All of my text appears jagged and pixelated.
I calibrated my PC clear type settings (all fonts are smooth).
However, in the Form Designer of VS, the text on buttons, labels, etc are not.
I've tried the working code below (please try the code)
Imports System.Drawing.Text Public Class Form1 Private Sub Form1_Paint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles MyBase.Paint Dim myChosenFont As New Font("Times New Roman", 75, FontStyle.Bold, GraphicsUnit.Pixel) e.Graphics.DrawString("Antialiasing Off", myChosenFont, Brushes.Black, 10, 10) e.Graphics.TextRenderingHint = TextRenderingHint.AntiAliasGridFit e.Graphics.DrawString("Antialiasing On", myChosenFont, Brushes.Black, 10, 80) End Sub End Class
Although it works, for reasons unknown to me:
-It does not smooth out any pre-existing text created by the form designer.
-It does not work on my buttons, labels, textboxes, etc..
-It only draws new text programatically to the form itself only.
Determined but unsuccesful, I tried the links below and attempted these to no avail:

Is there a way to antialias smooth text throughout my entire project?
If so, could someone please provide a working example for me to use?
