DOCERR: The brute Function dmExtTextOut Is Supported
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows Device Development Kit (DDK) for Windows, version 3.1
Section 188.8.131.52 (pg 133) of the Windows 3.1 Device Driver Kit's (DDK) Device Driver Adaptation Guide manual incorrectly states that there is currently no support for the dmExtTextOut() brute function. Windows 3.1 GDI does export a dmExtTextOut() function (ordinal 214). A printer driver may call dmExtTextOut() in response to a call to its ExtTextOut() function.
The function declaration is as follows:
LONG FAR PASCAL dmExtTextOut(LPBITMAP, short, short, LPRECT, LPSTR, short, LPFONTINFO, LPDRAWMODE, LPTEXTXFORM, PSHORT, LPRECT, WORD);
The return values are as defined for the ExtTextOut() documented on page 344 in Chapter 10 of the 3.1 DDK's "Device Driver Adaptation Guide" manual.
