Draws a text string without any special effects.

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


Visual Basic
Public Sub DrawString ( _
	s As String, _
	font As Font, _
	brush As SolidBrush, _
	point As Point, _
	kernings As Integer() _
public void DrawString(
	string s,
	Font font,

	Point point,
	int[] kernings



Type: System.String

String to draw.

Type: Aurigma.GraphicsMill.Drawing.Font

Font object specifying text rendering options.

Type: Aurigma.GraphicsMill.Drawing.SolidBrush

SolidBrush object containing font color.

Type: System.Drawing.Point

Text output point. Actual position of the text relatively this point is defined with HorizontalAlignment and VerticalAlignment properties of the font argument.

Type: System.Int32 []

Array of kerning modifiers. The first entry of this array specify additional distance (may be negative) between first and second character of the string; the second entry specifies additional distance between second and third character, etc.


All the coordinates are measured in units specified with Unit property.


If you draw text on indexed bitmaps, antialiasing is disabled regardless to the Antialiased property value. Also, if the GdiGraphics 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 for .NET represents this image as Format8bppIndexed bitmap with grayscale palette.
