Generating image from text on the fly RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-333244544 posted


    I want to create a simple menu by using a site map, but having the nodes displayed as images, rather than text.

    I have found a few places on the web which discuss using JScript or ASP.NET to create an image on the fly from a text string.

    These are great if you know in advance that your text will fit into a specific size bitmap.  Unfortunmately, none of these works with dynamic lengths of strings, and this really what I would like to do.

    I'm not sure if Silverlight might be able to help me, but I would rather do all this server-side, because then I know for certain that the font I want to use is available :)

    (I do most of my programming in VB)
