TextRenderingMode Enumeration

Defines the supported rendering modes for text.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public enum TextRenderingMode
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
AutoText is rendered with the most appropriate rendering algorithm based on the layout mode that was used to format the text.
AliasedText is rendered with bilevel anti-aliasing.
GrayscaleText is rendered with grayscale anti-aliasing.
ClearTypeText is rendered with the most appropriate ClearType rendering algorithm based on the layout mode that was used to format the text.

The Grayscale anti-aliasing algorithm chooses the appropriate ClearType algorithm to get bitmap representations for the glyphs. The intensity of the red, green, and blue channels of a pixel of rendered text is the value of the green channel in the corresponding pixel of the bitmap representation of the glyph.
