The text i am drawing is the glyph that is obtained from layout manaer.II am getting the spiral shape but the characters get scattered. I made use of archemedian spiral .But i want the textt to be placed with a distance same as in entered text. Please help me in this regard.Thanks in advance.
  • Does the example project at file:///Developer/Examples/AppKit/
    CircleView do what you need? In what way not?

    And what do you mean by "but the characters get scattered?"

  • I had seen that circle view example and in that case the text is displayed in  circular shape. Like wise i want the text to appear in spiral shape.
    The character gets scattered means the distance between 2 character goes on increasing whihc seems to be appeared like scattering.
    The distance is not as in case of display of circular shape.
