resultant text height

A few days ago I posted a question about how to get the height of a block of
text (see subject "getting height of a block of text"). The only answer I
got was to use Silverlight. I am a newbie at a lot of this.I had not heard
of Silverlight before. I did some investigating and found nothing that helps
me on this. Not that there isn't anything, I just wasn't able to find it. In
addition, at my client's requiest, I am to do my best to build this
application so that it does not require the use of any browser plugins. Does
anyone know of some sort of server side tool that I could use to do this?

On a side note, my client is currently using Crystal on the server for some
realted reporting. I know this is nto the group to ask Crystal questions,
but I'm wondering if that might be used to do this.

Also wondering, because I'm not entirely sure, is this the right newsgroup
to which to post this sort of question (not the Crystal part, but the part
above that)?

Thanks again,

I'm having a problem with an inherited label, applying text rotation to aligned text. If text rotation is applied to the aligned text, the alignment goes 'nuts'.

I would like to add text to an image. I have tried to use DrawString and it works on some images but on others it is very very small. I am pretty sure it has something to do with the size of the image but I have had varying results on multiple images. Is there anyway to make the text a fixed size on the image. Similar to putting a date on a photograph.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
