Type Default Value Read Only Description
Double 0 No The width of character outlining.




This property determines whether a character outlining style is applied and the weight of the outline.

If the outline property is zero, no outlining is done. If the outline property is greater than zero, it indicates the width of lines used to outline the text.




In this example, we add some text to a document varying the outline style to show how different values affect the final result.

Set theDoc = Server.CreateObject("ABCpdf10.Doc")
theDoc.TextStyle.Size = 144
theDoc.AddText "Outline 0"
theDoc.Rect.Move 0, -300
theDoc.TextStyle.Outline = 4
theDoc.AddText "Outline 4"
theDoc.Rect.Move 0, -300
theDoc.TextStyle.Outline = 10
theDoc.AddText "Outline 10"
theDoc.Save "c:\mypdfs\styleoutline.pdf"
