    If you want to display text on the window, the easiest way is with the TextOut() function.

    Code:
    PAINTSTRUCT ps;
    int x=0, y=0;
    char szBuffer[]="Hello world";
    HDC hdc=BeginPaint(hwnd, &ps);
    
    SetBkMode(hdc, TRANSPARENT);  //Sets background transparent
    TextOut(hdc, x, y, szBuffer, strlen(szBuffer));
    
    EndPaint(hwnd, &ps);
    Remember to include <string.h> if you use strlen().
