Cleaner GDI Drawing

Posted 31 January 2010 - 07:07 PM

I am making a Graphing Library and need some help to make it look better, this is what it currently looks like:

I am already using these options:

PixelOffsetMode = PixelOffsetMode.HighQuality;
SmoothingMode = SmoothingMode.HighQuality;
InterpolationMode = InterpolationMode.HighQualityBilinear;


Are there any special ways to smooth the Pixels to make it look better? I really want this to look like Office 2007 style graphs.

Thanks.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

If you zoom in to the graphics with
rendered by using the
SmoothingMode=SmoothingMode.HighQuality...

doesn't renders good quality graphics....

you can use windows Magnifier... to see the difference between graphics rendered by different SmoothingModes...

You should use SmoothingMode.AntiAlias....

Or get have a look at this attached image which.... is a reasearch ive done in the past....
