Yes, it's possible. Oh, you also wanna know how to do it? Oh. Look at the DrawText API, it does as you expect. Draws text on to DC's bitmap. It draws text in the color set by SetTextColor, with a background color set by SetBkColor. To make life simple, choose a bitmap with a solid color where the text goes. If that's not possible, oh boy, you got lots more work to do double buffering, making masks on the fly for the text, cutting a hole in the bitmap for the text, then layering it in with the correct blit. Nope, got no example code either.
