Font size at run time

Postby ritz » Fri May 13, 2005 12:33

Hello All,

I am facing the following issue in using the fonts.

I have loaded default font "arial" in my widget. by default size is 12.

I want to change it's size to 10 at run time.

I am not able to find any method for this.

The only way i could get is use createFont method again to create a different font.

But i need the ttf file name for using this method, which i will not get from my font object.

Can any body suggest me some other method for changing font sizes on run time.

Thanks and Regards,
Ritu

The best thing to do is to create an arial-12.font file and have something in there like this:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<Font Name="Arial-12" Filename="arial.ttf" Type="Dynamic" Size="12" NativeHorzRes="800" NativeVertRes="600" AutoScaled="true"/>

You can then load the new XML font definition as normal.
