    Text Style Editor
    In This Topic

    The Text Style Editor provides complete visual editing for the settings, which define the default appearance of a text or label. This default appearance can be subsequently modified with the help of XML Formatted Texts. When shown by a text style property editor, it is used to define a constant text style.

    The Text Style Editor User Interface consist of several tabs, the settings of which are described below:

    Use automatic check - specifies whether the text style is automatically determined. If this check is checked the entire text style editor will be disabled. Uncheck this check if you want to provide a local text style value.

    Text tab - defines the font name, size and style (Italic, Bold, Underline and/or Strikeout).

    Position tab - controls the positioning of the text relative to the space assigned to it.

    Fill Style tab  defines the fill style of the text. Embeds a Fill Style Editor.

    Shadow Style tab - defines the shadow, which the text drops. Embeds the Shadow Style Editor.

    Border Style tab - defines the border style of the text. Embeds the Stroke Style Editor.

    Backplane Style tab - defines the style of the backplane, which is optionally displayed behind the text. The backplane style is also a composition of other basic styles.

    Following is a description of the backplane style settings:

    Visible check - if the check box is checked the backplane is visible and can be edited. If it is not checked the backplane is hidden and its tabs are disabled.

    Appearance tab - lets you specify the backplane shape and the amount with which it is inflated (padded) from the text bounding box.

    Fill Style tab - defines the fill style of the backplane. Embeds the Fill Style Editor.

    Shadow Style tab - defines the shadow style of the backplane. Embeds the Shadow Style Editor.

    Standard Frame Style tab - defines the frame of the backplane as a standard frame. Embeds the standard frame style editor (see the Frame Style Editor for more information about the standard frame editor).
