Any ideas on how do I get rid of this error?

Exception: FontManager::getFont - A Font object with the specified name 'Tahoma-12.font' does not exist within the system

Offending code in ceguifont.h

float getLineSpacing (float y_scale = 1.0f) const
{ return d_height * y_scale; }

Called by the following code (mine):

...setup resource paths, etc...

Skip the third line (if there's only one font setDefaultFont is not necessary) or try it this way:

Code: Select all

CEGUI::Font* myFont = CEGUI::FontManager::getSingleton().createFont("Tahoma-12.font");

Thx Kuehrli, getting rid of the 3rd line fixed it!

You have probably got confused (i forgive you ;)) by the slight difference in the CreateFont and SetDefaultFont methods.

CreateFont receives a filename, however SetDefaultFont receives a font name, which is the Name attribute in your font.xml file. So this will probably work:

Code: Select all


Or, as suggested by Kuehrli, pass the font itself.
