AntiAlias on Shape meter in help

balala » February 3rd, 2017, 11:31 am

A while ago I've posted a code of a Shape meter, which had set the AntiAlis=1 option. Then jsmorley said it's not needed for the Shape meters.
Now I just saw that on the example code posted to the Shape meter help page in manual, this option is present (just) on the [MeterRoundedRectangle] meter. I suppose it remaind there after the author copied a code of another meter, but if it's not needed, please remove it, to not bother anyone.

FIxed. Thanks.

A little known fact with our D2D rendering system is that the AntiAlias option is not needed in most cases on the meters that draw with D2D. String meters can use it, and sometimes Image meters use it (but not always), however, no other drawing function in Rainmeter that uses D2D utilizes AntiAlias as this time.

This is likely to change over time as we convert more meters to D2D and remove dependency on GDI+.
