Parameters

device Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.Device
A Device object that represents the device associated with the text mesh.
font System.Drawing.Font
A FontLeave Site object that creates the mesh.
text System.String
String that specifies the text to generate.
deviation System.Single
Maximum chordal deviation from font outlines.

Remarks

Each element contains information about the position and orientation of the corresponding glyph in the string. The number of elements in the array should be equal to the number of characters in the string. Note that the origin in each structure is not relative to the entire string, but rather is relative to that character cell. To compute the entire bounding box, add the increment for each glyph while traversing the string.

Exceptions
InvalidCallException The method call is invalid. For example, a method's parameter might contain an invalid value.
