    I'm in the sharing mood so here's a real simple but very useful one.

    void drawStringShadow(Graphics g, String text, int x, int y)

    It's often hard to read text on the canvas but adding a shadow to your text goes a long ways. It's simple but I don't see it many scripts and I assume it's because once people see there's not a native method or property for it they bail on it so here, have at it!

    private void drawStringShadow(Graphics g, String text, int x, int y) {
        Color c = g.getColor();
        g.drawString(text, x + 1, y + 1);
        g.drawString(text, x, y);

    Use it just as you would Graphics#drawString but include your graphics variable in the arguments and set the graphic's colour before calling drawStringShadow, just as you would normally:

    g.setColor(new Color(168, 219, 168));
    drawStringShadow(g, scriptStatus, drawX, drawY);


    Hope this helps some newbies!
