I am working on porting my GUI code to OpenTK.
I am doing the font parts now. I have been reviewing the OpenTK system for TextPrinting and I need some guidance.
It appears that OpenTK's Font system is designed to work in immediate mode. My GUI uses Framebuffers, VBO's, and GLSL. It seems that the basic design of the TextPrinter is to convert a string into a series of texture mapped vertexes. Since, I am already managing the matrices for the other GUI elements, would I be painting myself into a corner to limit my use of TextPrinter to producing the texture mapped vertexes and do the drawing myself?
Thanks in advance.
