    That sort of information is given out for free at msdn. Or even dare I say it read your compilers help-files. If there is anything you dont understand after doing your own preliminary research come back and highlight to us the bit you don't understand and you will get some help.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :-

    This is how you use textout:

    CDC *pDC;
    int x;
    int y;
    CString strData;

    strData = "Hello World";

    pDC->textOut(x, y, strData);

    This assumes that you are in your Cwd, or CFramewnd Class.

    Hope this helps!

    Post some more details.

    Are you using C or C++ or MFC?
    Do you have the HDC?

    Get more specific and we will help.
