How to detect if the font is a true type font by using VB.NET?

Hi,

We are trying to load all the true type font font name inside the user system into a combo box.
We manage to work until the code as below, but, may I know how can we check if the font is a true type font?

Please advice.



For Each font As FontFamily In FontFamily.Families
                If (font.IsStyleAvailable(FontStyle.Regular)) Then
                      ' Do some code here
                End If
            Next font

Open in new window

http://www.developerfusion.com/code/189/truetype-font/ <- this is design for VB but not VB.NET.

http://aspalliance.com/318_Loading_a_true_type_font_with_GDI <- this is just loading True Type Font, but it's not checking if the input font is a valid true type font or not.

Thanks.

It's okay. Just that I tried that VB6 solution before and trying to convert to .NET, but no luck.

FontFamilies only enumerates TrueType fonts.  Screen and plotter fonts are not supported.  Thus, no action is required.
