Stroke outside of text, not inside


Recommended Posts

How do I stroke the outside of a font? font.drawStroke seems to stroke the inside of the font.

Something like this: http://jsfiddle.net/vNWn6/ (as shown in this issue here: https://github.com/melonjs/melonJS/issues/299)

Your example, here https://melonjs.github.io/melonJS/examples/font_test/, doesn't seem to show clearly how to do this.


My code:

game.ClickableEntity = me.Entity.extend({
	init: function(x, y, settings) {

        this.color = 'black';
        this.font = new me.Font('Verdana', 14, this.color);
        this.font.lineWidth = 1;
    draw: function(renderer) {
        this.font.draw(renderer, this.text, (this.width/2)-10, (this.height/2)-10);
        this.font.drawStroke(renderer, this.text, (this.width/2)-10, (this.height/2)-10);

How mine currently looks in game:

Hi, actually the current implementation is correct in the sense that it complies with the html5 font API, where font.drawStroke() strokes the outline of the letters while font.draw() fills the inside of the letters. As you can see on the below example, the outline stroke is actually the "edge" of the letter and not outside of it :



looks like you have an issue due to a "too low res" ?
