    rotate screen by XX degrees?

    hello
    Any way(API or something) to write a program which rotates the whole content of a screen by XX degrees? I have searched google, found something on MSDN sites for Windows CE:

    ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...settingsex.asp )

    I need something similar for Windows2000. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I also searched the board on this but couldnt find anything, so any help would be really appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    You mean you don't want to just go into the graphics properties of your desktop and change the settings there? You want to do this through a program you're going to write when there is probably something built in that will do this already?

    [edit]Although I guess those options typically only let you rotate by 90/180/270 degrees... which might not help you if you want something weird like 32 degrees.[/edit]

    no.. I was wondering if there was any general way to do it (edit: by programming, not doing it manually).

    Not all graphic drivers installs any program to rotate the screen (which is added by drivers for other graphic cards when you right click on the desktop in graphics properties)
