[Gambas-user] Method Paint.DrawText unclear

The method paint.DrawText is always puzzling me, because a variation of
Width, Height and Alignment has no visual impact and the range of
applicable Integer parameters for Alignment is undefined.

For example: The following commands provide 100% identical results:

Paint.DrawText("Hello", 0, 0, 0, 0)

Paint.DrawText("Hello", 0, 0, 100, 100)

Paint.DrawText("Hello", 0, 0, 0)

Paint.DrawText("Hello", 0, 0, 10)

and I tried several integers as Alignment-parameter without any visible
change. Which parameters are allowed and what do they do?

Since the wiki didn't solve my problem I kindly ask for help to
understand the parameters.
