Re: Write vertical text

In Python:

from subs import *
m = makeMaps('x','x','y','y')
d = makeDisplay2D(m)
d.drawString('my string', [0, 0], up=[-.1, 0., 0.], base=[0., .1, 0.] )
d.showDisplay()

This illustrates the use of the 'up' and 'base' parameters that is applicable to the PlotText.render_label() as well. The beauty of Python & VisAD is that it allows you to prototype very quickly.

Hope that helps.
