Create a diagonal text box in GUI (rotate axis)?

17 views (last 30 days)
I'm trying to create a text box within my GUI (not using guide) that is at an upward 45 degree angle to the positive x-axis.
I've tried to create an axis within my GUI, add the text to the axis and then rotate the axis. Is this possible? I cannot seem to find a way to do it? Or is there some other method for doing this?

create a hggroup() and parent the axes within that. Then you can apply a hgtransform() to the axes.
However: if you only need a single text line changed, then you would probably be better off using a text() object and setting its Rotation property. Or use this method if your box only needs to contain text objects and no graphics objects; the box itself can be easily constructed using line()
