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.

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.

ASP.NET Web form app with VB.NET back end code.

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:

    {
		
		//$this->Write(5,stripslashes(txtentities($e)),'FJ');
        //HTML parser
        $html=str_replace("\n",' ',$html);

                    $this->PutLink($this->HREF,$e);
                elseif($this->ALIGN=='justify')

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:

Hello,

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,

Brock

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?

Thanks.

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 str As String
  str = "{" & """values""" & ":" & Me.Signature & "}"  


        Dim Json As Dictionary
        Set Json = JsonConverter.ParseJson(str)
        Dim Values As Variant
     
        
        Dim Value As Dictionary
        
        If Len(Signature & "") > 1000 Then
    
            Me.ScaleMode = 3
            Me.LabelPatientSignature.FontSize = 8
        Else
            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
        Else
            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
