Draws a string based on a font, a layout rectangle, and a format
Code examples:
Custom GDI+ class
GpStatus WINGDIPAPI GdipDrawString(
    GpGraphics *graphics,
    GDIPCONST WCHAR *string,
    INT length,
    GDIPCONST GpFont *font,
    GDIPCONST RectF *layoutRect,
    GDIPCONST GpStringFormat *stringFormat,
    GDIPCONST GpBrush *brush

FoxPro declaration:
DECLARE INTEGER GdipDrawString IN gdiplus;
    INTEGER   graphics,;
    STRING    widechar,;
    INTEGER   length,;
    INTEGER   fnt,;
    STRING  @ rectf,;
    INTEGER   stringFormat,;
    INTEGER   brush
[in] Pointer to a Graphics object.

[in] Pointer to a wide-character string to be drawn.

[in] Integer that specifies the number of characters in the string array. The length parameter can be set to 1 if the string is null terminated.

[in] Pointer to a Font object that specifies the font attributes (the family name, the size, and the style of the font) to use.

[in] Reference to a rectangle (of floats) that bounds the string.

[in] Pointer to a StringFormat object that specifies text layout information and display manipulations to be applied to the string.

[in] Pointer to a Brush object that is used to fill the string.
Return value:
If the method succeeds, it returns Ok (0), which is an element of the Status enumeration.
My comment:
Note that the layoutRect structure contains four 32-bit float numbers, not four 32-bit INT numbers.

Presented in this reference GDI+ class uses float2int conversion routine to populate this structure:
FUNCTION RECTF(nLeft, nTop, nRight, nBottom)
RETURN num2dword(Int2Float(nLeft)) + num2dword(Int2Float(nTop)) +;
        num2dword(Int2Float(nRight)) + num2dword(Int2Float(nBottom))
