Hi,

I am making a GUI in visual c++ and using OpenGL for drawing. I want to read a word from text file and print it on openGL screen.I need to read the word to be printed from file, as well as its x & y co-ordinates also from file. Can anyone suggest how to go about?

That is not hard to do. First you need to read about file IO. Here is a good introductory article http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/files/[^]

Once you are learn how to do, you need to come up with your data storage format. May be this may help. I would write in each line, the x-coordinate, the y-coordinate and the text

10,10,Hello World
10,20,Here I come
