A NativeScript plugin that extends the <Label> UI widget by adding the text-shadow CSS property.

This package only works on NativeScript >=7.0. You will find the NS 6 version here;

shadow examples sample from the playground

Installation

ns plugin add @tralves/shadowed-label

Usage

After installing the plugin, you can add the shadow to the shadowed label with the CSS syntax:

text-shadow: <offset-x> <offset-y> <blur-radius> <color>

E.g.

.shadow1 {
    text-shadow: 1 1 3 blue;
}

.shadow2 {
    text-shadow: 10px 10px 10px rgba(100, 130, 200, 0.8);
}

You can also add the text shadow as a property (e.g. <ShadowedLabel textShadow="1 1 1 #55a">)

iOS note: The blur radius appears to scatter the shadow more on iOS and on Android.
