Font.Antialiased Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the text is antialiased.

Namespace: Aurigma.GraphicsMill.Drawing
Assembly: Aurigma.GraphicsMill (in Aurigma.GraphicsMill.dll)


public bool Antialiased { get; set; }

Property Value

true if the text is antialiased; otherwise, false. The default value is true.


Antialiased text is looking smooth, displayed with high quality. However it works slower than displaying text without antialiasing.

Antialiasing can be applied only to full-color bitmaps. When drawing on indexed bitmaps, antialiasing cannot be used by its nature.


If the Graphics was created on the base of the Bitmap which has Format8bppGrayscale pixel format, antialiasing will not be applied for text output. The reason of this issue is that GDI does not support grayscale bitmaps. That's why Graphics Mill represents this image as Format8bppIndexed bitmap with grayscale palette.
