How to draw multiline text with proper background?


Recommended Posts

Pixi.js is a great lib and it did help me a lot in building webgl-based apps. 

But when I try to render text with background, I run into some problem:

  1.  PIXI.Text has no straight way to fill a text with background

ok.I tried to search the forum and find some methods like, I can use PIXI.Grahpics to draw a Rect or RoundedRect , then combine the text and the rounded shape into a container so it looks like the text has a background;

In single line text, it appears so good but is this a right way?

  2. I can't find a way to build 'tight' background with multi line text;

What do I mean a 'tight' background? See the pic below:



(the pic comes from https://css-tricks.com/multi-line-padded-text/ and if u read the article u can learn some tricks to make these special background in css)

Well, come back to PIXI.js. I know that the text sprite is certainly a Rectangle by default, so when I add a 'background sprite' it's also a Rectangle:)

And I find some useful filters like OutlineFilter but it can't use to outline a text , and I'm not an expert in writing gl shaders.

Has anyone met the situation before(render multiline text with background) or can give me some advice? Thanks very much.
