[java] Nice outline font in java

Recommended Posts

Do anyone know how to do nice outline font in java like the one you can see in for instance flash and photoshop. Currently I'm using something like this:
    if (outline)
    {
        m_g2d.setColor(outlineColor);
        m_g2d.drawString(text, -1, 0);
        m_g2d.drawString(text, 1, 0);
        m_g2d.drawString(text, 0, -1);
        m_g2d.drawString(text, 0, 1);
    }

    m_g2d.setColor(color);
    m_g2d.drawString(text, 0, 0);

I have also tried approaches similar to this: http://www.java2s.com/Code/Java/2D-Graphics-GUI/OutlineFontpaint.htm But neither produces a nice and clean outline text. Lizard
