How it works...
The Text class is a visual node intended to render textual shapes in the scene graph. It
provides powerful low-level properties and behaviors, which afford developers control over
raw text display. Let us explore the text properties used in this recipe:
F content:String —this is the actual text that will be displayed when the scene
graph is rendered.
F font:Font —this is an instance of the Font class which is used to specify the font
used for the rendered text.
F fill:Color —the fill property specifies the color or effect that is applied to the
rendered font.
F Stroke:Color —this property controls the color of the outline stroke of the letter
drawn. You can further control the stroke by applying property strokeWidth:Number
to specify the size of the outer stroke around the letter.
F letterSpacing:Number —this property specifies the space increment
between letters.
F oblique:Boolean —when set to true, this property attempts to algorithmically
render the font italicized, whether there is an available italic version of the font or not.
