Label Halo bug???

Feb 3, 2014 at 11:28 AM
Hi, I'm trying to set up a label layer but can't seem to get the halo working?

this is the code
       style.ForeColor = Color.MediumVioletRed; 
       style.Font = new Font(FontFamily.GenericSerif,25);
       style.Halo = new Pen(Color.Black, 4);
       return style;
I get the large red text, but no halo. I've tried several different colours and values but non show. Is this currently working in V1.0?

I cannot verify the issue you are seeing. Halo works as expected on my machine.

I'll wait and see if the v1.1 release fixes it on my machine. Could you post the code that you are using?

It won't be effected by transformations or anything will it?

The only thing I can think of is if you are overriding it with a theme.

I'm doing this within a theme. So this code is inside the theme delegate method. It returns a labelstyle.

I'll add some extended code samples tomorrow to give the question more context.
