Enum FontSmoothingType

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<FontSmoothingType>, Constable

public enum FontSmoothingType
extends Enum<FontSmoothingType>
The FontSmoothingType enum is used to specify the preferred mechanism used to smooth the edges of fonts for on-screen text.

  • Enum Constant Details

    • GRAY

      public static final FontSmoothingType GRAY
      Specifies the default gray scale smoothing, which is most suitable for graphics and animation uses.
    • LCD

      public static final FontSmoothingType LCD
      Specifies sub-pixel LCD text, which utilises characteristics of digital LCD display panels to achieve increased pixel resolution. This mode is generally appropriate where the important factor is legibility of static text, particularly at small sizes.

      A request for LCD text is a 'hint', since the implementation may need to ignore it under conditions such as compositing modes which do not support it. It follow that where LCD text is important that the application should avoid use of effects, transparency etc.

    • values

      public static FontSmoothingType[] values()
      Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared.

    • valueOf

      public static FontSmoothingType valueOf​(String name)
      Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
      name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
      the enum constant with the specified name
      IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
