CurveCreateTextOutlines Method

Creates outline curves created from a text string. The functionality is similar to what you find in Rhino's TextObject command or TextEntity.Explode() in RhinoCommon.

Namespace:  Rhino.Geometry
Assembly:  RhinoCommon (in RhinoCommon.dll)
Syntax
public static Curve[] CreateTextOutlines(
	string text,
	string font,
	double textHeight,
	int textStyle,
	bool closeLoops,
	Plane plane,
	double smallCapsScale,
	double tolerance
)

Parameters

text
Type: SystemString
The text from which to create outline curves.
font
Type: SystemString
The text font.
textHeight
Type: SystemDouble
The text height.
textStyle
Type: SystemInt32
The font style. The font style can be any number of the following: 0 - Normal, 1 - Bold, 2 - Italic
closeLoops
Type: SystemBoolean
Set this value to True when dealing with normal fonts and when you expect closed loops. You may want to set this to False when specifying a single-stroke font where you don't want closed loops.
plane
Type: Rhino.GeometryPlane
The plane on which the outline curves will lie.
smallCapsScale
Type: SystemDouble
Displays lower-case letters as small caps. Set the relative text size to a percentage of the normal text.
tolerance
Type: SystemDouble
The tolerance for the operation.

Return Value

Type: Curve
An array containing one or more curves if successful.
