ok this is what im trying to do. i want the items name to show over the item that drops the the ground instead of it being on the top left. here is the code that im working with any idea how i can do that thanks

Code:
#include "XenItemSniffer.h"

bool XenItemSniffer::itemCompass = true;

XenItemSniffer::XenItemSniffer(IDirect3DDevice9 *pIDirect3DDevice9)
{
	this->pIDirect3DDevice9 = pIDirect3DDevice9;
	Initialize();
}

void XenItemSniffer::Initialize()
{
	xenMemory = new XenMemory();

	D3DVIEWPORT9 viewport;
	pIDirect3DDevice9->GetViewport(&viewport);

	screenWidth = viewport.Width;
	screenHeight = viewport.Height;

	scaleX = screenWidth / DEFAULTSCREENWIDTH;
	scaleY = screenHeight / DEFAULTSCREENHEIGHT;

	D3DXCreateTextureFromFile(pIDirect3DDevice9, ARROW_LOC, &arrowTexture);
	D3DXCreateSprite(pIDirect3DDevice9, &arrowSprite);

	ZeroMemory(&fitemList, sizeof(D3DXFONT_DESC));
	strcpy(fitemList.FaceName, "Arial");
	fitemList.Height = -16;
	D3DXCreateFontIndirect(pIDirect3DDevice9, &fitemList, &itemListFont);

	itemCompass = true;
}

void XenItemSniffer::Render()
{
	if(PacketHandler::itemSniffer && xenMemory->ReadPage() == 0) {
		int xLoc = xenMemory->ReadLocX();
		int yLoc = xenMemory->ReadLocY();

		if (!PacketHandler::itemsLock) {
			PacketHandler::itemsLock = true;

			itemList.clear();
			itemLocations.clear();
			for (int i = 0; i < PacketHandler::items.size(); ++i) {
				itemLocations.push_back(D3DXVECTOR2(PacketHandler::items[i].x, PacketHandler::items[i].y));

				string xDir = xLoc == PacketHandler::items[i].x ? "" : xLoc < PacketHandler::items[i].x ? "+" : "-";
				string yDir = yLoc == PacketHandler::items[i].y ? "" : yLoc < PacketHandler::items[i].y ? "+" : "-";
				itemList += PacketHandler::items[i].name + " X: " + Utils::ToString<int>(PacketHandler::items[i].x) + xDir + " Y: " + Utils::ToString<int>(PacketHandler::items[i].y) + yDir + "\n";
			}
			PacketHandler::itemsLock = false;
		}


		RECT itemSnifferTextRect = { 10, 75, 0, 0 };
		itemListFont->DrawText(NULL, itemList.c_str(), -1, &itemSnifferTextRect, DT_CALCRECT, 0);
