How to save the fontname and size of a fontdialog to the settings-file.

Dear Experts,

I have a main form called MainForm and a child form called Adjustment.
These 2 forms are seperate forms (not MDI). On the Adjustment form
I have a button for calling the fontDialog1. And a OK-button for closing
the form.

What I would like is when a user chooses a font and size in the fontdialog
on the adjustment form that after pressing the OK-button the fontname and
size will be written to the settings-file.

Who knows the answer and is willing to help me?

Greetings, Peter Kiers

You can create a user-scoped setting in your project's Settings panel (under Project->Properties->Settings). These settings will be stored per-user in each user's private App Settings directory (or Local Settings, I always forget which). Here's a nice doc describing the process:
