I'm writing a simple applet in 1.1 and want to get the list of fonts available.  I get a compile-time error using
getFontList();
I can't seem to get the syntax right, or perhaps I'm not including all the java classes I need?
Or just not using this function correctly?
String fontnames[];
fontnames = new String[10];
fontnames = getFontList();
Thanks in advance for finding my goofy mistake!

I have verified the methods available in Applet, as well as all the ones that are inherited
from Panel, Container and Component, and there is no getFontList() method available.
If you want to list the fonts available, you have to use the Toolkit class like the
following:

// get a Toolkit instance
Toolkit toolkit = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit();

// get the list of fonts
String fonts[] = toolkit.getFontList()
