Inherits: GeometryInstance3D < VisualInstance3D < Node3D < Node < Object

A node for displaying plain text in 3D space.

Description

A node for displaying plain text in 3D space. By adjusting various properties of this node, you can configure things such as the text's appearance and whether it always faces the camera.

Enumerations

enum DrawFlags:

DrawFlags FLAG_SHADED = 0

If set, lights in the environment affect the label.

DrawFlags FLAG_DOUBLE_SIDED = 1

If set, text can be seen from the back as well. If not, the text is invisible when looking at it from behind.

DrawFlags FLAG_DISABLE_DEPTH_TEST = 2

Disables the depth test, so this object is drawn on top of all others. However, objects drawn after it in the draw order may cover it.

DrawFlags FLAG_FIXED_SIZE = 3

Label is scaled by depth so that it always appears the same size on screen.

DrawFlags FLAG_MAX = 4

Represents the size of the DrawFlags enum.


enum AlphaCutMode:

AlphaCutMode ALPHA_CUT_DISABLED = 0

This mode performs standard alpha blending. It can display translucent areas, but transparency sorting issues may be visible when multiple transparent materials are overlapping. GeometryInstance3D.cast_shadow has no effect when this transparency mode is used; the Label3D will never cast shadows.

AlphaCutMode ALPHA_CUT_DISCARD = 1

This mode only allows fully transparent or fully opaque pixels. Harsh edges will be visible unless some form of screen-space antialiasing is enabled (see ProjectSettings.rendering/anti_aliasing/quality/screen_space_aa). This mode is also known as alpha testing or 1-bit transparency.

Note: This mode might have issues with anti-aliased fonts and outlines, try adjusting alpha_scissor_threshold or using MSDF font.

Note: When using text with overlapping glyphs (e.g., cursive scripts), this mode might have transparency sorting issues between the main text and the outline.

AlphaCutMode ALPHA_CUT_OPAQUE_PREPASS = 2

This mode draws fully opaque pixels in the depth prepass. This is slower than ALPHA_CUT_DISABLED or ALPHA_CUT_DISCARD, but it allows displaying translucent areas and smooth edges while using proper sorting.

Note: When using text with overlapping glyphs (e.g., cursive scripts), this mode might have transparency sorting issues between the main text and the outline.

AlphaCutMode ALPHA_CUT_HASH = 3

This mode draws cuts off all values below a spatially-deterministic threshold, the rest will remain opaque.


Property Descriptions

float alpha_antialiasing_edge = 0.0

  • void set_alpha_antialiasing_edge ( float value )

  • float get_alpha_antialiasing_edge ( )

Threshold at which antialiasing will be applied on the alpha channel.


AlphaAntiAliasing alpha_antialiasing_mode = 0

The type of alpha antialiasing to apply. See AlphaAntiAliasing.


AlphaCutMode alpha_cut = 0

The alpha cutting mode to use for the sprite. See AlphaCutMode for possible values.


float alpha_hash_scale = 1.0

  • void set_alpha_hash_scale ( float value )

  • float get_alpha_hash_scale ( )

The hashing scale for Alpha Hash. Recommended values between 0 and 2.


float alpha_scissor_threshold = 0.5

  • void set_alpha_scissor_threshold ( float value )

  • float get_alpha_scissor_threshold ( )

Threshold at which the alpha scissor will discard values.


AutowrapMode autowrap_mode = 0

If set to something other than TextServer.AUTOWRAP_OFF, the text gets wrapped inside the node's bounding rectangle. If you resize the node, it will change its height automatically to show all the text. To see how each mode behaves, see AutowrapMode.


BillboardMode billboard = 0

The billboard mode to use for the label. See BillboardMode for possible values.


bool double_sided = true

If true, text can be seen from the back as well, if false, it is invisible when looking at it from behind.


bool fixed_size = false

If true, the label is rendered at the same size regardless of distance.
