Set text to display only outline instead of solid text using IPXC_ContentCreator

Post by mmasood » Thu Apr 08, 2021 11:19 pm

Hi,

I am using Core Api version 7.0.326.0.

I am working with C#. This is the line of code that i am using.

Code: Select all

contentCreator.ShowTextBlock(curText, pRect, pRect, nFlags, nTextLen, pCharFmt, pParaFmt, pCallbacks, out pTextBounds);
The value of curText is:

Code: Select all

<body><p style="font-family:'Arial'; font-size:24pt; line-height:normal; text-align:center;"><span style="color:#ff0000">Sample Text</span></p></body>
the output with this text is a solid filled text that is displayed on the page according to the coordinates given in the rectangle.

I want the output to be just the outline of the letters instead of solid fill. How do I achieve this?

I have tried used "text-shadow" and "text-stroke" properties but they do not do anything.

Regards,
M

Hello mmasood,

If the XFA Specification allows this - we should be able to output such a text.
What you will need is the Rich Text part that is 27 in the XFA 3.3 Specification.

Cheers,
Alex
