Antialiasing Text

Antialiasing Text

Hi - I have a project that requires the text in a textbox or label to be antialiased. Last week I found an ocx that did just that. I did not bookmark the webpage and cannot find it again. (Searched through my History; - Searched through google for any keyword that is related; - Searched through my Temporary Internet Files for the GIFs and JPGs to find the images from the site - it has two ovals with the text: This is your text before antialiasing and this is your text after antialiasing.) I can't find it!
Has anyone come across this site. The author was asking a reasonable price (about $30).
Has anyone seen this webpage?

RE: Antialiasing Text

You can do it yourself, see
see the sample at the bottom.

you'll want to set the logfonts lfQuality value to ANTIALIASED_QUALITY


Two strings walk into a bar. The first string says to the bartender: 'Bartender, I'll have a beer. u.5n$x5t?*&4ru!2[sACC~ErJ'. The second string says: 'Pardon my friend, he isn't NULL terminated'.

Hi DrJavaJoe


That is pretty cool!

I would be overjoyed (and I'm pretty happy) if I could figure out a way to render the fonts at the smaller sizes (10 or 12) because they look fantastic at 20 and above. I mean really fantastic! I tried 'StretchBlt'ing them down and it is passable, but I have been part of a very good graphics project and the results (at smaller sizes) should be a bit better.

This great tip has been VERY appreciated - THANX!
