Strategy to Show Messages on Form Showing Vid

  • 12 years ago

    I'm Showing Videos on a WinForm and the Bounds of the Video are videoWidth = form.Width videoHeight = form.Width * videoHeight / videoWidth videoX = 0 videoY = (form.Height - videoHeight) / 2 So the Video will Always be placed in the Center of the Form and Stretched to the Width of the Form and Height/YLoc Adjusted Accordingly. The Form's Backcolor is Black. Depending upon the Video's Width to Height Ratio the Video's YLoc will be >=0. Now I can Need to Show the Messages onto the Form at the same Location (say 20, 20) Irrespective of the Video's YLoc. To show Messages I can 1) ONLY Paint Text on the Form at Fixed Loc. Problem - If the Video's YLoc = 0, then my Text would not be shown 2) ONLY Write Text Directly onto the Video. Text's Location will always depend on the Video's YLoc. So what I see is that I need to use a combination of the above two methods. So What can you suggest? Thanks...
