[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Specifies the quality of text rendering.

The following tables list the members exposed by the TextRenderingHint type.

  NameDescription
static memberAntiAliasEach character is drawn using its antialiased glyph bitmap without hinting. Better quality due to antialiasing. Stem width differences may be noticeable because hinting is turned off.
static memberAntiAliasGridFitEach character is drawn using its antialiased glyph bitmap with hinting. Much better quality due to antialiasing, but at a higher performance cost.
static memberClearTypeGridFitEach character is drawn using its glyph ClearType bitmap with hinting. The highest quality setting. Used to take advantage of ClearType font features.
static memberSingleBitPerPixelEach character is drawn using its glyph bitmap. Hinting is not used.
static memberSingleBitPerPixelGridFitEach character is drawn using its glyph bitmap. Hinting is used to improve character appearance on stems and curvature.
static memberSystemDefaultEach character is drawn using its glyph bitmap, with the system default rendering hint. The text will be drawn using whatever font-smoothing settings the user has selected for the system.
