What is the best alternative to FreeType for C#? does OpenTK have anything built into it to help with rendering text?
thanks. took a second but I got it up and running
Ok, ran into my first issues with QuickFont.
GL.Clear(ClearBufferMask.ColorBufferBit | ClearBufferMask.DepthBufferBit | ClearBufferMask.StencilBufferBit);
int qFontLine = 0;
InfFont.Print("FPS: " + Math.Round(RenderFrequency, 2), new Vector2(0, 0));
InfFont.Print(new String('\n', ++qFontLine) + "X: " + Math.Round(camCoord.X, 2));
InfFont.Print(new String('\n', ++qFontLine) + "Y: " + Math.Round(camCoord.Y, 2));
InfFont.Print(new String('\n', ++qFontLine) + "Z: " + Math.Round(camCoord.Z, 2));
InfFont.Print(new String('\n', ++qFontLine) + "H-Angle: " + Math.Round(camAngle.Y, 2));
InfFont.Print(new String('\n', ++qFontLine) + "V-Angle: " + Math.Round(camAngle.X, 2));
now when I run this, the coordsys that I draw disappears. Is there something about quickfont that clears the screen at QFont.Begin or QFont.Print, etc... that is causing everything else to disappear?
took some time but I finally figured it out.
using GL.PushAttrib(AttribMask.ColorBufferBit); before
and GL.PopAttrib(); after the Qfont render allowed for both to be drawn, and both bright (I saw some other people had dimming issues)
You can use AltSketch. It has AltNETType - C# port of FreeType. Look at AltSketch C# vector graphics library
AltNETType (transformation + centering + kerning)
AltSketch also contains high level classes to operate with fonts (system fonts, custom font files) in System.Drawing.Font style. High level AltSketch render system can draw raster & vectorized outline data.
