Possible to show text with drop shadow?

Can I create a drop shadow on a text in a label?
In CSS you would add "text-shadow" but on Roku?

I want to place text over an image and still have it readable without creating a background rectangle.

Re: Possible to show text with drop shadow?

As far as I'm aware, the Label component doesn't have a drop shadow option, but you can accomplish one by placing two labels on top of each other with the bottom one shifted slightly and a different color.  If you'll be using it a lot, then you may consider creating a custom component.
