I'm writing an application that prints numerous types of reports. In some
cases, in the routine that prints the report, I need to shade a rectangular
area behind some text that's already been printed using Canvas.Textout.
I've tried several different styles and modes for the Pen and Brush but
every time, when I use the FillRect procedure to create the shaded area, the
text that was underneath the shaded area is no longer visible on the
printout. Is there some particular combination of styles and modes that
will allow that shaded area to be drawn and still allow previously output
text to show through? Thanks in advance for any help...
