public enum TextBoundsType extends Enum<TextBoundsType>
Textnodes. The setting affects
boundsInParentThe geometry of text can be measured either in terms of the bounds of the particular text to be rendered - visual bounds, or as properties of the font and the characters to be rendered - logical bounds. Visual bounds are more useful for positioning text as graphics, and for obtaining tight enclosing bounds around the text.
Logical bounds are important for laying out text relative to other text and other components, particularly those which also contain text. The bounds isn't specific to the text being rendered, and so will report heights which account for the potential ascent and descent of text using the font at its specified size. Also leading and trailing spaces are part of the logical advance width of the text.
|Enum Constant and Description|
Use logical bounds as the basis for calculating the bounds.
Use logical vertical centered bounds as the basis for calculating the bounds.
Use visual bounds as the basis for calculating the bounds.
|Modifier and Type||Method and Description|
Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name.
Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared.

public static final TextBoundsType LOGICAL
The logical bounds are based on font metrics information. The width is based on the glyph advances and the height on the ascent, descent, and line gap. Except for the last line which does not include the line gap.
Note: This is usually the fastest option.
public static final TextBoundsType VISUAL
Note: This is likely to be slower than using logical bounds.
public static final TextBoundsType LOGICAL_VERTICAL_CENTER
This bounds type is typically used to center
Text nodes vertically
within the bounds of its parent.
