Note

When the Graphics.SmoothingMode property is specified by using the None enumeration, it does not affect text. To set the text rendering quality, use the Graphics.TextRenderingHint property and the TextRenderingHint enumeration.

Note

When the Graphics.SmoothingMode property is specified by using the SmoothingMode enumeration, it does not affect areas filled by a path gradient brush. Areas filled by using a PathGradientBrush object are rendered the same way (aliased) regardless of the setting for the Graphics.SmoothingMode property.
