Deploy QT with subpixel hinting on Win7

  • Hi All,
    First of all BEST REGARDS,

    I use QT Version 4.7.1(open-source vs2008) and Visual Studio 2008(SP1) to Create QT applications. My System does not render fonts with Sub-Pixel rendering in 'Debug' and 'Release'(static) Builds. My fonts have 11 < pointSize < 18. I tested with QFont::setStyleStrategy (QFont::PreferAntialias) || QFont::setStyleStrategy (QFont::NoAntialias) with QPainter::setRenderHints(QPainter::TextAntialiasing) in many systems(2578!). ALL results are Equal

    Can anyone Help Me to resolve this Issue on "My PC(Windows settings)" or "QT Configuration(QT Build or Another package settings)" ?

    Thanks in Advance,

  • Afaik, on windows XP, subpixel hinting is only supported by a global computer setting. I don't know anything about more modern flavours of windows.

    In Qt, these flags are supported with freetype, which is not compiled on windows. I had a similar issue back 2 years ago with my beloved Qt 4.6.2 and I searched quite a lot, but I might be wrong or outdated here.

  • Thanks volker for hint and link,
    Thanks florent for your help,

    The commercial version of QT contains subpixel hinting on windows ?
