#855 new defect

d.text: rotate needs to rotate the background box too

Description (last modified by hamish)


as pointed out by Rich Shepard on the users mailing list, d.text fails to also rotate the background color-box along with the text.

there is already rendering code in d.labels to do this, it just needs to be incorporated into the d.text code.

Also, if you had set the background color to "none" it was still getting drawn but using the same color as the text. I've just fixed that in 6.5svn (r40214). Previously the test for drawing background was just if the bgcolor= option was used at all.

Will this eventually end up in the 64th release?

Replying to nikos:

Will this eventually end up in the 64th release?

before considering backporting options from the development branches to the stable branches, first it has to be working properly in the development version. so far it isn't.
