Is there anyway to create a rectangle and put text into it?

Hi Snelldl,

Have you found out how to put a text in a rectangle? Could you explain it a bit?

I just started using Kit3D to develop a 3D chart component where I have to display a text under each axis. I have looked at WPF example where they pass a TextBlock object into a VisualBrush object to complete the task.

However, since Kit3D has no VisualBrush available, does anyone know how I can convert a text into an image so it can be rotated in 360 degree?

Thanks in advance

I ended up making my own letters - I trimmed my project needs down to using Roman numerals, so I only needed a few and they all had straight lines - I V X L


I suspect that silverlight 3 has the ability to do that because of some new graphics capabilities, but I'm not sure if you could then used the rectangles in Kit3D.
