Draws text to the screen. Displays the information specified in the first parameter on the screen in the position specified by the additional parameters. A default font will be used unless a font is set with the
PtextFont function and a default size will be used unless a font is set with
PtextSize. Change the color of the text with the
Pfill function. The text displays in relation to the
PtextAlign function, which gives the option to draw to the left, right, and center of the coordinates.
The x2 and y2 parameters define a rectangular area to display within and may only be used with string data. When these parameters are specified, they are interpreted based on the current
PrectMode setting. Text that does not fit completely within the rectangle specified will not be drawn to the screen.
Note that Processing now lets you call
Ptext without first specifying a PFont with
PtextFont. In that case, a generic sans-serif font will be used instead.
