C# Embedded font for button

Hello all,

I've added a font to my project and set it to "Embedded Resource".

I load the font into a global PrivateFontColl ection. (InitCustomFont -
shown below)

I then set the font of a label to be equal to the custom font
(SetCustomFont - shown below)

The font size changes but the family doesn't. If I write directly to
the form using Graphics.DrawSt ring the new font is displayed???

Does that mean I can't change the font of labels/buttons etc. to
resource fonts?


private void InitCustomFont( )
// Load the resource
Stream fontStream =
this.GetType(). Assembly.GetMan ifestResourceSt ream("Graphyx.c ustom.ttf");

// Create a buffer to read into
byte[] fontData = new byte[fontStream.Leng th];

// Fetch the font program from the resource
fontStream.Read (fontData, 0, (int)fontStream .Length);

fixed (byte* pFontData = fontData)

// Pass the font to the font collection
pfc.AddMemoryFo nt((System.IntP tr)pFontData,
(int)fontStream .Length);
// Close the resource stream
fontStream.Clos e();

private void SetCustomFont()
System.Drawing. Font fn;
FontFamily ff;

ff = pfc.Families[0];

fn = new Font(ff, 16, FontStyle.Regul ar);

//lblHelp.Font = new System.Drawing. Font("Courier New", 16.0f,
lblHelp.Font = fn;
