RE: Rotate label 90 degrees



An ugly way. Set each char with "\n", which means if your text is "abc", set it with "a\nb\nc\n".

The text in my labels are not static (but semi static), so I'll need to 
be able to generate these within my application.
I have some loose idea about how this could be done, but I'm still 
looking for how to do it using gtk, gdk and their friends.

My loose idea is:
1) make the label with horizontal text (gtk_label_new())
2) grab it as a pixmap (but how?)
3) rotate the pixmap (but how?)
4) insert rotated pixmap (probably using gtk_image_new_from_pixmap())

Is this feasible and how do I solve 2) and 3)?

Best regards
