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.

Python 3 Fundamentals

I am having an issue with installing fonts. I have six Europe fonts bold, boldItalic, light, lightItalic,regular and regularItalic, all seperate otf files. I install the first one and it works as expected but when I try to install the next file windows prompts with a duplicate file error. If I tell windows to overwrite the file then the first font changes of course to the new font. For example I Installed Europe-Bold.otf and then installed europe-boldItalic.otf and it just replaced the first bold font I installed. Any ideas? This is a windows 1803 build

Hi all!

About Sharepoint 2013 & Sharepoint 2016:

I need to change top navigation menu font size.
I'm very novice in Sharepoint and I understand I have to use Sharepoint Designer 2013 to change maybe Oslo.html or some css files.
Please tell me what is the easiest way to change that font size on the top menu?
I would like to have exact information what to do and how and where. Thanks in advance!

Word 2016 "There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font."

I am getting this error on a newly upgraded HP Z840, we upgraded from Win 7 pro to Win 10 Pro, also Office 2010 to Office 2016. Its the same shared file system however we did upgrade servers to 2016 and completely renamed the domain and nuked the old one. I dont see any permission issues with the old file system and I have tried every internet remedy. Rename .dot, check permissions on font folder, make sure document is not protected. It does not seem to do the same thing on newly created files.

This is my last attempt before contacting 365 support.

The standard UserForm does not allow mixed fonts to be entered into the same Text control. Under excel vba control, I want to type simple rich text for scientific notation: superscript, subscript, italic, with SYMBOL font plus one or just a few standard fonts, like Calibri, or Tahoma, for example.
These formatting features to be applied together (in various combinations) to just a sentence or two, in each instance.

If this is possible, I'd then want to use vba automation to copy the rich text output and paste it into another office format: particularly into a shape object in MS Visio. I'm aware that mixed text can be composed in Visio shapes directly, but in my excel+visio automation piece, it would greatly help the user to compose rich text outside the visio application.

Is there a way of achieving this?

Thanks

Dear All,
I have a problem with a customized Windows based application which is developed in .NET.

It is a conversion application used to transliterate text in romanized format into native languages viz. Chinese, Urdu and the like; using the font Arial Unicode MS which follows the Unicode Standard. The conversion used to take place correctly until recently when we changed our operating system from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 r2.

Interestingly, a bizzare event is happening. Suppose we want to translitereate Romanized script into two languages A and B. Using the application If we transliterate language A first then it gets converted correctly. After that language B converts incorrectly. Following it in second attempt after re-running the application if we transliterate language B first, it gets converted correctly following it with Language A, conversion gets inccorect.

Hi. I am trying to change the font, the font size and color of a cell in an excel worksheet from my vb.net application.

The first two lines of code run without errors but do not change anything in the cells. The third line, to change the color, gives me the following error at runtime: "System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: 'Type mismatch. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80020005 (DISP_E_TYPEMISMATCH))'"

The workbook is open to not read-only and is editable, in fact, the same cells will add values.

Here is my code:

'Format formula cell to match font and size of existing cells
                ForcastWorkSheet.Cells.Range(strRange).Font.Name = "Arial"
                ForcastWorkSheet.Cells.Range(strRange).Font.Size = "9"
                ForcastWorkSheet.Cells.Range(strRange).Interior.Color = "Orange, Accent 2, Lighter 60%"

Next are elements I use to upload images. File uploading form to browse for file, then to select the file and to confirm the selection with "open" button. Upload button, which will start the upload with redirecting to php file. And "span" element which will display selected image file.

<form id="avatar_form" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="loadbackImg1.php">
            <label class="custom-file-upload"  >
            <input  type="file"  id="fileUpload1" name="loadBckImg" ></label>
             <input class="Btn2"  id="fileUpload1Btn" type="submit" value="Upload" > 
      </form><br>  <!---->                           
    <span class="upload-path1"></span><br> <br>

Open in new window

Next is the explanation of procedure and why I am using "span" element. On change event of file upload window-form, it will set ".files[0].name ". File upload window does't have any value when form is opened first time. When file is selected and confirmed the selection value ".files[0].name " is set unconditionally and displayed in "span" element. That's why upload button gets red font for "load" caption to notice user that everything is ready to click on button and to start the upload.
function fileUploadF(){
   span[0].innerHTML = document.getElementById('fileUpload1').files[0].name;
   document.getElementById('fileUpload1Btn').style.color="#5e80ad" ;
}
document.getElementById('fileUpload1').onchange=fileUploadF;

Open in new window

But user my then decide that he would prefer not to upload the selected file this time and to do other operations on the currently opened page. In this case "span" has to disappear and upload button caption color to return back to previous color on any click on page. Next is code does this:

window.addEventListener("click", function(event) {
   if (span[0].innerHTML){
    span[0].innerHTML = '';
    document.getElementById('fileUpload1Btn').style.color="#B2BABB" ;
   }
});

I built a wpf application for a screen resolution of 1920*1080 ...
however the user will sometimes use a resolution 3810*2160.
How to i make my application so it keeps its aspect ratio in a way that if in a screen resolution of 1920*1080  occupies 80% of screen then in a screen resolution of 3840*2160 it also occupies 80% of screen.
I will be looking into font sizes and all that stuff too... but at least for now I need that the grids, windows and controls all resize accordingly.

Regards.

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:
Wingdings3.PNG
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?

Thanks,

Phil

Hello experts, can someone help me to find a solution for my problem

I have used fpdf to create a pdf file. I used html write function to style my text. However, i cannot justify my text like how multicell do when it breaks to new line. I have stuck for this problem for a few days and need a solution immediately .

Can someone look up for my code:

function WriteHTML($html)
    {
		
		//$this->Write(5,stripslashes(txtentities($e)),'FJ');
        //HTML parser
        $html=str_replace("\n",' ',$html);
        $a=preg_split('/<(.*)>/U',$html,-1,PREG_SPLIT_DELIM_CAPTURE);
        foreach($a as $i=>$e)
        {
            if($i%2==0)
            {
                //Text
                if($this->HREF)
                    $this->PutLink($this->HREF,$e);
                elseif($this->ALIGN=='justify')
                    $this->Cell(0,5,$e,0,1,'C');

                    $this->Write(5,$e);
            }

            {
                //Tag

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:
Design.PNG
Here is what it looks like in IE11 at runtime:
