POLYTEXTW The POLYTEXT structure describes how the PolyTextOut function should draw a string of text.
RASTERIZER_STATUS The RASTERIZER_STATUS structure contains information about whether TrueType is installed. This structure is filled when an application calls the GetRasterizerCaps function.
RGBQUAD The RGBQUAD structure describes a color consisting of relative intensities of red, green, and blue.
RGBTRIPLE The RGBTRIPLE structure describes a color consisting of relative intensities of red, green, and blue. The bmciColors member of the BITMAPCOREINFO structure consists of an array of RGBTRIPLE structures.
RGNDATA The RGNDATA structure contains a header and an array of rectangles that compose a region. The rectangles are sorted top to bottom, left to right. They do not overlap.
RGNDATAHEADER The RGNDATAHEADER structure describes the data returned by the GetRegionData function.
TEXTMETRICA The TEXTMETRIC structure contains basic information about a physical font. All sizes are specified in logical units; that is, they depend on the current mapping mode of the display context.
