Turning text box/label upside down

    I'm thinking of an app where two people sit face to face around the device.

    Therefor some controls like labels, text boxes or buttons should be presented upside down.

    Buttons are not a problem as I could use image buttons with images already turned. But how can I turn labels or text boxes upside down?

    One idea I had is to change labels on a second hidden form, capture and rotate them graphically using dzt's lib and present it on the main form.

    Will this work?
    Do I better have to write a special lib?
    Any other ideas?

    Thanks in adavance,
    Stefan

    I think that the best solution is to create a Bitmap with ImageLib.
    Write the text on this bitmap with Drawer.DrawString and then rotate it with dzt's library.
    You can show the bitmap with an Image control.
