* drawRect, int justification)

 //Neccessary initializations

 pDC->SaveDC();
 
 CSize sz;

 CFont* pFont = pDC->GetCurrentFont();
 CFont* oldFont;
 pDC->SetTextAlign(TA_BOTTOM|TA_LEFT);

 LOGFONT lf;
 pFont->GetLogFont(&lf);

 // Calculate subscript/superscript size and offsets
