Landscape textbox

P: n/a
Hello All.
I am trying to create a textbox that can display text in landscape (font
rotated 90 degrees anti clockwise, and text read from bottom to top, not left
to right... ie

portrait

+---------+
|nnnn ::: |
|::::: nn |
+---------+

landscape

+---------+
|.. c |
|.. c |
|.. |

|c .. |
|c .. |
|c .. |
|c .. |
+---------+

nice.
I tried overriding the onpaint event in an inherited control class, but the
drawn text remains in portrait. Why, why, why?

Am i barking up the wrong tree? Do i need to rewrite the internet?
As you can probably tell, i don't know which direction i need to go..so all
help will be greatly received.
Cheers,
James.
