Is there a way to bow the text of a TextBlock to make it look semi-circular Thanks

Another way to say with would be curved text. Thanks

Hello, if you can use several TextBlocks instead of one, you can apply RotateTransform to them so the text will appear to be curved.

Ouch that sounds a little tedious but thanks!

Hello,

Another option available to consider for achieving this look is to contain a your textblock within a VisualBrush, projected onto a 3D curved surface - ie a sphere/cylinder MeshGeometry, and examined through a perspective camera. For authentic looking bow effects, this would likely be a simpler choice for getting "true to life" perspective effects to work as we percieve them in space.

Yeah, I thought about that but I didn't want to take the Perf hit. But good idea. Thanks!
