fonts in Visual Studio

P: n/a
I have a bunch of custom fonts installed on my system.
For instance if I look at the font drop-down in word pad
I see about 90 fonts, but if I build an app using VS.Net,
add a label, and try to change the font - I'm only given
a choice of about 20 - the "standard" fonts which are
installed with the OS (XP).

How can I get the rest of my fonts in this box?

Thanks.

Hi Jack,

Sorry to misunderstand your problem. You problem is that you can not choose
as many fonts in VS.NET as in Word. Can you enumerate the fonts you can
find in WordPad and the fonts you can find in label's Font properties in
VS.NET So that I can narrow down your issue more quickly.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Jack,

You may try to call the API EnumFontFamilies.
Here is a link about calling api in .net framework.

Hope this will help you.
