how to antialias text on buttons and other winform controls

P: n/a
Are there any options to enable an antialias function on standard
winform controls ?

things like the displayed text on buttons , radio buttons and other
standard controls look a bit jagged and stuff, is it possible to
antialis the text that gets entered into the text property of the
controls ?

thanks for any help

Mostly, it's a user setting, not a setting in your program. Look up
"ClearType".

Also, use Tahoma rather than MS Sans Serif as your default font. It looks a
lot better.

thanks. I tried this and it only made the most miniscule difference.
There is still pixelisation, but the tinyist amount of smoothing is
visible

i was hoping there might be a way to enable antialias levels with c#
to provide for better smoothing
thanks
