Fonts Typography





A font is a particular size, weight and style of a typeface. Each font is a matched set of type, one piece (called a "sort") for each glyph, and a typeface consists of a range of fonts that share an overall design. With the advent of digital typography, font is frequently synonymous with typeface, although the two terms do not necessarily mean the same thing. In particular, the use of "vector" or "outline" fonts means that different sizes of a typeface can be dynamically generated from one design. Each style may still be in a separate "font file" -- for instance, the typeface "Futura" may include the fonts "Futura roman", "Futura italic", "Futura bold" and "Futura extended" —- but the term "font" might be applied either to one of these alone or to the whole typeface.

Is there a way in the RowDataBound event in VB.NET to change the Font used for just a single column in the GridView control?

I have a GridView bound to a data source and for the a single column only in the GridView I want to use the Wingdings3 font so I can put the triangle symbol in that column.
Example of label/legend on form:
Here is my code that I just started changing the first nested IF.  The line I added for the Font change is incorrect syntax.  What would the syntax be?
I don't need to do it at the cell level necessarily if there is a way to change the whole single column to that font too, that would work as long as the header for that column would not change or could be blank:

    Public Sub OnRowDataBound(sender As Object, e As GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles GridViewHierachical.RowDataBound

        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
            If e.Row.Cells(1).Text = "Delayed" Then
                e.Row.Cells(1).ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Red
                e.Row.Cells(1).Text = "p"  ' <== Wingdings3 character used to produce a down pointing solid triangle
                ' Change the font for column one to wingdings3 ==>  GridViewHierachical.Columns(1).DefaultCellStyle.Font = New Drawing.Font(GridViewHierachical.DefaultCellStyle.Font)
            End If
            If e.Row.Cells(1).Text = "Potential Early" Then

I am running Windows 10 on my computer.  I have two excellent photo editing programs (Corel Paintshop Pro 2019 and Cyberlink Photo Director 9).  They are both a lot more than I need, but Microsoft stopped supporting their simple photo editing program so I had to move on.   I am trying to insert a text layer over an existing image.  The image has a pale pink background, so I need to have the text layer be transparent.  I can't figure out how to do that.  Both programs allow me to insert text, but neither allows me to select the font I want (even though the font is listed in the drop down font selection menu).  Can you please help … or direct me to a simpler program that will allow me to do this?


I am trying to generate a pdf of a book on my website using cfdocument.  The book displays correctly as a cfm page but when using cfdocument, it doesn't show the fonts or styles correctly.  I have my styles in a css file.

This is one of the styles from the stylesheet....

ASP.NET Web form with VB.NET.    I have legend on the form.  I tried using the Wingdings3 font.  It looks fine in design view.  When I run it in IE11 it does not show in the Wingdings3 font.  It just shows the letter you use instead.  

So I thought I would try an imagebox control.  It will not browse to the image folder of my project for some reason.  So I dragged/dropped the image from folder to design view.  Again it shows in design view, but does not show at runtime in IE11.

The method I prefer to use as it is the easiest and looks best is to use the Wingdings3 font.    
How do I get it to show at runtime?

If there is no other way, then I guess I will use the image.  I'm guessing it will not be transparent around the symbol - :( .   It has a border around it too.   :(
How do I get rid of the border and get it to show at runtime?

Here is what it looks like in the designer.  The symbols on the left are the images (made using the Windows Snipping tool on the Wingdings).  The symbols on the right are the Wingdings3 font:
Here is what it looks like in IE11 at runtime:

I am converting Crystal Reports to BI Publisher.  BI Publisher uses MS Word for the visual display.  I am extremely inept at look and feel.  Attached you will find 2 samples of text. The crystal uses Arial 8 for these labels.  When I use Arial 8, in word it does not display the same amount of text.  

What font would you suggest to get the same look and quantity of letters in .

Thanks in advance,

I was wondering that is it possible find specific text with certain style applied in it and convert with another text and style?

For example:
i) If we find "5" text with font MathematicalPi-One applied in it than it should be converted into "=" with style Arial Unicode MS. And highlight the changes.

ii) And we have a list of items which we have to convert with them, than what will be the shortest and fastest macro to do the same?

Email to a client is being delivered with wingdings font and not in Chinese as it's supposed to. The email originates from their partner who reports that there's nothing unusual their side.

Whole email message including the subject field is in wingdings (mostly question marks) although it should be showing in simplified Chinese. The same issue is seen on OWA and not just the local Outlook client. Client is on O365 running Outlook 2013.

I have tried changing language on OWA and Outlook to English and also tried changing the encoding language on Outlook with no positive effect.

Does this indicate a language error? I have read some people saying that this may happen due to the sender using a wingdings emoticon. Or could this possibly be an issue on the sender's side?

I am needing a revolving server system that changes IP address once it starts getting hits from sever filters. It needs to be seamless and use the same email address that we establish to send emails out from, but configures a different IP with every 50 to 100 emails. This is what we need to get a marketing job done and the email messages we want to send have to fit the character count specifics and font type. The subject line is the most important and the size cannot exceed X kilobytes for the total email to reach target market.
Hi Experts,

I have following code to convert from characters into signatures.

        Dim Json As Dictionary

        Dim Values As Variant
        Dim Value As Dictionary
        If Len(Signature & "") > 1000 Then
            Me.ScaleMode = 3
            Me.LabelPatientSignature.FontSize = 8
            Me.ScaleMode = 1
            Me.LabelPatientSignature.FontSize = 7
        End If
 'If Len(Me.Signature) < 200 Then Me.DrawWidth = 5
        For Each Value In Json("values")
        If Len(Signature) > 100 Then
            Me.Line (1200 + Value("lx"), Value("ly"))-(1200 + Value("mx"), Value("my")), vbBlack
            Me.Line (1200 + Value("lx"), Value("ly") - 5)-(1200 + Value("mx") + 10, Value("my") + 5), vbBlack, BF
        End If
         'Me.Line (1200 + Value("lx"), Value("ly") - 5)-(4000, Value("my") + 5), vbBlack, BF
'Me.Line (1200 + Value("lx") - 5, Value("ly") - 2)-(1200 + Value("mx") + 5, Value("my") + 2), vbRed

I need to use various fonts for various parts of text in TRichEdit, Delphi Tokyo. For part of the text I need 'Times New Roman' and for the other 'Symbol'. So far does not work what I tried. Either font is set the samo for the whole text or my selected character does not show up.
I wrote code that outputs ZPL and sends it to Zebra printers - both are model Zebra 2824.  Both were purchased used.

One printer prints the label beautifully in a TrueType font.  The other printer renders the same ZPL in blocky oversized letters.   Does anyone have any suggestions?

Sample ZPL below:
^FDItem Number: 205-000004-003^FS^CI0
^FDExpiration Date: 05/31/18^FS^CI0

I have checked:
1. The printer set up (Red Hat Linux) is identical
2. The printers are the same model (Zebra 2824)
3. The printers have the same fonts installed (Printed the font list from each and the output is identical)

What else might I be missing?   Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

We are creating hundreds of C#.NET forms by reading the VFP source and writing the .cs code.

The height, width, top, and bottom of all objects are identical.  The font is identical (exception MS Sans Serif is changed to Microsoft Sans Serif.  Also same font size.

The spacing and size of the objects are slightly different.  Enough to make a mess when the objects(labels, textboxes) are close together.

We need them to be identical. Any suggestions?
