VB.NET and Fonts

P: n/a

Hi All,

I have a list box control, and I want to set the display font to
Terminal. However, in the Font property of the object, Terminal is not
one of the available fonts, even though Terminal is a font that is
installed under Windows. How can I make Terminal available for my .NET
controls? Do I need to install it under .NET somehow?

Thanks a mil,

Baz.

..NET will only recognize true-type fonts. If the version of Terminal you
have is a type A font stored in a .FON file you can't use it.

Maybe you can find a true-type version of it somewhere and load it with a
PrivateFontCollection.

You will need a TrueType (or maybe OpenType) version of the font.
