Syntax

dFont([<Image>, ] <Font> [, <Font size> [, <Font attributes> [, <Text inclination>]]])
<Image>: Optional control name or optional Image variable
Versions 24 and later
WindowsLinuxUniversal Windows 10 AppUser code (UMC) Image to use. This image can correspond to:
  • the name of an Image control.
  • the name of an Image variable.
If this parameter is not specified, it is necessary to define the drawing destination with dStartDrawing.

<Font>: Character string
Name of the font used when the text is drawn by dText. This parameter must not correspond to a font family. The list of fonts installed on the current computer is returned by FontList.
Java If the name of the font is not found, Windows searches for a font whose name is close to the requested one. To do so, dStartDrawing must have been used.
<Font size>: Optional integer
Size of the font (in pixels). The default value is 12.
<Font attributes>: Optional constant (or combination of constants)
Font attributes to use:
iStrikeOutStrikes the text drawn.
iBoldAssigns the bold attribute to the text drawn.
iItalicAssigns the italic attribute to the text drawn.
iNormal
(Default value)
Normalizes the text drawn
iUnderlinedUnderlines the text drawn.
<Text inclination>: Optional integer
Specifies the inclination of the text (in degrees). The default value is 0.

Remarks

Using the drawing functions

The drawing functions can be used according to 2 methods:
  • Method 1: Using dDrawing
    • dStartDrawing must be called before any other drawing function. dStartDrawing is used to define the element (Image control or Image variable) onto which the drawing functions will be applied.
    • When drawing on an Image control:
      • The drawing functions operate on a copy ("bitmap") of the image. You can use the drawing functions of Windows (via API or CallDLL32) but these functions must use the DC (Device Context) returned by dStartDrawing.
      • dEndDrawing and dStartDrawing must not be called in the same process.
        The drawing will not be displayed if dEndDrawing and dStartDrawing are called in the same process: it will be automatically erased.
  • Versions 24 and later
    WindowsLinuxUniversal Windows 10 AppUser code (UMC) Method 2: indicating the drawing target directly in the syntax (via a parameter)
    The <Image> parameter is used to specify directly the target of the drawing. dStartDrawing becomes useless.

Fonts

FontList is used to retrieve the list of valid fonts (TrueType, PostScript) installed on the current computer.
To get good results when angling the text drawn, the <Font> used must be a "True Type" font.
