Call this member function to write a character string within a rectangular region using the currently selected font.
virtual BOOL ExtTextOut( int x, int y, UINT nOptions, LPCRECT lpRect, LPCTSTR lpszString, UINT nCount, LPINT lpDxWidths ); BOOL ExtTextOut( int x, int y, UINT nOptions, LPCRECT lpRect, const CString& str, LPINT lpDxWidths );
The rectangular region can be opaque (filled with the current background color), and it can be a clipping region.
If nOptions is 0 and lpRect is NULL, the function writes text to the device context without using a rectangular region. By default, the current position is not used or updated by the function. If an application needs to update the current position when it calls ExtTextOut, the application can call the CDC member function SetTextAlign with nFlags set to TA_UPDATECP. When this flag is set, Windows ignores x and y on subsequent calls to ExtTextOut and uses the current position instead. When an application uses TA_UPDATECP to update the current position, ExtTextOut sets the current position either to the end of the previous line of text or to the position specified by the last element of the array pointed to by lpDxWidths, whichever is greater.
