Property Value

The value specifying if text should be antialiased.


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 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.

Default value is true.
