Take a look at the attached image.  I used the following code in an effort to achieve Trebuchet MS.  
GraphicalChart.Titles("Title1").Font = New System.Drawing.Font("Trebuchet MS", 30, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Bold)

Open in new window

The font sure likes like Arial and not Trebuchet MS.  Where can I find a list of acceptable font family names for the Font constructor argument?

Is that font installed on the PC you display the chart on?  If it isn't then the system will resort to using a default font.

You got it.  That's exactly what it's doing.  How do I make it show Trebuchet MS?

Install Trebuchet MS on the PC it is to run on.  Only installed fonts can be used.

See the screen shot below.  This comes from MS Word on the PC it is to run on.  Trebuchet MS is installed on this machine.  Once again, the question is: Where can I find a list of acceptable font family names for the Font constructor argument?

I use "Trebuchet MS" as the font name (in C# code) - it works on my PC

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            this.label1.Font = new Font("Trebuchet MS", 10);
        }

        private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            this.label1.Font = new Font("Arial", 10);
        }
