JS API 4.21:  Trying to create a TextSymbol for a Graphic in a GraphicsLayer (or the MapView.graphics) that has a background and/or a border, neither of which seem to work.

Basic sample:  https://jsbin.com/qurexuh/edit?html,output

TextSymbol doc indicates there are supported properties:

- backgroundColor
- borderLineColor
- borderLineSize

Halo works, but setting these values seems to have no effect.  Can't find anything on it, am I missing something?

Thx!

Hi @TVlasschaert, unfortunately, those properties are documented as only working when using TextSymbol with a MapImageLayer:

https://developers.arcgis.com/javascript/latest/api-reference/esri-symbols-TextSymbol.html#backgroun...

Down the road, we do plan on making some enhancements in this area to make those properties useful in other scenarios, like your use case.
