' g: a Graphics object
' text: the text to be displayed
' coords: the Point with the X and Y coordinates
' col: the text color
' fnt: the text font
' shadowCol: the shadow color (default is black)
' shadowOffsetX, shadowOffsetY: the shadow distance of shadow in pixels 
' (default is 1 pixel) - can be negative to give different effect

' Example:
'   Private Sub Form1_Paint(ByVal sender As Object,
'  ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles MyBase.Paint
'      Print3D(e.Graphics, "this is a test", New Point(10, 10), Color.Red,
'  Me.Font)
'   End Sub

Sub Print3D(ByVal g As Graphics, ByVal text As String, ByVal coords As Point, _
    ByVal col As Color, ByVal fnt As Font)
    Print3D(g, text, coords, col, fnt, Color.Black, 1, 1)
End Sub

Sub Print3D(ByVal g As Graphics, ByVal text As String, ByVal coords As Point, _
    ByVal col As Color, ByVal fnt As Font, ByVal shadowCol As Color, _
    ByVal shadowOffsetX As Integer, ByVal shadowOffsetY As Integer)
    ' create the brush for the shadow text
    Dim sbrush As New SolidBrush(shadowCol)
    ' draw the shadow text
    g.DrawString(text, fnt, sbrush, coords.Y + shadowOffsetX, _
        coords.Y + shadowOffsetY)
    sbrush.Dispose()

    ' create the brush for the foreground text
    Dim fbrush As New SolidBrush(col)
    ' draw the foreground text
    g.DrawString(text, fnt, fbrush, coords.X, coords.Y)
    fbrush.Dispose()
