Description netel 2012-04-02 06:13:26 UTC
ShowText("歡迎使用") can not be support.

Please pass the value to the unmanaged dll in cairo_showtext() function when using the byte[] or by [MarshalAs()] Statement This is a c-style string;

use System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(string) Can be get the byte[]

FWIW, the Cairo text API has a "toy" layout engine, for good text layout you should use Pango.
