Basic text drawing?

Postby Patton » Sat Jan 19, 2008 6:08 pm

Is there a simple way to do some basic text drawing in a OpenGL created view?
I need to display a few floats for debugging purposes on screen in every frame.

Drawing text

You can use canvas.drawText in the onDraw method of your glview

canvas.drawText(String message, int x, int y, Paint paint)

You can take a look at ...
(the source of monolith android)

The onDraw method uses this method to draw the status text for the game.
